• If your stickers are too sticky, stick them to the back of your hand before using them as a mask. The oils in your skin will remove some of the adhesive, yet still leave it sticky enough to work as a temporary mask.
• After applying the ink over the surface, wait a few minutes to make sure it is completely dry before lifting your letter stickers. Use the point of a craft knife to help you lift each sticker without smudging your work.
