Do not forget the corners. Dry paint hairdryer.

To isolate the folds go over them with a semi-dry brush or a contrasting color with a sponge.

It is not decorate the frame, three-dimensional elements will stir stick support!

From the transparent film (suitable film from the new strains, it is quite thick), cut out the fragment is identical to the window, but more than 1 cm. From all sides. Clay Moment glue film on the reverse side of the window.

For the aesthetics of the window to paste over the edge of any paper (from the inside).
