- 4 pieces of StyleTechCraft’s transparent glitter film with plotted graphic (bird)
- 1 piece of matte black film with plotted graphic (bird)
- 1 sheet of premask
- 1 sheet of poly
- Picking tool
- Hummingbird Template
Note: Our vinyl will stick to most clean surfaces. However, StyleTech’s Transparent Glitter is also permanent, so, please only apply this bird where you want to see it for a while.
The matte black bird will be the base. Using a picking tool, you will need to remove all the inside pieces of the bird along with the surrounding material leaving only the outline.
After you have removed all the inside pieces of the bird, you have a blank canvas to add your color transparent glitter pieces.
We have included four different colors for you to choose from. You can use all of the colors or just a few; it is entirely up to you!
Using your picking tool, weed the material from around the colored birds that you want to use, leaving only the interior pieces.
Using your picking tool, remove a piece from the TG bird and place that piece in the same spot on the matte black base.
Continue these steps until you have filled in all of the empty spots of the matte black bird.
After you have completed your bird, take the sheet of transfer tape and, starting from the top, gently place the transfer tape directly on top of the bird.
Use the squeegee to press the transfer tape down fully on the bird.
To transfer the bird to its new home, starting at one corner, lift the transfer tape up, pulling the transfer tape and completed bird with it. Gently place your bird where you would like it to live.
Once it is pressed down, slowly remove the transfer tape from the bird and you have a finished project.
