1. Thoroughly wash the surface you're going to be Sinkadoodling. Then rinse it completely,
making sure there are no chemical residues remaining from your cleaning product.
2. Using a squeegee (or a credit card), burnish your Sinkadoodles from center to outer edges, just to make sure no air bubbles have accumulated in shipping.
3. If necessary, cut out the portion of the Sinkadoodle you will be applying first. Cut away excess paper/plastic around design. This is particularly helpful when applying it to a curved surface.
4. Peel off the paper backing.
5. Spray the Sinkadoodle with a light mist of the soapy water. You spray the side that used to have the paper backing on it. If you are confident, you can put it on dry for much quicker, easier results. Squeegee immediately after placement.
6. Place the Sinkadoodle where you want it. As long as it is wet, you can slide it around until you have it lined up.
7. While holding it in place, burnish it from the center towards the outer edges making sure to push out the water and air bubbles. If it is slipping around too much to hold it in place, then let it sit for 30 minutes or more so it starts to take hold. Then burnish it down tight. It can take longer to take hold if the ceramic or porcelain is cold. You don't want it hot, just comfortable room temperature.
8. Wait 1 1/2 hours.
9. Burnish it once more for luck, then remove the carrier sheet slowly. If you see something starting to pull up with the carrier sheet, just push it back into place with your thumb or finger.
10. The adhesive holding your Sinkadoodle will grow stronger and stronger over the next 24 hours.
