It can be replaced with methyl Wallpaper glue or polyester varnish.
Measure the window sill. Please note that you will need to paste over the side of his hand. It is desirable to paste over the entire surface of one sheet, but it turns out not always. Special care is required in the case of corners and edges, especially if the latter have the figure shape.
Roll the laminated film face down on a horizontal surface. Film with a paper layer, usually have an inch grid, and it makes life much easier in the wizard. The area of the window silland not very large, so cut the tape on the table or on a big Board. Draw a rectangle with sides equal to the length and width of the window silland, plus 2-3 cm.

To paste the rounded end, peel off the paper and the film run a normal household Hairdryer. Then it is easy to take the desired shape. Fold the corners and press down firmly. The vertical ends of the laminate in exactly the same way as a horizontal surface.
