I have a decal that is lifting and I want to stick it back down?

What glue would you recommend?

I want something clear and rubbery, I don't want it to bond to the paint.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Helicopter tape....http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2m-x-50mm-Glo ... 4ac756e5a6

Simple and effective - use a hairdryer to soften it should you ever need to remove it.

Got some of that for frame protection.

This is just a small lifting decal that I want to stick back down. I don't want to apply another layer of tape over it to hold it down.

Don't know of any glue that won't bond it to the paint - tricky one - best of luck

I use gold size:

http://www.cornelissen.com/water-colour ... 75-ml.html

use the gold size on a soft artists brush under the decal, wipe with a damp cloth to get anything off the surface then tape down with masking tape and leave to dry.

Jobs a gud un :)
