Obtain the photograph picture you wish to use.
Place the adhesive double sided tape on the back side of the photograph. Use an object to burnish the back side of the photograph in order for the adhesive tape to adhere. This will cause the adhesive to transfer over to the photograph properly.
Now, take the photograph and cut it round using a circular cutter. Or cut to what ever shape you require using a scissors.
We then place the photograph onto the decorative china plate, wood, plastic or whatever you wish to use. Make sure that there is a border around the photograph so that the glaze does not overflow. When placing the photo onto the plate, we recommend that you peel of the top part of the photo first and eventually working down to the bottom. The photo with the adhesive on the back should first make contact with the top portion of the dish, then work down. This procedure is most used so that there will be no air pockets under the photograph once it is laid down. We also recommend that you burnish down the edges of the photograph once it has been laid down in order to seal the photograph to the plate. Since we are working with a liquid resin, burnishing the edges will prevent air bubbles from escaping from beneath while the process is in operation.
We then pour the Polydiam liquid glaze onto the plate. But, before doing this, make sure that the surface of the photograph is free of dust particles. Only a small amount of Polydiam resin is needed to cover the photo and its edges. It is recommended that you pour the resin directly onto the centre of the photograph and with a circular motion cover the remainder of the photograph. Once this is done, check for any dust particles or air bubbles. If any, use a syringe, toothpick or a hair dryer in order to get rid of it.
We now take the plate and place it into the Polydiam machine. (If appropriate, remove the post-exposure tray from the drawer before placing the glazing plate.)
Before turning the unit on, it is advisable to let the plate sit approximately 30-60 seconds for the glaze to settle.
Set the Timer for around 5 minutes. Switch ON. After exposure is complete, switch OFF and remove the finished product.
