                             Welcome to the Aarart Applique Tips

    We suggest that you consider your skill level and complexity of your creation.  

It may be advisable to hire a professional to mount your applique.  If your feel

you have the necessary skills, you will need the help of friends and family to

guide each applique as you mount them.  Best to arrange the party now!  

Remember to save the backing paper.

                                            Surface Preparation

    A smooth surface is best for applique.


    If you are planning to paint the surface, check with your paint retailer to ensure

you will leave enough curing time before applying your images.  If you are

planning to use multiple layers and colours of paint (sponge, spray or others)

check with your paint retailer for advice on suitability, timing and curing.  The

end result can be very effective.  If you apply your images too soon, you run the

risk of damaging your applique.

    If you are planning to work on an existing surface, try cleaning it with white

vinegar and clear water rinses.  Any existing film on the surface can effect your


    Try preparing your surface while your order is being printed and shipped to

you.   This will make the 3-4 week production and shipping time seem to go


                                           Before Mounting

    Organisation is a key for success.  We suggest you review your creation and

establish what images are mounted on top of the rest and on down to the bottom. 

Start a pile of your images with the top images first and then add each successive

level of images until you have the image at the bottom of your creation on the top

of your pile.  Now you can mount each image from the top to the bottom of your

pile.  Remember to save the backing paper!

                                             After Mounting

    The media your images are printed on is quite tough and can be washed using

mild dish soap and water on a soft cloth.  A clean soft cloth can be used in

rinsing  and a dry soft cloth for daubing the surface dry.  Consult your paint

retailer about cleaning.

    This is why you saved the backing paper.  Your applique can be remounted

several times so you can rearrange them, remove them, store them or sell or give

them to someone using the saved backing paper.
