Confused over decal / transfer process...

Albeit an aged and experienced modeller, I still angst over this process -

i.e if a Klear coat is put on for adhesion benefits and protecting the underlying surface, should I then put a Micro Set or Sol on, OR Mr Setter / Softener (as I have both)...?

then a Klear coat?

Or is it Klear, then transfer, then Klear, or what?


And how long between coats to avoid chemical re-actions, although I sometimes use a hairdryer to enhance the drying? Sometimes I get are-action which goes milky on the Klear.

Sorry if this is basic stuff ! Do certain transfers work best with certain softeners too?
