You know, it is well worth a try. I have been post spraying the back with white. If you get in a hurry and do heavier coats the white can creep through the little pores making some very tiny specks of white on the decal (not so bad, but not perfection. I have often thought what if you treated a second sheet, just white, and pre-mounted the tissue decals to it before cutting the decal out. Only issues would be a good wrinkle free bond that doesn't delaminate upon final mounting.
