FIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR WALL MURALS:

You will need ruler, pencil, scissors, sharp knife, bucket, pasting brush, sponge, plumb line, seam

roller and a profile shredder and a level

ADHESIVE: USE ONLY SOLVITE PROFESSIONAL AND PVA ADHESIVE

Mix the wall paste in a 5 litre bucket. Add one pack of Solvite ™ extra strong and 4 cup fulls of PVA glue to be mixed well together in bucket. Make sure you follow the instructions on the packet.

You must ensure that the wall surface that the mural is to be applied is sound and smooth. Any indentations must be taken away at this stage as this would affect pitting on the mural.

Pre paste the wall area with the PVA and extra strong adhesive ensuring that all surface is covered.

Place the Mural face down on the table.

Apply the paste to the Mural. Make sure it applies evenly to avoid bubbling.

It is important that you paste up to the edges in an outward motion.

After pasting mural leave to soak for a period of 5 to 10 minutes

(Optional) fold a 1/3 of the mural pasted side against pasted side to make it easier to handle.

Apply the Mural to the wall from the top and down using paper hangers brush or profile to smooth out any creases or bubbles.

Brush outwards all the way down to exclude trapped air.

Trim the edges of the mural next to doors, radiators etc. using a sharp knife.

To use a damp sponge or a dry cloth to wipe off any excess PVA from joints, leave then for 24 hours and re-wipe with damp sponge and dry cloth.
