Hello, today I will introduce you to vinyl project fail. It was my first attempt at vinyl decals. I used rub on quotes before, but nothing this elaborate. The project started out good-I took a picture I found at the local Recycling plant and spray painted it turquoise. Since I don't have a fancy silhoutte or a thing of the sort, I ordered my decal online. Paid quite a bit of money for it, too. I figured it an investment for our front door for the years to come. In the picture above you can see the beautiful decal before I attempted to transfer it.
And here is the failed decal project. The vinyl stuck to the front sheet instead of peeling of the back sheet and onto the painting. I ended up manually removing the letters and sticking them onto the painting. I had to remove all the decor around the initial, because it looked so bad. This is what I'm left with-buhu, yes, I did cry. I'm thinking of embellishing it with some fabric flowers. I also had to retouch the blue and I need to get the paint of the letters. All in all very disappointing. I'm not sure if I will give vinyl another try, even though it looks great. What are your thoughts or recommendations?
