Storage of Decals

Decals are affected by humidity, which is reasonable considering that they are water soluable. Thus they normall come with a protective waxy cover, which needs to be removed before using, but should be left in place until use. But if stored improperly, these covers can adhere themselves to the decal and they are hard, if not impossible, to remove properly. One could try firing with this cover on them as they will burn out in the kiln, but this is taking a chance that the decal will look good. It's better to store them properly... just store your decals in an air-tight plastic bag and they should be fine.
