- Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth.

- The design on kite needs to be covered with silver mylar. Spray uncovered side with an even coat of Fast Grab™ Tacky Spray™ following label instructions. Place a sheet of mylar, with straight edge along center spine of kite, over sprayed surface and smooth with fingers. Cut smaller sections of mylar to fit remainder of side, making sure entire surface is covered.
