Soundboard Decals

Decals come either press-on or varnish transfer. The varnish transfer decal is inverted.

Every minute detail of the varnish decal is hand painted with extra-thick (old/cured) varnish. Once the varnish is barely tacky... i.e., it will barely stick to the hairs on the end of your nose... the decal is turned right side-up, placed into position and clamped overnight to allow the varnish to cure.

All decals are then rubbed with a special roller or burnishing tool prior to softening the paper backing with water and removing. The decal must be buried in several coats of lacquer to preserve it.
