Remember: in order for the drawings with liquid wallpaper on the surface of the walls to harmoniously fit into the interior of the space, try not to overdo it with the diversity of patterns and accents.

What tools are used in the process of applying liquid wallpaper to the walls?

To create drawings and patterns from liquid wallpaper on the walls, you will need the following materials and tools:

  • plastic trowel - a tool that is necessary to correctly limit the contours of the image;
  • a small plastic semi-ter for uniform distribution of the mixture in separate areas;
  • stencils (preferably plastic, because paper ones get wet quickly).

How to draw a picture with liquid wallpaper?

Drawing liquid wallpaper with patterns on the walls is carried out according to a sketch or using a stencil. In the first case, the image is applied to the surface to be decorated with a simple pencil, drawing contours, small elements, marking its color on each part of the image.
Then the prepared mixture is applied to areas that are not adjacent to each other.

    To make drawings from liquid wallpaper look colorful and attractive, take note of a few useful tips:

    • contours of images should be formed with a spatula;
    • each next color is applied to the wall after the previous one has set. In this case, the individual elements of the pattern, which are covered with a finishing mixture at a time, should not adjoin each other;
    • after applying the finish until it dries completely, it is necessary to withstand a time of at least 24 hours. After drying, the details of the image are carefully leveled with a knife.

    Patterns on the walls of liquid wallpaper using special stencils should be applied to the finished finish (that is, it is the main photo). Fix the stencil to the wall with masking tape, spread the mixture in the slots, and then carefully peel the stencil from the wall.

    • Pictures from liquid wallpaper should be applied no earlier than 48 hours after applying the main background.
    • Adjacent areas cannot be processed immediately after applying the mixture, otherwise the lines of the drawing will not be clear and expressive.
