AnimalFlowers wallpaper-posters

The wallpaper-posters are designed and produced by Swedish designer Hanna Werning, she draw the patterns while she was in art college at St Martins in London.

This is not an ordinary wallpaper that comes in rolls. It works as a single poster as well as a wallpaper. The idea of the wallpaper-posters is that you purchase as many poster sheets you need to cover a larger area or just as a single poster print to frame.

How to wallpaper with wallpaper-posters

1) Start to count how many posters you need for your wall. Spackle and sandpaper the wall to smooth any imperfections. Then, if needed, apply a coat of wallpaper primer.

2) Cover a worktable or just the floor with a plastic painter’s tarp or protective paper that’s larger than one poster. Pour premixed wallpaper glue (paste for paper-based wallpaper) into a paint roller tray. Use a small paint roller to apply it evenly to the back of the poster paper. Make sure to put glue in every corner. Let the poster swell for about half a minute. The paper will expand about 1 cm in width and 0.5 cm in length.

3) Now apply the poster, one poster at a time, smoothing each onto the wall from the centre outward using a plastic smoother. Carefully push any bubbles out toward the borders.

4) Put up next poster next to the first. The seams should butt against one another, not overlap. Make sure these seams lie flat with a plastic smoother or a seam-roller. Trim the bottom poster in place for a precise fit using a sharp utility knife. Wash off excess glue with a damp natural sponge, continuing to smooth the wallpaper as you go.
