I think sol breaks it down

It hates GW washes - I always paint in washes, space marines shoulder pad done, sol on decal, decal on shoulder pad, almost instantly took the wash off - some very creative damage and dirt details added to those 6 marines!

Did you use gloss varnish on the pauldron first? I have been watching a number of videos on water slide decals. I am getting ready to do my space marines but it's been years since I have used decals. I have some Mr. Mark Setter and Softener coming in the mail. First, apply the setter (glue) and then apply the softener to then the edges and make it look painted on the model. Or at least that is the premise. I watched an hour and a half youtube video of a guy comparing and using like 10 different decal products.

When I do decalling, I put down a light coat of spray varnish first.  Then mark setter.  Then apply the decal and use a cotton bud to wick away excess liquid.  I let it dry for a bit then apply mark fit.  Then another coat of spray varnish followed by some weathering/ blending to make it appear like it's a part of the paint job.

Yeah - I put a coat of varnish on first. This helps reduce the shine effect the decal has on the model, then use the softner to bed the decal on and finally I often use either a matte or light sheen finish to seal the lot.

bold is me - I am impatient which is probably why mine go so wrong. I need to leave them sitting on the model a bit before  go softening them because often what happens is it starts moving again - and probably more often than not, that's when I rip the decal because I've softened it, it's moving, I move it back BOOM - ripped decal.

More patience is required - I'm waaaaay too hasty with my model building.
