How To Correct Warped Model and/or Parts
To correct warped parts, heat water to near boiling (bubbles forming on bottom of pot). Use a pot large enough and deep enough to submerge warped portion of model or part.
Place warped portion of item into hot water for 5 seconds (do not overheat). Plastic has memory and will return to the original shape as when cast.
If part does not return to
original shape or does not soften, immerse again in hot water longer than 5
seconds. You can gently shape warped portion if the heated part does
not return to original shape on it's own.
CAUTION: ITEM IS HOT. DO NOT APPLY FORCE.
When item is back to original shape allow to cool.

Lift the paper backing with the decal from the water and carefully slide the decal onto the miniature.

Brush setting solution onto the decal while it is still wet. The setting solution will soften the decal, allowing it to adhere better, especially to curved surfaced.
