11. Q-tip with water clean-up around edges

Use a Q-tip with plain old water to clean up the repair by taking away some of the dried glue away from the outer edges. I say edges—because you don’t necessarily want to scrub away all of the glue, especially in the center, where the bonding is taking place. You want to be gentle and take your time for the glue to dissolve, but don’t over work it. It’s also important to employ a side-to-side motion, without pressing down. As you can see, this will wrinkle the tissue where you rub with the water. That’s OK. When finished, you will set aside your masterpiece to dry, and because typically wet tissue will shrink when it dries, the area in question should tighten back to where it was initially.
