Prepare the wall where you want to put the Wallpaper or Wall mural. The surface must be dry, clean and free of grease.
The material may cover small imperfections in the wall. However if there are deep cracks/grooves before wallpapering, they should be filled and smoothed. It is also necessary to remove any leftover residue from previous wallpapers/wall murals.
Prepare the glue, mix the 150g glue pack with 4-5 liters of water, stir continuously. This will produce an adequate amount of paste for 25 m2. Let the mixture stand for 5-10 minutes and then strir vigorously before applying.
* Due to the drying process of the glue, it is not recommended to apply wallpapers in rooms with low humidity and with temperatures of below 10ºC . The optimal room temperature during the application and drying process is between 18-21ºC
With a level and a ruler, mark vertical straight lines on the wall every 50cm. These lines will be where you apply the rolls of wallpaper or wall murals.
If there is a window in the wall you wish to apply the wallpaper on, we advise to start applying from the window frame and then go along the wall.
There are 2 different options for applying the glue -
1. With a brush, apply a thin layer of glue on the wall. This can be wider than the 50cm roll.
2. Starting from the center and working outwards, apply the glue onto the paper. Leave for a few minutes to dampeneping, ensuring to keep the glued bits in contact with each other (glue with glue), do this by folding the ends of the paper together.
Next, place the top end of the roll onto the wall. Brush from the center, to the sides.
Check to see if the wallpaper is aligned with the marking made on the wall previously. If not aligned, gently slide the roll across to the corret position.
Using the brush, press the wallpaper gently to remove any air bubbles. Make circular motions, starting from the top and working your way down. If you applied the glue to the wall then be careful to not get any glue on the brush.
Repeat these steps, making sure to align the edges.
If there is excess glue this can be removed wth a damp sponge or cloth.
Ensure that the wall paper or mural is flat against the entire wall.
Use the roller to smooth over the surface once more. Once the wallpaper has been applied, small bubbles may be visible. These will disapear over the next few days.
During the first few days after application it is important that the room temperaure remains constant, and remains above 10ºC. Avoid excessive heating of the room in which the wallpaper has been applied.
