Hey there... Having previously broken a forum guideline and resurrected an old thread (sorry), I hope to fix any bad karma with this post. I'm on my first headstock waterslide adventure. The project's guidelines are: have no lines showing can't use a spray gun Read a lot on here about waterslide techniques, and I feel like there's a lot of competing options. I've tried water-based poly->label->poly technique (w/sanding in-between poly layers) that didn't hide the white lines. Sanded it off, and tried an ink-transfer technique with a blending pen and photocopy. Not clean enough, sanded it down, and started again. Sanded to bare wood, and soaked it in turpentine, and put on Lazertran labels. Let it dry. Dabbed white vinegar over it. The question: what is the best next step to hide white lines? I see one thread (http://www.tdpri.com/threads/how-to-make-headstock-decals.264248/page-4) recommending Microsol to melt the label. Others rely on the lacquer melting the label. Some, on the right combination of sanding and spraying (which I won't be doing, nor using nitro). Is there a definitive "definitive" technique? Reading any of the existing threads turns up many options. I want to follow the best option next, and not have to start again (if possible).
