Mural hanging instructions
  • Place the first panel in the middle upper or bottom of the wall.
  • Work out wards to the edges with other panels.
  • Overlap the panels by 1 -2mm as the panels may shrink during the drying.
  • Press out air bubbles with a clean wallpaper brush from the centre outwards until smooth.
  • Small air bubbles should disappear once the mural has dried.
  • Wipe gently any surplus paste from the panel surface with a soft damp sponge before the paste dries.
  • Trimming if required, should be done once the mural has dried to prevent tearing.
