This applies to wall/wood furniture/any other matte porous surfaces.
Preparation before pasting
Clean the area you want to paste the decal with a wet cloth. Make sure there’s no grease or oily stains. Then leave it to dry.
Dust the surface.
Use masking tape or blue tag to hold the decal on the wall.Get a rough idea on where you want to paste, and how it will look.
Take down the decals and remove the decal from the wax paper. Put the sticker on a flat surface with the decal facing up. Slowly peel the transparent tape from one corner. If the sticker won’t stick onto the transparent tape (transfer tape)…
Flip the decal over, wax paper facing up.
Instead of peeling the transparent tape, now peel the paper. You can fold the paper to let the decal ‘pop out’. Avoid using your fingers to push the decal onto the transparent tape, as you might stick dirt/dust/oily content onto the sticky part of the decal, which will make the decal less sticky. And it might have the possibility of the decal pasted onto your finger, and you’ll have a hard time position the decal back to its original position.
If the decal still sticks onto wax paper…
Fold back the wax paper slightly then push down and forward slowly as shown.
And now your decal is successfully removed from wax paper and ready to be pasted.
Re-position the decal.
Gently paste the decal.
Now you have successfully positioned the decal…
Now repeat the process for of the decals.
Use a squeegee or a similar to credit card thickness card, to apply pressure onto the decal and squeeze air out of the decal.
Now slowly peel the transfer tape.
Do not peel by pulling outwards, pull downwards like the picture above.
If the decal still sticks onto transfer tape…
Flip back the transfer tape…
Use your squeegee again to apply pressure, focused on the area that didn’t stick well to the surface.
Then use the folding method like what you used to remove the decal from wax paper. Slowly fold and roll down.
