Installation for ceramic pictures is typically very simple. But we strongly recommend you read this guide before you make your attempt (and keep it handy as you work).
Your ceramic picture should be installed on a smooth, polished surface for proper bonding to take place. It is important that the temperature where you're working be more than 60 degrees and that there be no water in the air on area where you are installing the picture. You should make sure you have the following available as you work: rubbing alcohol, a roll of paper towels, a ruler, a pencil, measuring tape, white caulk and, of course, the picture. Use the alcohol and paper towel to clean the area where you intend to place the picture, and you're about ready to begin. Before you dive right into the installation, however, be sure to hold the picture in the place you intend to install it. Examine it closely to make sure you like the location. Moving the picture once it has been installed can be very difficult, maybe even impossible.
Installation of Memorial Picture:
Use these steps to install your ceramic picture.
Use a measuring tape and pencil to mark the center point of the spot where you intend to install the picture.
Measure the width and height of the picture.
Divide the width and height into two.
From the center point you marked use the divided width and height dimensions to mark the exact dimensions of the spot where the picture will be installed.
Place the picture in the spot you have marked to be sure your markings are exact.
Remove the tape (marked "Tape") from the back of the picture. The tape covers the whole back of the whole picture and needs to be removed completly (careful the tape is almost invisible to the eye). The tape is like a film on a band aid; just rub your finger back and forth over the edge of the picture to start removing the film. The tape is industrial grade and made by 3M.
Line the picture up with your markings, and firmly press it to the surface. Hold it very firmly for about 2 minutes, and your picture will be installed.
Run a small beat of sealant (Wal Mart or Home Depot) around the picture to keep the moisture out and make it look better. Please Note: This is a permanent bond.
