Hey!

First post!  Need some instructions here:

Just received Mr. Mark Setter and Mr. Mark Softer.  The only instructions on the bottles is written in a language I can not read. I have never used them before but I know that Bobby likes and uses them so I thought I would give them a try.  Which one goes done first?  I assume one is applied to the model and then the other is applied to the decal once its on the model.  I just don't know in which order.

Does anybody have any experience with this product?

Thanks!

Joe

Joe,

If you are a subscriber to the videos on Genessis, Bob has a tutorial video all about decals and using micro sol and micro set. Mr Mark is the solutions for decals that are tougher to get to respond to the micro sol/set. Mr mark can be too strong for some decals.

this above link is to Bob's video.

If you are not a subscriber, you can Google "Mr mark setter/solution" and find videos on those solutions. Basically its the setter first, then the softer.
there are specific instructions that you also need to be sure to follow when using either pair of chemicals.

here is an example of one of the internet vids on Mr Mark products:

Hope this helps! Best wishes!

Thanks Ted!

I've seen his instructional video for using micro set/sol and I assume that Mr Mark setter/softer were used in the same fashion.  Apparently, they are.  I have some decals here that won't respond to micro set and hoped that Mr. Mark would work, but alas, it did not.  These are cheap decals any way.

Have you used Mr. Mark decal softener before?  I understand that Japanese and Chinese decals are thicker than their European/American counter parts and it was designed primarily for those decals.

Thanks for the help, Ted.  I'm a beginner so I appreciate all the help I can get.  Everything is a learning experience for me.
