PREPARATION

1. Make sure the surface is smooth and clean

Remove any old paint or wallpaper that is coming off.

Clean the surface and apply filler where necessary. If the surface is porous, it should be primed before hanging the wall mural. Porous surfaces include skimmed walls, walls with old wallpaper, particle board or similar.

You should also prime the surface if it has bright colours that could show through the wall mural.

HANGING

1. Check the wall mural

Before hanging, make sure no panels are missing and none have any defects or damage. The panels are numbered at the top in the order they should be hung. Hang from left to right.

2. Make sure the panels are hung straight

It is vital that the first panel is hung straight. It is a good idea to draw vertical markings one panel width in from the corner using a spirit level, a measuring tool and a pencil. Use the markings as a guide to hang the first panel.

Make sure the markings are faint so they don’t show through the wall mural.

3. Hang the panels

Begin by gently removing backing paper for Walltex.

Take care to press the panels together firmly at the seams – use a seam roller for the best results. Be careful to match up the pattern with the next panel.

Note: Avoid harsh folds as this may cause cracks in the print.

4. Smooth down the panels from ceiling to floor

Use your squeegie or wallpaper brush, starting from the middle and smoothing out towards the edges.

5. Trim off any excess material

Once all the panels have been hung, trim off any excess material using a trim guide and a sharp knife.

6. Wait 24 hours to see the finished product.
