How to paste fiberglass</a>

You decided to make repairs, but before you faced the task - how to level out the small irregularities of the wall.

The ideal solution will be fiberglass.

You will need

  • -glass fiber
  • -glue-
  • - Rubber spatula-
  • -stationery knife.



Fiberglass can be used for leveling smallWall irregularities and to prepare the surface for painting. It will not work if there are huge potholes in the wall (and you do not plan to seal them), because in such places, with mechanical impact, the fiberglass will simply break. It also does not work if you do not plan on further painting. Remember that this is not a wallpaper, the fiberglass is semi-transparent and does not overlap the color of the wall.


First you need to prepare the walls. We clean them of dirt and dust, large potholes and cracks will have to zashpatlevat. To reduce the absorbency of the paint in the future, it is necessary to primer the walls. To do this, use either a special primer or a weak glue solution.


We proceed directly to the gluing. We measure the necessary length of the canvas with a small margin, cut off with a clerical knife. On the wall, it is necessary to mark the vertical. To do this, use the level, or a plumb line, or simply define by eye. We apply glue on the necessary part of the wall, it must be chosen for glass mural. We put the cut glass-cloth on the smeared wall. Align vertically, smooth with a rubber spatula: first center, then from center to edge. The next cloth glue in the same way. The fiberglass is glued to the joint. If for some reason you can not do this, then we do it in another way: we glue the first strip, but do not strongly smooth the edge, the second strip of glue is overlapped, we make a cut of two canvases, we remove the excess parts. Smooth the resulting joint with a spatula.


Wallpaper glued, waiting when they dry. Do not forget about the fact that there should not be a draft in the room, otherwise the steel can just fall off. The final stage is painting. Fiberglass can be painted like anything, any number of times, it all depends on your imagination.
