Until my shoulder heals, I’ll just be tinkering with small things that aren’t painful.
I’m glad I enjoy working with vinyl projects, or I’d really be going batty.
This is a window project I did several years ago. I had it in storage for a long time. It’s been at the shop in the booth for a few months now. I brought it home earlier this week and decided it needed a change. The appliques are Tatouage.
I tried to remove the Tatouage with a razor blade. It wasn’t budging!
I brought out the big guns. I squirted some un-du sticker, tape and label remover on the window, and used the razor blade to scrape it right off.
Then I cleaned the window with my Fish Foam Window Cleaner.
I am applying vinyl, and I wanted to make sure all of the un-du was gone.
I’ve seen this before, but pinned it recently and thought it would be perfect for this window.
I thought I’d show you how I apply vinyl. I use the transfer paper to sort of stick the vinyl in place. You can see that it is larger than the vinyl paper, and is sticking to the window.
I remove the vinyl completely from the slick paper, with the transfer paper acting as a hinge.
I remove the slick paper, and prepare to lay the vinyl onto the glass.
After laying the vinyl on the glass, I start removing the transfer paper by laying it back on itself.
The vinyl is sticking easily to the clean glass.
The window looks so much better now with the updated vinyl replacing the Tatouage.

The fish foam and the un-du were both sent to me to try out a long time ago. Both products work great, and I like to let you know what works when I use it. All opinions are my own. This is NOT a paid post. 🙂
