Efex appliques in store now

Posted by Beverley McNaughton on

Have you heard of Efex appliques..... well they are perfect for bringing a bit of depth and class to an otherwise boring piece of furniture.

Efex Are Bendable

The only bendable moldings and appliques available today. Whilst there are other types of moldings and appliqués Until Efex they were not bendable. This means that they must either be applied to completely flat surface or have the gaps filled after application. They simply flex to fit any surface they’re applied to. They can also be stretched up to 2% to ensure a tight fit. No special tools are required beyond a pair of scissors or knife and a good contact cement.

So Simple To Use

Efex can be applied to almost any surface – wood, plaster, metal, glass, and terracotta. In New Zealand, they recommend using Holdfast Gorilla Clearbond Craft Glue, but there are many options. In Australia try a contact adhesive such as Selleys Kwik Grip Vertical Contact Adhesive

Apply a thin layer of the adhesive to back of the appliqué and to surface you’re attaching to. Once the adhesive is tacky to the touch (approximately 10-15 minutes), simply press the two surfaces together and it’s done! You can start finishing your piece once the appliqué is attached.

If you’re using a different brand make sure you check the manufacturer’s instructions, these may differ from brand to brand. Don’t use epoxy or PVA glues as they will not adhere.
