Instructions for hanging non-woven wallpaper
(Our Owls of the British Isles, Briar Owl, Brambleweb, Storm Clouds, Cross Stitch and Bird wallpaper)
For full hanging instructions please see the reverse of the label that comes with your paper.
Walls should be clean, dry and even.
Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint
Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper
Scrape powdery, flaky surfaces. Absorbent surfaces should be prepared with an oil based primer ensuring it dries completely.
New plaster should be allowed to dry out completely
Metallic effects can be damaged if high levels of alkaline are already present in the walls. Preparing the walls with an alkaline resistant primer should prevent any damage of this type.
For best results, we recommend that the walls are cross lined using a good quality lining paper. Sizing lining paper will aid adhesion. Lining should be allowed to dry completely before hanging the wallcovering.
Dark wallcoverings may need their edges coloured with a crayon of a similar tone to avoid white edges showing.
This is a ‘paste the wall’ product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallcovering.
A premium quality tub adhesive or an equivalent good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected, light grade adhesive should be used.
DO NOT USE SELF MIX ADHESIVE. ALL PURPOSE AND HEAVY DUTY PASTES ARE NOT SUITABLE
Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang 1 length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the roll.
Butt joins together and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
Avoid squeezing paste out of joins and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst handling the wallcovering.
Paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by the paste.
Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.
Trim top and bottom with a sharp knife or scissors.
Ensure wall covering is firmly adhered as, in the event of fire, loose wallcoverings can contribute to the hazard.
