Good, it really isn't funny when a maker's decals are floating around, outside his/her control...

Dale,

I think I know the source of the decals. The Confente decals are varnish fix; so I hope they don't end up in the wrong place. The Baylis decals are the very first printing of that version of decals; the problem is they are pretty much unusable. They are waterslide decals that were screen printed by a company that knew nothing of making decals. They are so fragile that once the hit the water they begin to break into tiny pieces and float away. There is no way they will come off the paper in one piece and for sure they will not make it to a frame intact. Whatever money is paid for them, they are usable for frame decals. Did I plan this to happen? No; it's just a happy accident.
