ADDING AN EFEX DECORATIVE APPLIQUÉ TO YOUR PROJECT

Efex can be applied to almost any surface, wood, plaster, metal, glass, terracotta and so much more. Simply apply contact cement glue such as H2 Contact Adhesive  to the back of the appliqué and to the surface you’re attaching it to. Press the two surfaces together, when the glue has dried you can start your project!

Application

Step 1. Trace the outline of your Efex with a pencil or chalk onto your project.

Step 2. To glue your Efex we recommend a contact cement adhesive  Brush the glue on the backside of the Efex and on the surface where you will be attaching it to. You do not need a thick coating of glue.

Step 3. Once you have applied the glue you will need to wait for dry; this can take around 15 minutes depending on application and temperature. Gluing the Efex to your project while the glue is still tacky will cause problems with its bonding to your project. For best results only apply once the glue is dry.

Step 4. When the glue is dry, carefully press the Efex onto the surface making sure all the edges are in contact with the glue.

Give the Efex 1-2 hours before applying paint or stain, it’s that easy!
