Brick 2ft. x 2ft. Seamless Glue-up Wall Panel (Package of 16 Tiles), Plain White
EPS 3D Wall Panels - Installation Instructions
You will need the following to install the panels correctly:
- A wallpaper cutter
- A measure tape
- A level
- A pencil
- A primer
- An adhesive for polystyrene foam
- An acrylic filler (optional)
- Acrylic or latex paint (optional)
- 1 mm (spax) decking spacers (optional)
Remove the panels from the packaging and wait for at least 4 (four) hours to allow the product to adapt to ambient temperature. Before installing the panels, place them on a flat surface to arrange them in a pattern and to inspect them for mechanical damage that may have been caused during transport. Once you install the panels on a wall or ceiling, you will not be entitled to make any warranty claims.
Step 1. Prepare the surface
The panels should be installed on a clean and dry surface free form loose dirt. Before installation, any holes in the surface (wall or ceiling) should be filled with a patching compound. If the surface is covered with wood, plastic or varnish, sand the surface matt with fine grit sandpaper.
Now prime the surface using a commercial primer.
Step 2. Arrange the panels
Before installing the panels, plan how to arrange them on the surface, paying attention to the direction of the pattern.
A rough drawing of the arrangement is recommended. Use a level and a pencil to mark the contours of the panels on the surface.
Step 3. Cutting
To cut the panels, use a wallpaper cutter. Measure the right length and cut it off with a precise movement.
Step 4. Install the panels on the wall
Glue the panels directly onto the wall using a multi-purpose adhesive for polystyrene foam. Apply the adhesive evenly onto the surface, either in spots or all along the edge of the panel, about 2 ‐ 3 cm from the edge (the reverse side of the panel), and on the contact edges of the panel. Now press the panel gently onto the surface. Use a damp cloth to remove any excess amount of the adhesive. When placing the panels onto the wall, make sure that all the edges adhere properly to the surface. If you discover any cracks in the joints on the panels, use an acrylic filler. As an option, you can install the panels using (spax) decking spacers, not thicker than 3 mm.
Apply an acrylic filler in all cracks. Apply an acrylic filler in all cracks and use a plastic putty knife to remove any excess amount of the filler material to give the surface a uniform decorative look.
Step 5. Painting
Before painting the panels, it is best to wait for at least 24 hours to allow the adhesive acrylic filler material to dry. using commercial acrylic or latex paints for indoor use, paint the panels twice.
- Do not press the panels onto the wall too hard, as this may damage them.
- Use only proven, high quality paints ‐ for good coverage.
- Use an adhesive for polystyrene foam. Consider buying it from us, as we can help you choose the right adhesive for the products.
- Remember to cut the panels only with a sharp wallpaper cutter.
- After painting, use a feather duster or vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to clean the panels.
Do not install the panels in busy areas. Choose surfaces away from an open flame and high temperatures (e.g. a fireplace, a gas cooker etc)
I thought these would have some sort of depth shading, but they do not. They are plain white styrofoam. I had to paint them. I used them for a bedroom in our basement and installation was easy and the glue worked well.
These wall panel tiles are beautifully made, soon as I pulled the panel out of the box you could already tell they were good quality just by how they feel. They come in white or you can order them in the color you want. I decided to get a little creative and just painted them myself with acrylic paint. I have the brick pattern 2ft x 2ft panels and they look amazing painted. Also, you will need some supplies for installation and you'll need to lay the panels out for few hours per the instructions. Overall this was a really fun project and the outcome was stunning. I already have ideas for another area and would absolutely recommend the Decorative Ceiling Tiles brand. The quality is perfect!
First of all, I'm just excited these exist. Installing these panels was so much more cost-effective (not to mention easier) than other alternatives. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow, and the panels are very light-weight making them easy to work with. I want to paint them soon, but even unpainted they greatly improved the look of our wetbar area.
I recently built a wine cellar and was looking for something to put on my ceiling. These are an interesting concept and look surprisingly realistic. I painted them with some inexpensive acrylic paint I got from Amazon and they turned out well. The material is pliable and easy to cut. They adhere quickly and I got the project done in a few hours. I was able to get a good brick look on the ceiling without the stress of hoping that the adhesive would last. This is a nice product for accent walls and areas that just need a little something extra. A good value.
Great way to bring life to a wall or ceiling. Be prepared to paint it...product comes white just like it shows on the photos
I would certainly recommend to someone looking for a unique material choice. Very lightweight and easy to install
