1 large bulldog clip
1/4 inch ply (26cm wide x 42cm long)
Contemporary paper/wallpaper the same size as the board
a glue gun & glue sticks
Eggshell paint (in a colour of your choice)
Clear Spray Varnish
1.Begin by sealing your ply with watered down pva. This will prevent the eggshell sinking straight into the wood. It also prevents the spray mount from sinking in so that the beautiful paper you have chosen will stay in place.
2.Once the wood is sealed and dry you are ready to paint the back of your board with the eggshell you have selected. Make sure that it is evenly coated. Remember it is better to make multiple thin coats rather than one thick coat.
3.In a well ventilated space or outdoors spray an even coat of spray mount onto the non-painted side of the wood and the back of the paper. Lay the paper onto the board and press out from the centre any air bubbles.
4.Using your glue gun attach the back of your bulldog clip to your board. The glue sets almost instantly so they are ready to use almost immediately.
