Step 1: Prepare Your Surface and Decal
You will need to allow a freshly painted wall to cure 2-3 weeks before installing your decal.
Unroll your Cozy Wall Art decal and lay it flat on a hard surface. Use the squeegee to flatten any rolls or wrinkles. Flip it over and repeat the process. If your decal curls up, you can weigh it down with books.
Step 2: Position the Decal on the Wall
After you have achieved your desired placement of the decals, place a long strip of tape across the middle of the shortest distance of the decal(s). Then remove any additional tape that was used for previewing the arrangement.
Step 3: Transfer the Decal to the Wall
Step 4: Smooth the Decal
Note: If your walls have a texture on them, your decal may adhere better if you wrap your squeegee in a soft cloth. The cloth will help press the decal into the nooks and crannies of the wall texture.
Step 5: Remove the Transfer Paper
Be careful not to peel the paper away at a 45-90 degree angle as this will pull the decal away from the wall. If any part of the decal begins to come off the wall, stop and rub the transfer paper back down on that section with your squeegee or fingers until that portion of the decal adheres.
Note: If the transfer paper won’t release the decal onto your wall, take a damp sponge onto the back of the paper to moisten it and help release the adhesive.
Step 6: Special Considerations
Wall Texture: Cozy wall decals are designed to stick to any non-porous paint (they stick best to semi-gloss but they also stick to matte and high-gloss paint). They stick best to smooth surfaces. They may not stick well to highly textured surfaces. Try your test decal first to make sure it will stick to your wall. To achieve the best adhesion possible on a textured surface, after you remove the transfer tape, use your fingers or a soft cloth to very gently run the decal into the grooves of your texture.
** For more complicated textures or decals, use a hair dryer on (very) low to soften the adhesive while pushing it into the grooves.
