STEP 1: PREPARING YOUR WALL
The wall floor must be clean, dry, structurally sound, free of mold, grease, or other stains, and free of imperfections for excellent overall performance and complete removal during the renovation.
To practice on drywall For high-quality results, practice on a wall floor that has been painted with a layer of construction primer and a layer of latex paint (note: this is typical of recent construction; a wall that has been painted with an unmarried primer) Paint or a semi-gloss or semi-gloss finish is acceptable). The wall floor must be clean, clean, and free of particles or debris.
Painted partition walls must be primed, cleaned, and free of particles. Check the bottom of the wall to determine the extent to which the paint has adhered. If the paint is old, damaged, or peeling, it is recommended that you apply a primer.
To practice on a wall that is protected from wallpaper, all old wallpaper must be removed last in addition to the old adhesive (remove with an abrasive or adhesive remover). implemented on the wall floor, it is clean, clean, and without the old glue. For practicing on blackboards. Furthermore, for a clean floor, all grooves must be filled and then protected with an adhesive primer. For practicing on a wall that is currently protected by wallpaper. Not recommended.
STEP 2: PREPARE THE WORK AREA
Place easy-to-install curtains opposite the wall to catch water droplets. Moreover, the panels could be saturated at one point in the installation and water could leak out. Moreover, you may even want to lay the panels on an easy-to-assemble floor. of the adhesive, so we recommend a new or easily removable cloth.
Combine 2 matching 3032-inch wallpaper trays (commonly found at hardware stores) by cutting a portion of each tray and gluing together to create an adjoining elongated tray with water. However, as an alternative to immersing the panels in water, a spray wallpaper paste activator can also be used.
STEP 3: CREATE A GUIDE (OPTIONAL)
Attach a flat guide to the wall as you would if you were to hang a picture frame or poster. Thus, use it as a starting point for the first panel.
STEP 4 PLACE THE FIRST PANEL IN THE WALLPAPER TRAY Determine which the main panel to install. The wall can be configured from left to right or right to left. panel rolled on the inside revealing the lace look.
Moreover, roll wallpaper completely immerses in water for 10-15 seconds to remove sparks from the adhesive. Remove the roll by slowly pulling the main part up and out of the tray. As an alternative to immersing the panels in water, a spray wallpaper paste activator can also be used.
STEP 4: RESERVE THE BOARD
“Reserve” the wallpaper by laying it on the glued surface, then fold the glue towards yourself for about 1 minute (prevent the paper from creasing during the reservation)
Note: This product hardly expands in water; For best results, soak each panel the same amount of time and reserve for the mural installation.
STEP 5: ATTACHING FIRST PANELS TO THE WALL
Moreover, unfold the top half of the wallpaper, leaving the bottom half of the wallpaper reserved, and place the bare adhesive part of the climax of the wallpaper on the wall. Furthermore, when you are satisfied with the preliminary positioning, spread the wallpaper to reveal the final adhesive surface. Carefully lower and pull out with a damp sponge or smoothing brush. Start in the middle of the board and smooth down towards the edges. Thus, when placing it, be careful not to stretch the plate. Only soft brushstrokes are crucial for smoothing. the panel, no longer follow excessive pressure.
Tip: It doesn’t get any easier now: bubbles smaller than the scale of a US. The space is exhausted because the wall protection is attached
STEP 6: APPLY FOR ADDITIONAL PLATES
Each aditional plate is created by aligning it with the previous one. Thus, each panel has approximately 1/2 inch of overlap for ease of lining.
STEP 7: (OPTIONAL) OVERLAP SEALING ROLLER
Removes excess paste/moisture that can be removed with the sponge
STEP 8: (OPTIONAL) DOUBLE CUT OVERLAP SEAMS
Furthermore, for a more delicate look with much fewer protruding seams. You can trim the extra fabric that will overlap each panel. This technique should be performed while the panels are still wet.
Thus, beginning in the tip area, an aspect is immediately in the middle of the overlap of the two panels. Use a sharp razor blade to make a single cut through each layer of the overlap. Furthermore, remove the outer strip of the extra fabric. Then lift the edge of the panel and remove the last of the excess fabric from the bottom of the mural installation.
