Wallpaper with non woven backing:
The surface must be wallpaper-ready, which means: dry, clean and flat. Old wallpaper or painted layers must be removed.
Treat a absorbent surface first with a suitable primer from your local store.
RECOMMENDED TOOLS / GLUE
Roller and container / Brush / Perpendicular line / Straightedge / Pencil / Stanleymes / Scissors / Wallpaper roller or spatula
Always use a ready-to-use wallpaper adhesive suitable for non-woven wallpaper. For preference our professional ready-to-use water-based adhesive for non-woven wallcoverings and seamless wallcoverings: Pro Paste Adhesive.
1 The wallpaper drops are arranged in order on the roll
2 Cut the paper drops along the dot-line from the roll.
3 Prepare the wallpaper sheets in order of the design. (you can write gently with a soft pencil the drop-number on the back and on top the drop, just to be sure.
4 Check that all drops are present and look neat and undamaged.
5 Never start directly in the corner, because corners are never straight. Usually there are also the heating pipes and sockets that have to be worked around. It is important that the first drop hangs straight.
TIP: Use a plumb (perpendicular) line and put a straight pencil line down on the wall. Measure the width of the roll and put a second straight pencil line on the wall, covering the width of the roll.
Now you have a visual reference of the area of one drop that needs to be glued.
6. Use the roller to put a thin layer of adhesive close towards, but not over, the pencil lines.
7. Use the roller to distribute the wallpaper paste evenly over the wall from top to bottom, not too thick.
8. Make sure that the entire surface is covered with an adhesive layer, this prevents the wall from bobbing.
9.Stick the first wallpaper drop along this line. Carefully glue the drops together so that no seams can be seen.
10. The drops should not be put over each other but towards each other without overlapping.
TIP: The paper sheets must be glued together, so absolutely not over each other!
TIP: Do not apply wallpaper paste to the front of the wallpaper. Should this happen, remove the adhesive immediately with a slightly damp sponge.
11. Smooth each drop soft and very lightly (to avoid damage) with a wallpaper roller or spatula.
12. Work from the ceiling to the floor and from the center to the edges.
13. If all the drops are stuck, remove carefully the long overlap pieces at the ceiling and floor. Do this by using a sharp knife cutter to prevent tearing of the paper.
14. Ventilate the room and keep it at room temperature for at least 24 hours to allow the adhesive to dry properly. Do not open windows or doors or turn on the heating, otherwise the wall will dry too quickly.

Always use a ready-to-use wallpaper adhesive suitable for heavy wallpaper. For preference our professional ready-to-use water-based adhesive for Pro Paste Adhesive.
Important to know before you start:
• Make sure the wall has a smooth nish
• If the wall is porous, you should first cover the wall in primer. You can test if a wall is porous by
putting water on the wall and see if it absorbs any of the moisture.
• Use our Wallpaper Past and a short-haired eece roller or block brush.
• Give the paste a good stir before you get started. Note that the paste is not dilutable.
• Does your print consist of multiple pieces? Apply the pieces with an overlap and cut through both
layers to create a seamless finish.
1. The wallpaper should be rolled up so that it can be rolled down from left to right (with the print facing you).
2. Cover the wall in a good amount of Wallpaper Paste Medium.
3. Take the print and allign it in the left topcorner before unrolling the rest of the print.
Only press the wallpaper onto the wall along the top.
4. Once you feel the wallpaper is in the right position you can start to apply the wallpaper
to the wall by stroking the print down with an applica on spatula. Start at the top in the middle and work your way to the sides making strokes all the way down the wall.
5. Cut away the excess material along the edges. Make sure to firmly press the edges once more with your spatula to ensure there is good adhesion.
6. Remove any paste residue that is on the print with clean water and gently dry the surface.
