At the second stage, it is customary to cut the wallpaper on a firm and level surface. The length of one canvas should be greater than the height of the walls by 3-5 centimeters. Be sure to use a square to cut the edges so that the edges are even. They are glued by their "butt" method, so it's important to know how to glue the wallpaper back and forth. But this is nothing difficult, just a matter of skill. On the side that is glued at the top, make a serial number. On the sides of the canvas there are marker lines. It is for them to cut off technological "tides".

Wallpapers must absorb the amount of moisture they need. So, they are left for 20-30 minutes. The field of this procedure they increase in size by 1-2 centimeters. Then apply glue. The wallpaper is drying for about 24 hours.
