How to seal photo prints on a wall

Each wallpaper has labels that must be followed. They define the type of adhesive and the way it is applied. The wall on which the wallpaper should be attached should be dry, clean, and smooth. It is advised that the substrate is painted in a white or neutral color so as not to break the previous color through the wallpaper.

Basic steps:

1. Unwrap the roll and cut off with the scissors in the marked places.

2. Each cut part of the wallpaper has a mark on the top. It contains product information as well as a number indicating the sequence of gluing. Cut out the tags after you paste the wallpaper onto the wall.

3. Measure the width of the roll and transfer the value to the wall. Photocopies are set clockwise, which means you need to stick from left to right of the room.

4. At the previously marked edge of the first length of the wallpaper, pull the vertical line that will serve as the direction of the wallpaper. It is very important that the first lane of the wallpaper be set at right angles because everything follows the next one. Apply adhesive to the wall in thin layers using a roller and brush.

5. Tap the wallpaper in place using a soft, clean cloth. Align the wallpaper with a rubber roller and avoid excess air behind the wallpaper. Place the second width of the wallpaper at the edge of the first roll and repeat the procedure carefully by matching the pattern. Remove excess glue using a soft cloth or sponge but do not rub.

6. Cut the ends of the wallpaper with a scalpel that you laid on a long flat lath or a lanyard. When cutting, place the scalpel at a lower angle so as not to split the wallpaper.

7. Align the wallpaper using a rubber sponge or damp cloth. It’s important to push out all the air that may have stayed behind the wallpaper. High heat or low air quality can cause the opening of the joints.
