4. Stick figures


In the meantime, we can glue the selected figures onto the rice nails. We have used NOCH temporary glue here, so that we can also exchange the figures. To do this, apply the glue to the rice nail. Let it dry briefly until the glue becomes transparent. Attach the model and remove it as often as you like.

5. Attaching pictures to the picture fram


Now you can attach the instant pictures anywhere on the picture frame with the tacks. Simply pierce the cork as you would a pinboard.
