Apply a small thin coat of adhesive glue to the bottom of the lichen with a smooth palate knife, small paintbrush, or small spatula. Attach the lichen to your surface area by applying soft pressure with hand/fingers. If there is any excess glue residue, remove it by taking a small paintbrush with a small amount of water and slowly clean away excess glue from around the edges.
Wait approximately 1/2 hour and reapply soft pressure to lichen. If necessary, wait an additional 1/2 hour and reapply pressure or until lichen is permanently in place.
Works best at, or above 70 degrees as this helps the material become more pliable. Do not apply direct heat to the lichen as this will cause irreversible damage. Ensure that the surface area you are fastening the lichen to is clean and dry.
