A bit quirky but fun!
Is that your own gaff mate?
Nicely thought out where to end and begin that paper , height wise that is. Always bugs me when deccies decapitate an animal cos they don't put any thought into whereabouts on the pattern to start hanging it from (or where the bottom finishes for that matter ).
Even more impressive when you had four different types of animals to potentially decapitate yet they're all unscathed
Yes this ones a new build! the painting isn't the best had to sand the carp to all surfaces to get a decent finish and sprayed the woodwork, but the wife loves the paper, to be honest the photos don't do it justice as alot of the print is metallic!
Yep @crj I always work out mainly on the prominent part of the pattern I think the pattern is the most important part can be challenging on corners to keep the animal intact and not decapitated especially then the corners out of plumb!
Not my cuppa tea that ,but cant fault the hanger ,spot on pattern placement there
Very nicely done 3spires ,
Yeah I spend ages planning the pattern out too, especially when it's the whole room I'm doing. There's usually a bit of a compromise somehwere along the line (often due to the manufacturer's poor design) but looks bang on there.
Yes very nicely set out. I’ve recently had a big spike in paper hanging, all I used to do in the 90,s. What I do with setting up pattern is unroll the paper on the floor , then use 2 pieces of skirting board acting as ceiling & floor to see how pattern looks on wall.
The worst bit was the manufacturer (German) didn't include soaking times and the paper expanded quite a bit so timing had to be bob on, I do admit I am slow at paper-danging pattern papers but its worth a extra hour to get it right.
@YTS 83' good idea regarding the peace’s of wood il use that . It’s not always possible to have everything prlerfect amd intact . Like ya say @3 spires walls can be out ceilings can drop so not always possible
Nice work mate. I did a rasch a few years back.. it loved a bubble... friggin stuff. Dried out spot on over night though...
That looks lovely @3 spires
Last Rasch paper I hung was a nightmare due to it quality.
You made a great job of it
