Wall Preparation

Do I need to prepare my walls before applying Wall Art?

The wall surface should be:

  • Flat
  • Clean
  • Dry
  • Free of mildew, grease, or other stains

If the paint is old or flaking, then preparing the surface and painting it correctly is highly recommended. Old wallpaper and adhesive should be removed by sanding, or adhesive remover and primer should be applied to the clean, smooth wall surface prior to application. Applying a Wall Covering or Poster to paneling, or wall currently covered with wallpaper, is not recommended.

Do I need special tools to apply Wall Art?

Below is a list of tools recommended for the application of Wall Covering.

  • Smoothing tool such as a squeegee or even just a credit card.
  • Stanley Knife
  • Sponge
  • Bucket
  • Spray bottle
  • Drop cloth
  • Tape measure
  • Ladder

Remember to use all tools as per manufacturer’s safety instructions.

Are there any tricks to papering around doors and windows when installing a Wall Covering?

There are some tricks to applying your project. If the panel covers a portion of wall with a door, window, or fixture:
1. Use a straight edge to push the panel flush against the wall or the obstruction.
2. Use a utility knife to cut away excess material around the object leaving enough material that it hangs just slightly over the obstruction.
3. Use a flathead screwdriver or other flat tool to tuck the excess material behind the obstruction.

What is the best starting point to begin a Wall Covering installation?

Panel numbers are printed at the bottom of each strip. Apply the panels in numerical order following the wetting and booking process described in the installation instructions included in the product package.

What is the “Distance A” mentioned on the instructions? How can I measure it?

Distance A is the distance from the edge to the middle of the wall, and is where the starting line should be plumbed. If the project settings are set as “Overlap”, then the first panels should be positioned in the following way:

  • Odd number of panels: Align the plumbing line with the center of the first panel
  • Even number of panels: Place the edge of the first panel on the vertical line


How do I remove air bubbles after application?

While it is important to use a damp sponge to remove bubbles during the initial application, there’s no need to worry about clearing smaller bubbles at this time. After 15 minutes, smooth out any remaining large bubbles using a smoothing tool. Bubbles that are smaller than a quarter will dissipate as the wall covering sets.

2. Once the wall art is wet, peel it from the wall (if it sticks use additional water).
3. Clean off the residual paste with a sponge and water.
