Glitter wallcovering can be hung horizontally or vertically, we can recommend which way is best for your wall size. Glitter should be hung in the same way as it comes off the roll, if not there will be a shading difference.
When hanging our glitter wallcoverings we recommend pasting the wall and not the wallcovering.
You must ensure that each length is running in the same direction. In order to ensure this make sure you mark on each length TOP/BOTTOM, or ensure the roll is not flipped/ turned after hanging each length. Please stand back and check there is no shading difference between the 1st and 2nd length before applying to the pasted wall.
It is recommended that you have someone hold or pin each section in place to check each section matches and there are no faults before pasting and hanging, as this will allow you to see each section in the same light and position as it will be hung.
Apply the wallpaper adhesive to the wall evenly and leave to go slightly tacky before applying the wallcovering to the wall to ensure it holds. While applying the wallcovering, do not allow any wallpaper paste to get on to the face of the glitter as removal will be impossible.
The wallcovering has movement therefore this will help before making any cuts. You should overhang at the top and bottom of the wall (or left/ right of the wall if hanging horizontally) then trim along the wall edge using a Stanley knife so that there is a clean finish to the edges.
When hanging more than one length of wallcovering, both lengths should be overlapped and spliced (splice the overlapped joint between each drop) overlap approx 5cm and slice down through the Centre of the overlap.
When making the finishing touches to the joint take care not to squeeze out any paste on to the face of the glitter. The joint may be seam rolled if required. Ensure you do not overwork the joint, as this may cause damage.
TIPS: We suggest two knives used for each joint, replacing the blade for a new one for each joint in both knives as the blade will go blunt quickly (it is important to use a good quality Stanley knife as it is necessary to apply enough pressure to cut through both sections at once in order to ensure a clean cut join)
Once the glitter has been placed on to the wall you can use small tacks to hold it in place while drying. (only needed if the edges start to come away from the wall. If the adhesive is left on the wall long enough to go tacky this should prevent this from happening)
