Tips to create canvas art with vinyl decal
Plan the placement of your picture: Now first of all set your vinyl decal on the canvas as you want to display on your wall. It is not necessary to put the picture on the canvas by matching their centers. You can manage the picture accordingly if you want to highlight some of its parts.
Trim the decal: After placing the decal on the canvas you should trim its corners at 90 degrees and save its pieces which can be used later on to patch up its corners.
Apply the decal to the canvas: Before touching the adhesive part of the decal you should wash your hands thoroughly to bond them in a better way. While laying the decal on the canvas the center of the canvas should be on the top while the decal is face down, keeping all the corners of the canvas inside the corners cut by you. Now peel the backing of the decal either from the side or the top and apply it gently and carefully on the canvas. Now pull down the backing gradually. You can use plastic card to smooth the decal on the canvas in order to remove air bubbles.
Secure the sides: Now you should smooth the sides of the decal and use medium viscosity Starbond EM-150 superglue to secure its edges over the sides of the canvas. You can use the square pieces cut for the corners of the decal to place underneath the gaps on the edges to give your wall art a smoother look.
Thus your wall canvas art made from vinyl decal is complete to display wherever you want in your home with the help of medium viscosity Starbond EM-150 superglue. Using CA glue allows you to create wall art at very reasonable cost.
