Any tricks on using Future over decals?

Hi,

I've been playing around with spraying Future as a clear coat.  When I sprayed it over decals yesterday, it caused the decals to wrinkle, and they did not flatten again after it dried.  

I  cut the Future 10% with rubbing alcohol.   Could that have caused the decals to wrinkle?

Yah, it was probably almost certainly the alcohol that did it. Alcohol is an ingredient in those "hot" setting solutions like the old Solvaset. I've never had any problems using Future over (fully dried) decals.

A friend in Model Airplane World uses Future AS his "decal set." He brushes some future on the area where the decal goes, and then applies the decal into the wet Future. As the Future dries, it sucks the decal down into all the detail.

I tried it once, and it didn't work as well for me as he claims it does for him, but it might have been the type of decal I was using (an old kit decal, as I recall).
