Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9742041A1] Paint is applied to a surface system as a wall using a paint application system comprising a releasable backing (10) formed of water-permeable paper having a water-release layer thereon. The system includes a decoration layer (12) and a transparent barrier layer (13) disposed between the decoration layer (12) and the releasable backing (10). The decoration layer (12) is formed of a dried paint composition, e.g. a dried aqueous emulsion paint, comprising one or more pigments in a polymeric binder. An adhesive layer (14) is disposed on an opposite side of the decoration layer (12) to the barrier layer (13). The adhesive layer (14) is engaged with the surface to be decorated by the decoration layer (12). The backing (10) is removed so as to enable the decoration layer (12) applied to said surface to be viewed through the barrier layer (13). The barrier layer (13) prevents the adhesive of the adhesive layer reaching an outer surface of the applied layers.
