Installing Mural

Installing Mural

These simple 8 steps and illustrations provided will help you understand the entire installing and pasting process of the wallpaper along with some pro tips. If you are unsure of any of these steps, please get in touch with our customer care team who will be more than happy to help you out.

For general preparation, use an old backing paper from the wall surface. Make sure the surface in which the mural will be stuck is smooth, clean, dry in-depth and is painted evenly.

Double-check whether the surface is clean and has no moisture damage or structural problems such as cracks. It should be free of dust, dirt, grease, ink stains, oil. Any of these can prevent the mural from sticking to the surface.  Although it is not necessary, you can use lining paper underneath your mural.

Emulsion Paint: No further preparation needed.

Penetrable Surface ( plaster, cement render): Ensure that the old plaster is firm and free of mould. The new plaster needs to be dry thoroughly. Prime the surface with a PVA based primer or emulsion paint and allow it to dry before pasting the mural.

Non-Penetrable surface (glass, glass paint): No further preparation needed.

Tools

Soft brush for smoothing

Sharp knife (Stanley/craft )

Pasting brush or roller

Pasting mixed adhesive*

Plumb line/spirit level

Seam roller

Scissors

Straight edge / ruler

 

*Use pre-mixed ‘paste on the wall’ paste only, if available you can use nonwoven paste. However, the powered adhesive does not provide a strong enough hold.

01.

Unroll and separate each drop as shown in the illustration. Identify and arrange it in proper pasting order on the floor. Each drop is numbered in the pasting order from left to right (starting with ‘C1’)

Please note: If you have ordered multiple murals they may be rolled together.

All our murals come with a white border ensuring no damage is caused during the transit. Trim away this white border from the left and right side of the panel only. You don’t have to be completely accurate as each edge will be overlapped and trimmed again later in the process. Arrange the panels in the correct pasting order to check the placing before installing it. If you notice any inconsistencies within the print, please do not install. Our customer service team can then further assist you with the same.
Under no circumstances can we compensate installation fees from third parties.

02.

Pro tip: The key is to ensure that the first drop is accurately pasted properly on the wall which then makes it easier for the other drops to follow respectively.

You can use a leveller (plumb line or spirit level) to guarantee a perfect levelling of your first drop.

 

 Using a brush or a roller, evenly apply a thin layer of wallpaper paste directly to the wall surface.

03.

Paste the first drop on your wall starting from the top respectively. Carefully ease away any bubbles or ripples using a soft brush or microfibre cloth.

 

IMPORTANT: Do not pull or stretch the fabric during the installation. Start pasting from the top and allow the wallpaper to fall naturally, taking particular care to avoid any kind of damage on the printed surface.

04.

When pasting multiple drops: Paste the panel edge to edge (don’t overlap), in a butt-join. Visually match the image at the join and adjust the position until the design completely matches. Firmly butt the panels, then smooth out with a soft brush.

 

Use a seam roller to ensure the product is well bonded at the joins and then gently wipe away any excess paste.

 

Trim any excess paper at the top and bottom of each drop using a knife and a straight edge.

05.

Continue the previous steps for each drop until all of them are installed. Trim any excess.

Allow it to dry at room temperature, ensuring proper ventilation.
Sit back and enjoy your hard work!

Yay! adore it all you want!!
