The love your wall needs in 4 simple steps
1. Prepare your paper
Our medium paper option is printed on a roll that is divided into 45cm wide strips that are helpfully numbered on each strip. Our heavy paper also comes on a roll divided into numbered strips that are of an equal width, up to 120cm.
Find the number on the strip and lay out in order so you are ready to install. Remember - we have made allowances for trimming top and bottom to compensate for uneven walls. Ensuring your wall surface is smooth and free of imperfections will make your mural look its best.
2. Place the first panel
Apply a pre-mixed wallpaper adhesive directly to the wall. Hang the first length, working from top to bottom, and allowing the paper to fall naturally. Smooth over with a soft brush to ensure no air bubbles remain underneath. Check carefully for correct fit in key image areas (eye level and focal points) before top and bottom trimming, and reposition if necessary.
3. Perfect your panels
For our medium paper, hang the panels edge to edge (there is no overlap), in a butt join. Visually match the image at the join and adjust the position until the design completely matches. Smooth out with a soft brush. Use a seam roller to ensure the product is well bonded at the joins and gently wipe away any excess paste with a dry cloth or slightly dampened cloth. Trim away any excess paper at the top and bottom of each drop using a knife and a straight edge. For our heavy paper, your mural is printed with a 20mm overlap. Use the black crop mark at the top and bottom as a guide to overlap the panel onto the first. Visually match the image at the join and smooth out.
4. Repeat to complete
Continue to hang each subsequent panel using the method described above until the mural is complete. Carefully clean any adhesive or residue with warm water and a sponge, then step back and admire your new mural. What a beauty!
