    Waterslide tranfers

    I'm thinking of experimenting with creating some waterslide decals with an inkjet printer to use on headstocks. Does anyone have any experience they can share?

    Thanks

    Two ukes I was getting ready for MUMF. All going reasonably well until I cracked a soundboard whilst gluing on the bridge. Will have to see how well I can repair.
