How to hang a wall mural

Step 1: Your mural should come in one roll, so you need to carefully unwrap and cut off the instructions from the end of the roll.

Step 2: Next, you need to prepare your wall, so make sure you fill and sand down any imperfections. Once this is done, clean the wall with detergent or sugar soap.

Step 3: Measure 48cm from your starting point and use a plumb line to draw a vertical line – this will give you a straight edge for your first panel. Mix the paste according to the manufacturer’s instructions and apply to the first section of your wall.

Step 4: Your mural comes in sections, we recommend cutting each piece as you go, this way you can’t get the panels mixed up. Hang your first drop with the right-hand edge aligned to your plumb line, working from left to right. When you’re happy with the position, smooth down and trim the excess paper away.

Step 5: Continue to cut and paste each section as you go. Wipe away any excess paste with a damp cloth.
