Step 1: Make sure your puzzle is on a hard, flat surface. The glue won’t seep through to the other side but you do want to get it close to the edges. You can put down a tarp or trash bag underneath if you’re not one to colour inside the lines :)
Step 2: Using your tube of JIGGY puzzle glue, create a thick line of glue along one side of the puzzle.
Step 3: Use the included gold straight edge to spread the glue from one side to the other, with enough pressure to get the glue in between the pieces and avoid pooling.
Step 4: Continue spreading the glue in long strokes, from each side, until the puzzle is covered. The glue works by sealing between the pieces, so for best results, avoid leaving a thick layer on the surface. Make sure it's in between the pieces and remove any excess.
Step 5: Allow to dry for 12-24 hours.
TA-DA! You’re ready to mat, frame and hang that beauty, or keep on your coffee table and show it off!
About The Brand: 5 years ago, Kaylin was working around the clock at an early startup and fell in love with jigsaw puzzles as her nightly meditation. She was doing one every week and the stress relief was great, but the designs were outdated and uninspired. She started dreaming up a puzzle that would be beautiful for both the doing and the decorating, that would look good before, during and after completion. She knew she wanted to support and highlight the work of amazing female artists and after a year of curating the art, reimagining and designing the packaging, JIGGY was born!
