  • The first thing to do is to dust off the elements, or even to leach them.
  • In the latter case, let it dry.

  • Then apply a layer of Bondex (anti-worm) or matte varnish.
  • Brush with white acrylic paint or diluted color in a little water.

  • Depending on the elements, to maintain the photo, it may be necessary to place it on a background cardboard and fix it with cloth tape or two nails folded down.

  • If the frame is made with planks, bevel with a jigsaw and join wood glue on plywood of the same size.

  • For the molded element, cut the photo to the exact dimension.
