Gorilla Tape works on ANYTHING. Super aggressive adhesive. Another trick is to use a fender washer and screw the pattern right through a few of the mounting holes you're going to use anyway to hold the pattern.
It's a little tricky, but also using a hot melt glue gun on brick works well and the glue will just peel of the brick when done. Do a test run on this method BEFORE trying on the job site. I wouldn't use this on EFIS.
Hope this helps. When all else fails use a big booger!
After having an installation company for 40 yrs. (now retired, don't miss winter) We used lots and a good quality duct tape, where the mounting holes were in the letters on the pattern we used lags, screws etc with fender washers. If windy on dri-vit (foam with a concrete coating) we would use two different drills and quickly mark the mounting holes with a small bit and the electrical with the large. Remove the pattern and then finish drilling the wall. We have used the coro-plast method many times, We would buy coro-plast when it was on sale or buy defective sheets from our supplier. Thin masonite works well too and can be used for multiple installs of the same sign as long as it was cut from the same files on the computer.
In wind a paper pattern alone, not a good idea, but if any rips or large holeS occur they must be taped up right away, nothing worse as too lose your pattern before your job is finished.
In the past have used the carbon paper from the neon bending days and traced my letters and mounting holes onto the coro-plast, useful on wet days.
