I have been thinking about this for a little while, but finally got around to trying it. What I am doing here is creating a scale emblem which is similar to the ones used on modern vehicles. I just used stickers, but this could be done with custom printed stickers too. It’s stuck on Styrene, but I would like to try it on thin metal.

I am using Art Resin to seal the sticker and give it that domed look. Once the sticker was on the styrene and cut out, I glued it to a stick to hold it up straight and level. After a few minutes a torch was used to pop all the tiny bubbles. It takes 24 hours to harden and 72 hours to fully cure. For this reason I placed a Dixie cup over them to keep dust from landing on them.
