Wallpaper murals we provide are printed on quality wet strength paper and are hung
like wallpaper. Due to it being photo wallpaper it does not need to be soaked like
wallpaper. The murals cut in to 2, 4 or 8 panels that piece together to make up the
whole photo wall. The panels are poster sized and cut from the whole mural to ensure
perfect match of size and colour.
Layout your mural to ensure that you are happy with the print and colour match and
that it fits together correctly. We do not offer exchanges or refunds once you have
hung any part of your mural.
You do not have to be an experience decorator to hang your wallpaper mural but you
will need patience. Have all the tools you’ll need and little thought before you hang
the first panel will help. You don’t even have to hang it all on the same day!
- Wall preparation – Remove loose paint or paper and fill any holes that might show
through your mural. IMPORTANT- Coat any dry or paper lined walls with a coat
wallpaper paste prior to hanging, and let dry. This will stop the mural sticking
instantly to the wall.
- Position your mural - unless you are very lucky your photo wallpaper won’t fill you
wall perfectly. Before you start you should decide how you wish to cut and centre it.
After you have laid out your mural decide which panel you will hang first. Try to start
with a full panel. Certain murals are mark by numbers.
- Mix paste – prepare wallpaper paste, Solivite or similar, and wait to turn to gel.
Make sure you have enough paste ready to mix. If you are using spray fix follow the
- Hang first panel - paste the back of the first panel completely but not too thickly. Try
not to get on the photo side, but you can wipe off after if you do. DO NOT soak or
fold mural panels. Hang each panel from top to bottom applying to the wall with a
brush or damp sponge.
- Bubbles - Any large bubbles can be wiped out or you can gently lift the edge of the
panel and brush or wipe out. Smaller bubbles will dry flat with the mural.
If you think that a bubble isn’t drying out of your mural pop it with a small pin and
gently squeeze the air out.
- Paper Stretch – Due to the wallpaper murals being printed on photo wet strength
paper the panels can stretch by 15mm when you apply them to the wall. Please be
aware of this because you will need to match the each panel size when applying.
- Next Panel - try the next panel dry so you’re confident with its place and fit. Apply
paste and hang into place. Brush on making sure it’s butted tightly against the first. If
you overlap, do so by 1mm and hang your wallpaper mural towards the light source in
- Trim excess – carefully peel back and cut with scissors or carefully trim with very
sharp craft knife. Remember the paper is wet and will rip if your knife is not sharp.
Paste down any loose edges and sponge out.
- Clean Up – Using a slightly damp sponge carefully clean paste off your wallpaper
