Before you get started here is everything you need:

Preparing your wall

Ensure the wall surface is clean, dry, structurally sound, free of mildew and grease and is as smooth as possible in order to achieve the best possible results when hanging wallpaper, and for ease of removal when redecorating.

  • Any holes, cracks or defects in the surface should be filled with a good quality filler, smoothed out and allowed to completely dry.
  • Brush off the area to be covered with ohpopsi wallpaper with a stiff brush to remove all dirt and loose materials

Putting the mural up

 

1.  When your wall is fully prepared, use a plum line or spirit level to ensure you have a straight line to begin hanging your mural - the position of the first strip determines the overall look of the completed mural, so take the time to place it accurately.

2.  Trim off the hanging instructions and keep them nearby for reference.

4.  Apply paste the wall wallpaper adhesive to the wall, covering enough area for the first strip

5.  Apply the first strip to the wall lining with your plum line or straight edge, gently work out any large air pockets downwards and outwards  - Take care not to overwork each strip as this could result in stretching, making it harder to line up following strips.

6.  Carefully remove any excess paste from the front of the mural using a lightly dampened cloth. Too much rubbing or cleaning may remove ink from the paper.

7.   Keep repeating steps 3-6 using the remaining 5 strips of your wall mural (6 for the XL), lining up the design and tightly butting up each join so that no gaps can be seen.
