Making a custom Decal?

Postby cmr1991 » Tue Jun 19, 2018 6:06 pm

Hey,

I have a few Db5 bonnets with the "superleggera" metal sticker/decal removed.

Very common issue. I am thinking about replicating the superleggera logo in decal form, it will be gold.

Problem is, I have NO idea where to start, has anyone done anything like this before that could possibly give me some tips on how to get it right? I have applied decals before... just never physically made one from scratch.

I haven't tried yet, but I will be for my M113 armoured school bus!
Watch this space. However, gold will be tricky unless you have a plotter or laser cutter that can cut a mask so you can spray gold paint. I've heard of metallic inks for printers, but know nothing about them.
