Adhesive Spray

I used adhesive spray for this project. This gives a flat kind of look to the project.

(NOTE: Open the window and cover the workspace whilst using this. The spray smells really strong and even though I had a A3 pad covering my workspace it still got everywhere lol).

The adhesive spray that was used for this project is not showing online but it was purchased from Hobbycraft instore and it is called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’

Adhesive Foam Pads (optional between layers for a 3D effect)

(NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them). Link:
