Can I put Tatouage on textured
Absolutely!! It works just as
well as smooth surfaces. You just need to take your time
to get it into all of the nooks and crannies. My own
home has extremely textured walls and it worked
beautifully. You may get a few hairline cracks here and
there, but that just adds to the natural, hand-painted
Can I reuse
Because Tatouage is a fine
quality, high-resolution reproduction of my artwork, it
is meant to permanently adhere to the surface for a
"hand painted" look. It is not a stencil and cannot be
Can I clean
Yes. I recommend that you
lightly wipe the artwork using a damp sponge if need be.
Do not soak it if the design is not sealed. Treat your
Tatouage as if it really were hand painted. Do not scrub
it or use harsh chemical detergents.
When do I
need to seal my Tatouage?
You should seal your Tatouage
with several coats of clear acrylic spray when it is
applied to semi-gloss surfaces, furniture, floors, floor
canvases, high moisture areas or any generally high
traffic area. You do not need to seal it when applied to
walls that are painted with a low sheen paint.
will my Tatouage last?
Your Tatouage should last
indefinitely if applied according to the directions.
Remember that sealing it will prolong its durability.
any surfaces that Tatouage is not intended for?
The main thing to keep in mind
is that Tatouage is not waterproof. It should not be
applied to sinks, toilets, showers, bathtubs, etc. It
can be used on walls and tiles in bathrooms, but should
be sealed to protect it from high humidity.
What is the best surface/paint to
apply Tatouage to?
Tatouage will not stick to a
high gloss paint. Tatouage is best when used on a flat
or satin paint. If you have a semi-gloss or high-gloss
paint try using the water/vinegar mix or using a light
grain sandpaper to the surface you are applying the
Tatouage to (make sure to wipe down your wall to remove
Can I put
my Tatouage on mirrors and/or glass?
Yes, but because you cannot
seal on mirrors and glass your Tatouage may not last
forever. Be careful not to scrape the artwork and it
should last for quite some time. I put it on a mirror in
the bathroom 2 years ago and it still looks great!! No
wear at all!
Can I put
my Tatouage outdoors?
You can put your Tatouage
outdoors, but should definitely put a good amount of
outdoor polyurethane on it to protect it from the
elements. Also, remember to clean the surface thoroughly
before you apply the artwork.
Can I put
Tatouage on top of my Tatouage?
Absolutely! I designed all of
the artwork to be used either separately or together. I
love to add flowers on top of the leaves, intertwine the
vines with the wrought iron scroll or create any
combination of looks. Layering the designs only adds to
the look of realism. Use your imagination and create
your own one of a kind mural!
What if I have trouble applying my
Tatouage should be a very
simple process. If you find you are having trouble, wipe
down your walls with a 70% Water, 30% Vinegar mix. This
will not take off your paint.
How do I
remove my Tatouage?
Again, treat your Tatouage is
if it really were hand-painted. If you are changing your
décor, simply paint right over it. If it is on a mirror
or glass you can scrape it off or use nail polish
remover. Another method that works is tape. Place the
tape over the design, press firmly and try to pull it up
with the tape.

before applying your artwork is to make sure the surface
