We've recently had an upsurge in diamond dot paintings. I bought one today and we mounted it in the heat press before it was started. The stickiness seems to not be affected. Has anyone tried mounting them after they have the gems on them? I'm going to complete this and we'll try it. Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to handle these things? They are kind of.... crafty, so people don't want to spend a lot on them but we have to stretch or mount them or they look horrible.
