Features of using a grater when applying liquid wallpaper

The tool in question is often made of plastic and equipped with an L-shaped handle. Its surface should be smooth, which contributes to the sliding of a viscous mass from it.

Basic rules for applying using a grater:

  1. After applying the material to the surface, it should be rubbed along the plane with rectilinear movements.
  2. The tool must be at an angle of 20° relative to the surface.
  3. Rubbing should be done starting from the corner and moving from left to right.
  4. The thickness of the applied layer should vary within 1 - 1.5 mm.
  5. If the decoration of the walls in the room takes several days, then it is recommended that the walls be processed from corner to corner. This will prevent the appearance of visually noticeable joints at the borders.
  6. In hard-to-reach places, it is necessary to use a tool for liquid wallpaper of small sizes, carefully rubbing the material over the surface with it.
  7. After completion of work, it is worth carefully examining the coated surfaces in sunlight. The identified errors can be eliminated with a trowel by soaking the required areas.
