  • a tape measure,
  • a spirit level,
  • fine grit sandpaper,
  • acrylic or latex paint (optionally),
  • Styrofoam glue

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Surface preparation.

The panels are intended for installation on a clean, dry surface without loose impurities. The panels should be glued using strong Styrofoam glues available in the market.

If the surface of the wall is covered with wood, plastic or if it is varnished, use fine grit sandpaper to give it a matte appearance. It is recommended that the surface should then be treated with a primer generally available in the market.

Step 2: Layout of the panels.

Before installing the panels, plan a layout of the panels on the wall to cover the entire wall or only part of it. A rough drawing of the layout is recommended for a better idea of the final effect. Use a spirit level and a pencil to mark the contours of the design on the surface to be covered with the panels.

Step 3: Installing the panels on the wall

Glue the panels directly onto the wall using glue. Apply the glue evenly on the surface of the wall, and on the flat areas and side edges of the panel. Now press the panel gently onto the surface of the wall. Remove any excess glue using a damp cloth. While installing the panels, make sure that all the edges of the panel adhere to the surface during installation. The joints between the panels can be filled with acrylic mass, silicone or acrylic glue.

Step 4: Priming and painting.

After the panels have been glued onto the surface, treat the surface with a primer available in the market to make the panels less absorptive and to increase the adhesion of paint to the surface. After priming, coat the panels with an acrylic or latex paint available in the market. To give the surface a natural plaster finish and to toughen the structure of the decorated surface, two layers of paint are recommended.
