Step 1: Separate SikaQuick Patch Components

Using a pair of scissors, cut a corner of the "B" component large enough to pour the entire contents into a plastic tub. Next, cut a corner of the liquid component "A" and pour it into a separate plastic tub.

Tip: Mix in small cups for more manageable batches.

Step 2: Mixing

Mixing the 2 components in smaller cups makes it easier to pour into the small letter molds.

Step 3: Sanding

The letters cured overnight and easily popped out of the silicone mold in 24 hours. Make sure to sand each letter for a smooth finish, wash, and let air dry.

Note: The silicone really slows down the curing process.

Step 4: Bonding

With a caulk gun dispense SikaBond Construction Adhesive onto a plate. Using craft sticks apply a small amount of construction adhesive to the bottom of each letter. Place them on the wooden base.
