|Remove existing paper. Painted surfaces should be washed. Extremely porous surfaces should be pre-sized. Fill large cracks or holes with spackle or filler. Use waterproof spackle and paste for walls where moisture or humidity is likely.||Using a level or plumb bob, make a vertical guideline on the wall for proper placement the first length. Brush or roll paste over wall surface to be covered by the first two or three sections (if using waterproof paste, reduce area somewhat.) One gallon covers approximately 15 sq. yards.||Hang the first length. Work from center of strip towards edges to remove lumps and bubbles.|

Texturglas is not recommend for exterior use unless embedded in an exterior stucco or other coatings made for outdoor use. For lightweight patterns, a wall liner or skim coating is recommended to effectively hide imperfections of the wall surface. For masonry block, the block faces should be in plane and the joints should be filled to produce a uniform appearance. Acceptable surface appearance may be dependent on proper surface preparation. Certain patterns may or may not be suitable over certain surfaces. Consult Roos
