    I re-silvered my clock dial and used a water slide transfer for the dial face. In several spots right along the outside edge of the dial, the transfer is beginning to roll up a little bit. This edge will obviously end up under the bezel flange but I'm looking for advise on what to use to stick it down or what you recommend that I do. Outside of that, I am very pleased with the outcome. Thanks!!

    Just an update, in case anyone runs into the issue identified in the previous post. I ultimately decided to use my wife's clear fingernail polish on the edges of the dial to roll the edges of the water slide transfer onto. Worked very well and is transparent. Obviously, I could have used some adhesive but I was a bit concerned about potential future yellowing/discoloration.

    That sounds like a good fix. Thanks for sharing this tip.
