Attaching Porcelain Portraits
to an Existing Headstone

 

It is of EXTREME importance that you do not attempt to install the porcelain photo until the headstone is warm and dry. Also, you should select a time when the weather will be warm and dry for a few days to allow the VHB (Very High Bond) Tape sufficient time to adhere to the granite. Above 60 degrees Fahrenheit is preferable.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
· Porcelain Portrait with VHB (Very High Bond) Tape mounted to the back
· Rubbing Alcohol
· Razor Blade
· Scrap Cloth/Fabric
· Ruler/Measuring Tape
· Duct Tape/Electrical tape (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Clean the area of the headstone you want to place the photo with rubbing alcohol and let dry completely.

2. Measure and center the ceramic photo where you would like it to go. Measure carefully as removing and remounting the ceramic photo will lessen the holding power of the VHB Tape. If desired, you may use small pieces of duct tape or electrical tape to create place markers around the area where you will be placing the ceramic photo, just make sure the tape is will not be underneath the ceramic once installed.

3. Now that you are ready to place the porcelain portrait, peel back the backing on the VHB Tape covering the back of the picture. Then firmly press it against the headstone and hold it there for a minute. Remove duct tape/electrical tape markers if used.

4. Sit back & admire your work!
