Enchanted Falls Oval

Wayne 30 May 2019

Modern day contact paper doesn't have nearly enough sticking power, no matter how hard you try there will be little bubbles on the edge and paint will drip. Use a baby wipe to clean your edges after removing the contact paper.
Happy painting.

Same thing with my experience with contact paper!

I did this one...mine totally sepia.... You paint beautiful trees😉

Lovely painting! I can't wait to have a go. I haven't done an oval yet but I do know a bit about contact paper as I have used it in the past for decorating dolls houses. To make it stick better after placing it, I ran a hairdryer over it and it worked pretty well.

Great job, really nice. A word of advice if I may... there are many, many brands of contact paper available, many of which are not worth fooling with for this type of use. Look around a bit, likely at Lowe's or the like and find the actual "Contact" brand. (www.contactbrand.com). It not only solves your bleeding issue it sticks very well, is reasonably priced and the backing is a grid pattern for easier cutting. The result of a ton of research and trial & error. :-) FYI I haven't tried the hair dryer thing but it sounds plausible also.

very good painting,i love it,well done!

Thank you everyone!
