Installation Of Basic
Your drywall should Not be painted or primed. If the wall is already primed or painted, use a fine sandpaper to thoroughly rough up the surface area. Wipe off the dust that you’ve generated by sanding before proceeding with the adhesive. You will be applying 2 coats of adhesive for wall installations.
Next simply roll our adhesive on the wall or you can use a paint brush to apply the adhesive if its a small area. Wait until the adhesive dries to tacky and clear state (about 30- 45 mins.), then apply a second coat. Wait til the second coat of adhesive is clear before starting and you’ll be able to see your lines again. Align one corner of the tile against your 2 lines and then carefully push down the rest of that tile. Carefully align the edge of the next tile to the first one and continue to stick the tiles to the wall. Carefully place each tile tightly against the next one because once the tile sticks, its very difficult to remove. When the tile is in place, smack the tile with the palm of your hand all across the tile to ensure that all parts of the tile have made contact with the wall adhesive. You then must use a rubber mallet or a hammer with a batten board to make sure all parts of the tile are secured to the wall. Using a hand roller is not sufficient.
