Prepare the Tools

Before you begin the installation process, ensure you have the necessary tools at hand:

  1. Laser or water level
  2. Roulette
  3. Toothed spatula
  4. Fine sandpaper
  5. Bucket for mixing gypsum glue
  6. Gypsum-based adhesive
  7. Plain satin for grouting
  8. Paint (acrylic or latex)
  9. Paint applicator (roller, brush, or gun)

Installation Steps

Follow these steps for a seamless installation of your 3D gypsum panels:

  1. Assembly: Lay out the 3D panels on the floor of the room, assembling them like a puzzle. Ensure that all seams align correctly to maintain a cohesive pattern.
  2. Matching Patterns: Join all seams meticulously, paying attention to pattern continuity. This step is crucial for a visually appealing and uniform result.
  3. Mounting Flat Panels: Installing geometrically flat panels is straightforward. Ensure they are securely mounted to the wall.
  4. Adhesive Application: Use a toothed spatula to apply gypsum-based adhesive onto the panels. Affix the panels to the wall, similar to the installation of ceramic tiles. Pay close attention to maintaining a level position.
  5. Grouting and Finishing: After installation, grout the panels to eliminate visible seams. Once the grout has dried, sand the surface to achieve a smooth finish.
  6. Painting: Paint the panels using acrylic or latex paint. You can use a brush, roller, or gun for this step, depending on your preference. Ensure even coverage for a polished appearance.

By following these steps and using the recommended tools, you can achieve a professional and visually stunning installation of your 3D gypsum panels.
