Before You Start

Layout each panel next to its matching panel. Look for good color match, pattern match and defects. If you find defects in the print, you should stop and contact Walls Talk.

Preparing Your Wall

Proper surface preparation is key to getting great results. To prepare the surface properly, we recommend that you prime all surfaces with a universal, white-pigmented, mold inhibiting wallcovering primer. We recommend Roman Pro-935 Primer, also called R-35. Mark straight horizontal and vertical lines on your wall to line up the first panels.

Recommended Adhesives

Roman Pro-838 Heavy Duty Clear Adhesive, Roman Pro-880 (Stippable), or Zinsser Sure Grip-128 Heavy Duty Clear Adhesive. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for using the adhesive. When purchasing your adhesive be sure to mention your wall covering is vinyl, not paper.

Applying Adhesive

Use of a mildew inhibitor in the adhesive is recommended. Do not dilute the adhesive. Brush an even coat of paste over entire back of the wallcovering. Pay particular attention to run over edges so they are sure to be pasted. Book material for ten minutes.

Apply the recommended adhesive to the back using either a pasting machine or a paint roller. Work the adhesive in, to cover the back completely, especially near the edges. Fold each end toward the middle, pasted sides together, aligning the edges carefully so they do not dry out. CAUTION: Do not crease wallcovering. Allow to "relax" for ten minutes (booking). This will allow the adhesive to penetrate the wallcovering fabric, which is important to a successful installation.

Installing the Panels

Avoid burnishing the face of the material. Use a wallcovering brush or a plastic scraper to smooth the wallcovering onto the wall. For optimal durability we recommend the use of a liquid topcoat to protect the surface of the wallcovering pattern from stain and abrasion.

Do not rub. Do not allow vinyl adhesive to dry on surface as it may leave a white residue. Wash off excess paste from face of wallcovering as you hang it with a cellulose sponge. The cellulose sponge must be rinsed in clean water after every use. Blot dry with a clean cloth.

Place the second strip to the edge of the first strip. Tape seams before overlapping and double cutting to avoid getting adhesive on the wallcovering. If paste does get on the vinyl, clean it off immediately with clean warm water and blot dry with a clean lint less towel. Use a soft bristle brush to wash the ceiling and the baseboard to remove any paste residue. Do not leave any overlap on the seams since vinyl will not adhere to itself. Seams should be vertical, have a tight fit, and be free from air and paste bubbles. Seams should not be located closer than 6" to corners.

Applying Protective Top Coat

Once your wall covering has been hung, cleaned and dried, it is highly advisable to protect the surface with our special liquid top coating called DreamGUARD Protex3. Follow the instructions on the label.
