Paper a canvas on the wall or on its surface


Canvas can be wallpapered as wallpaper or wallpapered with wallpaper. In both cases, conventional wallpaper pastes or special fabric containers can be used. The linen fabric resembles a textile wallpaper and has a certain degree of elasticity. When pressing and rolling, even pressure is crucial.

Wallpaper the whole piece to the wall

When a canvas is attached to a wall instead of wallpaper, the biggest challenge is usually in the large format. The canvas picture can not and should not be cut into sheets. Nevertheless, to bring the canvas smoothly and without bumps on the wall, helps a kind of scrolling technique.

The entire canvas is fixed to the wall with a few dots of double-sided adhesive tape. It is then rolled up to one half in the vertical direction to one side. The bead then stands like a ajar carpet on the wall. To stabilize the role, a winding aid such as a broomstick without Benseil be used as a roll-up.
