If you’re going to be working on the dining room table remember to protect the surface with a cutting board or something similar
Once you have the film in place on the edge it won’t move around so carefully get hold of the backing paper and pull gently with one hand while firmly smoothing the top of the film down with the other hand, always moving from side to side.
The idea is to remove the backing paper and smooth the film down as you go. This enables you to check that the film is going down smoothly minimising the risk of rest of the film getting stuck down where you don’t want it to. It’s worth taking this bit very slowly or getting help until you are confident with what you are doing. It’s easy once you get the hang of it. If you make a mistake you can pull the film off and start again (unless you are sticking to paper or cardboard).
