CLEAR THE WALL AND SPACE AROUND IT

  • Remove everything that is on the wall like painting, photo frame, decorative items etc.
  • Move all furniture to the centre of the room or away from the wall which is to be covered.
  • Cover the floor beneath the wall with cardboard/newspaper or plastic sheet to protect your floor.
  • Keep your Tool kit ready for preparing your wall. We suggest following tools- Hammer, screwdriver, sand paper, scraper, sponge, water bucket, waste bin, blade knife/cutter, paint roller, mask.
Make the wall smooth and clean

MAKE THE WALL SMOOTH AND CLEAN

  • A plastered wall is a must and preferably with POP.
  • Remove any nails, screws or any unwanted object which may damage your wall covering.
  • Remove any old wallpaper before installation.
  • Old, flaking or loose paint will need to be scraped using a sandpaper to get a smooth surface.
  • For freshly painted walls, allow 2 to 3 weeks drying time before installing your mural.
  • Treat your wall with a good quality wall sealer/ primer which must be white coloured.
  • Wall surfaces MUST be smooth, flat and free of flaky paint, dust or other containments.
List of Must Dos while preparing the wall

MUST DOS

  • Wall must be free of any termites or seepage.
  • In case of old painted walls, it is preferable to give 1 coat of white paint so that old paint does not show through in light coloured designs.
  • Make sure the wall is clean, dry and smooth. A well-prepared wall leads to a great looking finish.
