    The chemicals in crazy glue are pretty antagonistic to shiny finishes. That is one adhesive I won't try on this.
    I was thinking about trying some shellac. That's pretty watery thin and I know it won't hurt the decals. I just got to get all my duckies in a row. Nother words, get organized. HAH!

    If you pricked the bubble, maybe the air could be released and decal would be flat? Good luck!

    Judi,

    Re-read my posts. There is already a crack in the decal. There is no air trapped under it. Now, I've said that two or three times.

    I just don't want to make the damage worse.

    Superglue injected under the decal was my first thought. They make various thicknesses and some are water thin. It also dries clear. You just have to be very careful to not get it on top of the decal. Your shellac idea may be more promising. We know it won't hurt the decal and would be sticky enough to hold, especially after you clear-coated over the decal to protect it.

    Rodney,

    I'm 99 and 44 / 100 % sure that is what I'm going to do. I have shellac, and somewhere I have a syringe with small needle. As soon as I find it I'll get set up to try this. I will of course take a pic or three as I'm doing it.

    I'm not an expert, but I do know that cyanoacrylates have no business being anywhere near precious decals. I'd go with shellac just for safety. Especially as the only clean up for superglue is acetone, so if anything went wrong it would be very bad.

    I am by no means an expert, but Crazy Glue dries extremely fast! Also, it spreads out very quickly -- if you get it on your hands, you might be glued to the machine! I would be afraid the crazy glue would damage any finish with which it came in contact. I think I would check with Glenn, because he is an expert!
