Peter’s been in touch with a very slick way to make your own liveries:
Having tried for many years to find a suitable method…
Firstly trying transfers that one dipped in water and slid on…[Like the old ‘AIrfix’ kits]
Using A4 transfer paper and printing out the logo on the computer [using Corel Draw]
Then using 2/3 coats of waterproof varnish to keep the colours from running [Epson photo printer]
Not very successful as the varnish destroyed the integrity of the transfer paper…
Recently, I came across some A4 transparent self adhesive glossy vinyl printing paper [E-Bay]
Again making the logo’s in Corel Draw and printing out on the paper…peeling the backing paper off and sticking to the loco…..This was by far more successful..
A coat of matt water based varnish took the gloss shine off the gloss vinyl..[Air brushed on]
Some of my recent work…
A search on the internet, soon finds the company logo’s that I can use…
The text is done with the text tool in Corel in most cases and produces a much better result..
