That's true, when you wet it, the glue is shot. Once you stick it down, that's
it. It will probably stretch if you try to peel it off. Wet it and you can slide
it around. Capillary action holds it on and the water dries off and the decal
looks so good. Try it with one of the decals that you won't use.
