how to apply water slide decals?

BTW...what is water slide decal?
Water slide decals (or slip decals) are water-mounted decals generally printed face up and rely on the dextrose corn sugar residue from the decal paper to bond the decal transfer to a surface. A water-based adhesive layer can be added to the decal to create a stronger bond or may be placed between layers of lacquer to create a durable decal transfer. <<<haha this information is from wikipedia LOL.

IT ADDS UP DETAILS ON YOUR GUNPLA AND OTHER SCALE MODELS!
YOU CAN ALSO USE THEM ON YOUR SKIN, WALL, MUGS, CERAMICS, ETC. ETC...!!!!



NOTE: MINORS SHOULD ASK AN ADULT TO HELP YOU CUT THE PARTS YOU LIKE!

1. You need a cutting tool! 
ex. olfa knife, x-acto knife, hobby knife (don't use your kitchen knife LOL)
and then
choose the piece you like to put on your gunpla


2. After cutting the piece you like, take your tweezers
you can also use your hand to do this, but be careful when holding small parts because you might crumple it or accidentally tear it.


3. Let it soak in the water for 10-15 seconds.


4. After soaking it into the water, you can now take your cotton bud with you and start dragging the image to the part of the Gunpla you like to put it on!


5. Take a clean and dry cotton bud and start rolling the tip of it above the decal to remove the air bubbles.

Don't push the bud too hard or you will change the position of your decal or might even damage it.


6. And last item you will be needing is the decal setter.
Decal setter prevents your decal from being scratched easily.



7. Same thing applies here, you have to make sure that you are not pushing to hard because the decal is still fragile in this stage.




and voilà that's it folks :D you have now acquired the ability to decal your gunpla!!!
