Silk liquid wallpaper

In addition to traditional paper wallpaper options, washable types are used, such as vinyl (including foamy, heavy, flat or flat). There are also textile, non-woven, even metal and fiberglass ones.

Recently, buyers are interested in liquid silk – a beautiful, practical, strong, durable finishing material. If properly applied and carefully maintained, it will last twenty years.


How to choose silk liquid wallpaper

This is a natural product. It is environmentally friendly, fire resistant, meets the safety requirements for human health. Safety is ensured by the use of natural ingredients: silk, cotton fibers, quartz, mineral fillers, dyes, glue.

Sand and cement are excluded. A variety of substances are added to the composition to accentuate the features of the structure, give an original decor, change the shades of color.

Liquid wallpaper looks original, in the structure of which there is mother-of-pearl, mineral chips, gold threads and other similar components.

Relief is achieved using straws or other light material. With a figured spatula, flock, stick, glitter or stencil, a variety of patterned solutions are given to the coating.

Due to the variety of its texture, this material is universal. They can change any interior, give it an unexpected style solution. Used in the main form and for painting. Various additives achieve the desired color.



If you buy the building material in question for painting, it is important to follow the painting technology. The challenge is to achieve an even tone. To do this, the dye is dissolved in water, the amount of which is indicated by the manufacturer in the instructions, and only after that the dry mixture is added. Otherwise, the color will turn out “uneven”.

It is advisable not to paint the wallpaper applied to the wall, because the effect of the pleasant, warm-feeling texture for which they are so valued will be lost.

Instead of the usual rolls in stores, the goods are offered in bags or bags containing granules that dissolve easily in water. If the repair is done by hand, you can safely choose this option.

Each package (contains 1 kg) is accompanied by a detailed description of the preparation of the solution for application and the finishing process itself. 1 kg is enough to cover 5 – 6 m2 flat area. In cases of unevenness, one package is enough for 3rd – 4th m2.

The indisputable qualities of finishing with liquid wallpaper include ease of use. They do not require such careful preparation of the walls as other types. However, the surfaces must be smooth, without visible defects, cleaned of the previous coating.

If the walls are of poor quality, it is better to use a special primer. This is relevant if there is an assumption that:

  • the original color will show through the newly applied solution;
  • the structures on which the liquid composition is applied are made of reinforced concrete;
  • The base is highly absorbent.

Pre-treatment depends on the building material. Used universal primer. Before applying to drywall surfaces, it is better to process them:

  • processing, filling joints between sheets of drywall;
  • applying a layer of special waterproof paint on the heads of nails, screws, self-tapping screws;
  • primer, putty;
  • re-priming due to the fact that drywall strongly absorbs moisture.

The same operations are performed when coating concrete surfaces. A special primer for the concrete base has been created. It is desirable to apply it in several layers. Also use acrylic or universal. Instead, they use a practice-proven solution – water-based paint with the addition of PVA glue.

It is important not to abuse the glue, as yellowish spots may appear. If the finishing material is supposed to be applied to a wood surface, the primer is done carefully. When gluing, observe the temperature regime. The air temperature should not fall below 10 degrees Celsius.

If the room where liquid wallpaper is used is damp, it is better to varnish the surface after drying.

After applying with a special tool – a construction board, a paint roller, a plastic float, a spatula, a spray gun and even a gun with a compressor – this material fills in the remaining bumps, cracks and roughness.

The nature and quality of the tool will determine the direction of laying silk fibers, other additives that create relief. Before starting work, it’s a good idea to “experiment”, determine which texture created by the tool you like: one-, multi-directional or circular.

The fibrous texture is achieved only by manual application with a plastic trowel. The thickness of the coating varies from one to three millimeters.

There are no problems of accurate spreading of glue and pasting of complex relief or joints, pattern matching, losses when cutting strips. In addition to savings, the seamless coating method enhances the aesthetic effect, which is much easier to achieve than when working with roll types.

Benefits of liquid silk wallpaper


  • In favor of the choice of liquid wallpaper, their elasticity also speaks. If you use them in a new house, you do not have to be afraid of shrinkage of the structure. It won’t affect the coverage. In addition, this material breathes, it is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture.
  • Do not fade under the influence of sunlight, absorb sounds, retain heat, do not accumulate dust and do not absorb odors. Pets cannot scratch walls. Surfaces may be dirty or otherwise damaged. But with such damage, it is not difficult to restore the coating.
  • The part of the wall cleaned and re-treated with granules dissolved in water after drying is no different from the rest of the wall space. When pasting with rolled wallpaper, the color of the restored part is brighter and the harmony of space is violated.

For possible corrections, the remains of liquid wallpaper are stored in a closed container in the refrigerator.

  • With indisputable advantages, silk liquid wallpaper is suitable for use in any premises – a residential apartment (bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom and toilet), exhibition, concert halls, offices, retail premises.

Due to the hypoallergenicity of liquid silk, it is advisable to use it in medical, children’s, and sports facilities.

Disadvantages of liquid silk wallpaper


  • It is undesirable to allow walls covered with silk liquid wallpaper to come into contact with water.;
  • The time of complete drying is from 12 hours to three days. The technology of drying liquid wallpaper is fundamentally different from working with paper. Since the applied solution is aqueous, air circulation is necessary for drying, sufficient ventilation of the room, so windows can be opened, at low temperatures it is appropriate to use artificial heating;
  • Despite the ease of care (you can lightly “walk” on them with a vacuum cleaner, wipe with a soft sponge or rag, but in no case use a hard brush and cleaning products), in the kitchen and in some other rooms they accumulate unwanted unwanted plaque that is difficult to wash off;
  • High quality implies the corresponding cost of the material and work with it. Liquid wallpaper has a different price, which depends on the composition.

The composition distinguishes liquid wallpaper silk, cellulose, silk-cellulose.

Silk is recognized as the highest quality. The cost is higher (the higher the quality of silk threads, the higher their specific composition, the more expensive the product), due to the practicality of the product, durability, lack of reaction to sunlight and preservation of a given color. Even the disadvantages of this material turn into advantages.

What rooms do you want to use them in?

This depends on the color scheme. In municipal, state institutions, a calm, neutral color is chosen. In offices, in order to emphasize originality, the specifics of activity, create an optimistic mood, a contrasting solution is possible, the use of bright, but not overwhelming, annoying tones.

In apartments, houses, everything depends on the lifestyle of the owners, their interests, hobbies, temperament, and the purpose of the room. For bedrooms, paints are not used that activate a person, encourage activity, wakefulness.

Does it have to be wallpaper ready to be applied, or do you want to add your own textural, color or other changes to it?

This question is especially important if the customer wants to give the room an original design, harmonize the texture of the finish with the shape of the room, lamps, furniture, flooring, wall and other decorations.

Do you buy material for painting or not?

If painting is supposed to be done, they think over the type of dyes in advance, how many dyes you need to buy.

What is the volume of space pasted over? How bright are these rooms?
