Decal Design Tutorial Finished!

My decal design tutorial using Adobe Illustrator is finished and waiting for you in the Tutorials section in the top menu. There is a free 30-day trial of this software available at Adobe.com. The software is not cheap, so I would recommend making good use of the 30-day trial. I chose Dead Girl from X-Statix as the subject of this tutorial. If you follow the steps and create this decal you should be able to create almost anyone. I hope this tutorial is helpful for you!

This is the “vanilla” Testors silver. They also have a silver paint in their Model Masters brand, but I have used that before and this is a rare instance where their vanilla brand is far superior to its Model Masters counterpart. I will be comparing their finish, ease of clean-up, compatability with Sharpies, and durability. Click the title to read all the juicy details.
