Sealing all surfaces with BIN Primer/Sealer is essential! Without proper sealing, walls may warp or surface bleeding may occur and discolor your finish. Proper priming is necessary to protect your walls and produce a blemish free outcome.

7. Can I use a regular paint roller cover?

No. A regular roller cover has a nap that will not allow the Design•R Wall® to adhere to the wall. The Design•R Wall® roller cover has been designed especially for this product.

24 - 48 hours. Drying time will decrease if you place an oscillating fan in the room.

Try not to stop in the middle of a wall. Stop at a corner if possible. Cover mixed product with a damp cloth. Mixture may be left standing for a few days maximum. If application is delayed for a more lengthy time, refrigerate or freeze the wet Design R Wall ®. When resuming your project, mist about 12 inches of the dried portion of Design R Wall ® with water from a spray bottle to restore its wet consistency. Now blend the previous application with the wet mix. This will restore continuity to your application process. Continue rolling product as before.

Design R Wall® has a degree of soil resistance, but you can spray on a fabric protector, such as Scotch Guard, for added protection.

Polyurethane can be purchased in flat (natural look), satin (slight shine), or gloss (high shine, plastic looking), depending on the look you desire. The reusability feature will be lost with the application of polyurethane, and repairs will be require a wallpaper steamer to remove. And repairs will require a wallpaper steamer to remove.
