Western Spinebill Leadlight Sticker by Serene Forest.

This cute little fella is a honeyeater found commonly in the forests of south-west Australia. His Aboriginal name is “booldjit”.

Each Serene Forest Leadlight Sticker is individually handmade. The stickers are designed and produced by Einiitd Taylor in her art studio located in the beautiful town of Margaret River in Western Australia. Einiitd lives in Margaret River with her husband and 3 children and is where she has lived most of her life. She enjoys surfing and bushwalks are where she finds inspiration for most of her designs. Serene Forest Leadlight Stickers started by originally learning the art of making Leadlight windows and small stained-glass hangings using a copper foiling technique. This method was very time consuming, so she converted her designs into a sticker format and the term ‘Leadlight Stickers’ was created. The stickers or ‘clings’ commonly named, are removable and reusable unlike traditional stickers. They can be used to decorate windows, glass sliding doors, water bottles, mirrors, or any non-porous surface. The stickers can be cleaned without being removed using warm water with a mind detergent. This product is not dishwasher safe, as any extreme heat can damage or melt the soft plastic nature of the stickers
Application (How to)
Firstly choose a clean and dry non-porous surface to display your leadlight sticker.  Carefully remove the sticker from the packaging, then place the smooth side of the sticker on your chosen surface. Providing you remove stickers with care, they can be repositioned numerous times.  When removing stickers to reposition, ensure not to overstretch in the process.
Recommendations
Serene Forest Stickers will cling to most surfaces that are smooth and non-porous.  Ideal surfaces are windows and sliding doors, tiles, and mirrors.  Sticker placement is not recommended on painted surfaces, plastic, brick or course textured areas.  Car windows are not recommended, as extreme heat inside a car may cause sticker to melt.  Likewise, If stickers are put on the outside of a car, they can be affected by the weather. (Excess sun, rain, and debris)
The ideal position for a leadlight sticker would be where it receives light, but not direct sunlight.  Certain colours may also fade when affected by direct sunlight for long periods (red being the main colour)
 
Maintenance
Windows can be cleaned in the usual way while stickers are attached. Ensure you dry sticker after completing your window clean, to avoid moisture damage.
If the sticker is attached to a glass water bottle or another mobile object, a mild detergent mix or plain water can also be used providing you also wipe dry afterwards.  If you are concerned about this cleaning method, you can always remove sticker before cleaning and then reapply afterward. I recommend removing the sticker and reapplying about once a year, as plastic may harden and mould to glass over time and become difficult to remove after several years. Reapplying will help avoid this happening.
