First time with these stencils.  On one I couldn’t get rid of that square haze. Procedure- take sheet of stencil, dip in water for a few seconds, apply micro set to surface, take clear film from stencil, apply, mash down with qtip, wait 6-7 hours, take off carrier film.  Wipe off any glue residue.

wonder why that one left that square?  Too much microset?

I am a bit confused.  That looks like decal frosting or silvering.  Is that a decal or a dry transfer?  When you say stencil, is that the process or the type of marking?

Stencil meaning the marking type.  I don’t know what a dry transfer is.  These aren’t decals.  They are only like a decal in that water is used but the application is different.  These are supposed to be superior to decals.  I applied more and getting better results.   Sorry they are hard to explain.  You can see tutorials HGW stencils.

These are wet transfers.

I am currently using a set on the Corsair I'm building.  I followed the instructions to the T, and now I am at the step where you are to remove the carrier film.  Only problem, the carrier film seems to be firmly attached to the surface.  I have tried to get the tip of an X-Acto knife under it, but so far that effort has not worked.

I wonder if I used too much Mr Mark Softener?  Has anyone worked with these that could share some insights?  As it stands right now, my first Corsair is essentially ruined, and I have a second set intended for the Tamiya Corsair that I am also building but given that kit's cost I am pretty sure I'm not actually going to use them on it.
