Build


Adding the Background

The second build step is to add the printed background image to the frame back panel.

To perform this step, you will need the following items:

  • Fast Bonding PVA Glue
  • A small art-style paint brush
  • A clean cloth, such as a tea towel
  • A box or crate containing a weight of around 15kg (30lbs), such as heavy books

I used Selleys® Interior QuickSet Aquadhere® PVA Glue, which was readily available from my local home hardware store.

Once you have these items, proceed with the following instructions:

  1. Coat the front-side of the back panel with a layer of Fast Bonding PVA Glue using a small paint brush.

  2. Place the printed background image over the back panel and press down firmly, adjusting and centring the printed background as necessary.

  3. Place the back panel face down on a clean cloth and evenly distribute weight over the back panel to form a simple press. I used a crate with 16kg (35lbs) of books and magazines, which worked extremely well.

    Allow at least 30 minutes drying time before proceeding to the next build step.

    Check the directions on your glue for the recommended time before working with bonded objects.

  4. Wash the paint brush you used to apply the glue!

You are now ready to begin Adding the Mounting Stands.
