Installing 3d Panel

- Firstly clean the wall and apply the objective to the wall and on the panel.
- Allow it to dry a bit then place the panel carefully on the wall because it could be a little more difficult to adjust if you don't place it right.
- Do the same for as much square metres as you need to install.
- Avoid having spaces in between the board so that the end comes out neat. if you have any spaces after installing simply use filler to fill the spaces. you can now paint if you choose to paint it. The best paint for 3d panel is satin or silk paint because it is soft and makes the panel glow under bright light and also, you can clean off dirts and stain from satin painted surface.
