Installation of a Custom Wall Mural by SignGrafx
Step 1: Lay out your custom wall mural for inspection
You don’t have to lay out your entire custom wall mural at once, although you should do so if possible. Keep in mind that the first panel you install will be from the center of your custom wall mural.Notice that there is a 1” overlap between the panels of your custom wall mural
Step 2: Protect the floor beneath the installation site
Lay a protective mat, such as painter’s plastic, on the floor below the wall you’ll be installing your custom wall mural on.Remove any socket or vent covers on the wall.
Step 3: Chalk a center line to insure level installation
You can find the handy chalk line you see in this video at most hardware stores.
Step 4: Prepare wallpaper paste: 3 parts paste to 1 part water
Pour the wallpaper paste into a mixing tray.Add water and mix.
Step 5: Align the first panel to the chalk line and install
Roll your wallpaper paste onto the wall where your first panel will go.Don’t apply more than one panel’s worth of paste to the wall at one time, it will dry.Align the panel with your chalk line.Once you’re satisfied with the alignment, use a squeegee to press the panel down.If you think you need more paste at any point, don’t hesitate to use it.
Step 6: Align the second panel with the panel you just installed
Again, roll on your paste, line up the panel, and squeegee it down.Repeat with all of the remaining panels of your custom wall mural.
Step 7: Trim off the excess from the top and bottom of your custom wall mural
Use your squeegee to press the custom wall mural into the corners, and as a straight edge to cut against.
Step 8: Execute the “double cut”
Because of the 1” overlap mentioned earlier, you can cut through both overlapping panels for a seamless transition between the two.Repeat this step for all of the overlapping panels of your custom wall mural.Use an edge roller to press down the seams between panels.Now you can sit back and enjoy the whole new atmosphere of your room, thanks to your new SignGrafx custom wall mural!
