Place decal into warm water for about 2 minutes

tape 4
Turn over decal to the paper side and scratch off the paper – don’t scratch the ink to hard

Allow to dry – you may see some residual paper after it dries. If so, repeat the water soak and scratch.

Apply a clear drying glue to the back of the decal. I recommend Aileene’s tacky glue.

Hold the decal into place on the rocket for a minute or so to get a good seal.
