If you have been looking for an easy way to apply a fresh coat of paint to your walls and make them look new again, the Art Deco wallpaper peel and stick are the right answer for you. This type of wallpaper was popular in the decorative art Deco era, and it has survived until these days because of its beauty and simplicity. The reason for this is the fact that it can be easily removed by simply peeling off the decal backing with a knife. You do not need any special skills in order to apply this wallpaper. All you will need is a paper towel or similar soft cloth, a sharp utility knife and a mild detergent.
Since the original Art Deco wallpaper was created with a heavy dark liner, it is very hard to remove. In order to make this difficult job easier, you will want to rub the wall with a stiff brush dipped in detergent solution. This will loosen the deep-set cement over which the Deco wallpaper is stuck. By carefully scraping the area you can easily loosen and remove the paper backing from the wall.
After removing the paper backing from the wall you can begin to apply the new Art Deco wallpaper peel and stick. This will take some time as the Deco wallpaper needs to be dried thoroughly before you apply it. Once it has dried well, the stick can be easily applied with a felt tip.
To remove the old Deco wallpaper from your wall, first rub down the wall with a soft cloth and then dampen the stick with water. You will want to try to push the stick into the wall without causing any damage. Once you have pushed the stick in, you will want to wipe it off with another clean dry cloth.
There are a few different ways you can remove Deco wallpaper. One way is to take a sheet of the deco paper with the image you want to remove, spray it with some mild soapy water, and scrub it away. You can also use an old washing machine nozzle to spray the paper with water and scrub it. Both methods should be very carefully done because the paper could become damaged if the wrong method is used. Once either method is complete you will need to let it dry for an hour or two to make sure that you get all the paper off the wall.
If you would like to attempt a different method of removing your old art Deco wallpaper, then you may want to consider scraping the wall with a knife. You can slice off the paper with relative ease and you can use either a regular knife or an electric one. With a regular knife, you can create a smooth even edge on the wall that will match the original look. With an electric tool, you can create a rounded edge or you can ruin the effect by leaving large sharp edges that cut into everything.
Another way to remove deco wallpaper without damage is to simply shake it out. You would take the piece of Deco wallpaper and rub it vigorously until it became loose. Then, you would tear it off the paper. When the paper gets rid of the paper, it can be easily discarded without causing any damage. This method can work well if you are trying to replace just one or two areas of the wall.
However, if you have a whole room full of old art Deco wallpaper, this method probably isn't going to work for you. For this case, the best option is to stick the wallpaper down with something that doesn't cause too much damage. If the Deco wallpaper is something that has lots of glue and can be torn off, then a good idea would be some strong sealant. A spray bottle with water is a great sealant tool that you can use. Some people even try to apply several layers of sealant to help make sure that the wallpaper stays put. Once the entire wall has been covered with a waterproof sealant, you will be able to enjoy your new Deco wallpaper!
