Hanging instructions for our paste the wall product.
Your wallpaper mural comes in panels. We make every effort to deliver a top quality product in perfect condition, by applying strict quality control procedures. Before applying paste, lay out your mural from www.wallmurals.ie to ensure that you are happy with the print and colour match and that it fits together correctly – Please note all joining edges are printed with an approximate 6mm overlap. If any defects are found please contact your supplier immediately. We do not offer exchanges or refunds once you have hung any part of your mural. Wallmurals.ie takes no responsibility for any damage caused to your mural after it has been delivered or during hanging. INSTALLING THE PANELS Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the order of panel installation. Do not wait too long between installation of each panel or the panel designs will not line up correctly. Be prepared to proceed with each panel until the job is done before taking a break. Since the placement of the first panel determines the overall look of the finished mural, take extra time and care to place it accurately. To mark the position of the first panel, draw vertical lines on the wall using a pencil, a level and a plumb line. INSTRUCTIONS 1. Select panel number 1 2. Lay panel face down on a flat surface. Apply the wallpaper paste evenly to the back of the panel, allow the paste to soak for 1 – 2 minutes, do not lay the pasted sheets on top of each other and do not fold the pasted panel. It is very important to take extra care to make sure paste is applied to the edges. Try not to get paste on the printed side, apply the panel on to the wall using a soft cloth. Work from top to bottom and from left to right taking extra care not to overwork each panel. If one of the panels gets too wet or overworked by repositioning, it will stretch and make lining up the pattern most difficult. 3. Carefully remove excess paste from the front of the mural using a soft cloth. Too much rubbing or cleaning will remove the ink from the paper. 4. Repeat steps for remaining panels , following the printed guidelines on each panel overlap all joining edges by approximately 6mm, this prevents the seams from showing after they dry. It is common for each panel of a wet mural to be 1.25cm larger than a dry panel of the mural as each panel expands once paste is applied. 5. Trim the excess edges carefully after the paper has dried. FAQs I have put up the top panels. Why are the bottom panels smaller? When you received your Walltastic mural all panels were the same size, paste has been applied to the top panels which have now expanded and once paste is applied to the bottom panels these will expand too and match the top panels which you have already installed. Why do I get air bubbles and creases in my wallpaper, even when I’ve smoothed it out? Bubbles can be caused by uneven smoothing. If you are still hanging the wallpaper and can see a bubble forming, simply lift the wallpaper just beyond the bubble & re-smooth over. If a bubble is identified after drying it is likely to be worsened by pricking or slicing with a needle or knife, as when attempting to smooth over, the slightly stretched section of wallpaper may not shrink back and as a result will cause creasing. Another cause of bubbles is if not enough paste has been used. Why have the panels shrunk back at the edges and the pattern no longer aligns? Shrinking occurs when the wallpaper does not adhere sufficiently to the wall before the wallpaper paste dries. Most wallpapers expand when paste is applied. If the wallpaper is not adhered to the wall properly or if it is over-stretched the wallpaper will start to shrink back as it dries.

Start by dividing the lengths as indicated by the cutting symbols. Lay the lengths, with the label facing upwards, in numerical order starting with length number 1. Make sure you have all the lengths and that none of them are defective or damaged. 2–4. Our wall murals are always hanged from the left to the right, start with the left corner of your wall. The lengths are numbered in hanging order from left to right. The lengths should be hung edge to edge without any overlapping. It is essential that the first length is vertically straight. (Tip: Make a pencil mark one wallpaper width from the left near the ceiling. Hold a plumb line on the mark and draw a vertical line down the wall. Then line up your first length of wallpaper with the pencil line.) 5–7. Roll the paste straight onto the wall. Be sure to evenly cover the entire surface. If you miss a spot, this will cause the wall mural to bubble. Paste an area the width of one and a half lengths at a time. Gently and evenly press the lengths together to ensure there are no visible seams. Make sure the wall has been pasted where the lengths meet so that the edges are not visible. 8–10. Try not to get paste on the front of the wall mural. Any excess paste should be removed immediately using a wet wallpaper sponge. Smooth each length with a clean wallpapering tool or wallpaper brush. Work from the ceiling to the floor and from the middle out to the edges. 11. Once all the wallpaper has been hung, cut off any excess along the ceiling and floor. Always use a sharp blade to avoid tearing the paper. Keep the room ventilated and at normal room temperature for 24 hours to allow the paste to dry.
