How to make a Papertole

Pansy and Ivy - PTC006 finished in a standard frame.


How do we do it?

A. Number the sheets from 1 to 4. The remaining sheet is the base sheet.

B. Remove pieces No. 7 & 9 from the Base sheet as shown in the instructions opposite. All kits marked with a (*) come with instructions. The instructions are a guide only so feel free to take away pieces or add extra layers from the waste sheets.


C. Seal all the sheets, except the Base Sheet, on the back by placing them face down on newspaper on a flat surface. Paint the back of the prints with Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish using a brush. The prints may curl as the moisture from the sealer penetrates the back layers of fibres of the prints, this is okay. Straighten out the paper and leave the prints to dry for about 15 minutes. Sealing the sheets is important as it stops the oil from the silicone seeping through to the top of the print.

D. Using spray adhesive or a glue stick, attach the Base Sheet to a backing board (ensure your backing board is thick cardboard and is larger than the print, as seen in the picture opposite. This will allow enough room to attach framing mat boards. Smooth the prints out with your fingers removing any air bubbles.
