Turns out, stickers aren't so bad after all. I've long thought that water slides were the only way to go when it comes to decals, but I forced myself to give stickers another chance. They certainly have their limit, specifically when it comes to uneven surfaces. But on flat pieces, they get the job done for the most part. I only used about 1/3 of the stickers that come with this kit and I like the look it achieved. Water slides are still superior, but I've come to realize stickers are alright. Check it out!
