The Finishing Kit complete with GLUE. The kit includes instructions and everything you need to finish and hang an assembled puzzle: Foam glue brush, puzzle glue, 2 sheets of waxed paper, Foamboard strip, 2 metal hangers, wall hook & nail, 2 finishing aids, picture wire and 4 strips of black plastic edging.
1.) Assemble puzzle on waxed paper – or slide waxed paper under puzzle to protect table.
2.) Apply Puzzle Glue to the entire front of the puzzle with Foam Glue Brush – allow to dry completely.
3.) Repeat step 2.
4.) Carefully peel waxed paper from puzzle and discard.
5.) Place puzzle face down on new waxed paper.
6.) Apply a thin coat of Puzzle Glue to the back of the puzzle with the Foam Glue Brush.
7.) Slide each piece of Black Plastic Edging onto the puzzle starting with a long side – see below. Edging may be cut with heavy duty scissors or garden shears if puzzle dimensions are not exact. Overlapping the corners seems to work better than mitering the plastic.
8.) The last short piece of edging can be difficult – use the Finishing Aids by sliding them into the edging first and then sliding the puzzle between them – see below.
9.) Glue Foamboard Strip to back of puzzle near the top edge – weight down until completely dried.
10.) Push Metal Hangers into Foamboard Strip and attach picture wire (shorten if necessary).
11.) Using the Wall Hook & Nail, hang framed puzzle.
