According to the step-by-step process, it is easy to hang Oversized Wall Art on the wall. Collect tools before you start and determine how to properly hang a large wall painting in the allocated space.
Supplies and Tools Needed
You need to collect some simple tools/consumables to ensure the success of your project. These include:
Scale: Scalable metal tape is a good choice.
Pencil: Use No. 2 pencil or automatic pencil to mark nail points.
Hammer: A common carpenter’s hammer can work, although you can use a nail hammer (interior decoration hammer).
Screwdriver: Electric screwdriver is easier to use than a manual screwdriver.
Photo hangers: Some painting have jagged hangers, some acrylic painting has D-ring hangers or steel wire hangers.
Artist’s tape: Used for double-screen hangers.
Mark: Double screen hanger.
Scissors: Cut off the artist’s tape.
Grade: Use with a painting featuring two or more hangers.
Steps for Symmetrical Layouts
Asymmetric layout depends on knowing the central location of the wall space you are using. This method will ensure that your large canvas painting layout is perfectly balanced. This is especially useful whether you use the whole wall for a gallery or just a part of the wall to build an image arrangement. If your layout is less traditional and won’t be symmetrical, then skip this step.
Step One: Find Center of Wall
The wall space you use can be rectangular or square. The correct measurement term used is the height and width of the wall space you are using. Measure the height and width of the wall space you are using. If you are using the entire wall space, you will need to find the center of the wall and start there. If your space is limited to an area of the wall, you will measure the height and width of the available space.
To find the width:
The measuring wall begins at one end of the wall. Place tapes along the kickboard to measure wall width. For example, you can get 12 feet.
Once you know the width of the wall space you’re using, divide the number by two. So, 12 ÷ 2 = 6 feet.
Measure once more from the end of the wall until you reach the new number of 6 feet.
Mark the middle point with a pencil somewhere on the wall just above the kickboard or circular strip.
You also need to mark the center with a pencil at the top of the wall width.
To find the height:
Measure the wall height from the floor to the ceiling, keeping a straight vertical line all the way to the ceiling. For example, you may get 8 feet.
Divide the height measurement of the wall by two. So, 8 ÷ 2 = 4 feet.
Step Two: Intersect Width and Height Measurement
Now that you have both the width and height halfway points marked, use the measuring tape to pinpoint the precise center of the wall.
Match up the two width marks (top and bottom) by holding the tape measure from the floor to ceiling.
Mark the wall with a pencil at the 4-foot mark.
This is the absolute center of your wall space. It’s the point you’ll use to determine how to place your Big Canvas Art layout. You will measure for your layout from this center point for each side of your picture arrangement is symmetrical.
Partial Wall Spaces
As mentioned, you may not be using a full wall, but a partial wall space for your abstract canvas painting. If open wall space is limited, you’ll need to follow the same steps to get the center of the area you plan to use; just select ending points for space you plan to utilize.
How to Hang Gallery Walls and Groupings
One thing to consider when working with an abstract canvas arrangement or grouping is the space between the painting and the painting sizes. When working with uniform wall painting sizes, you can keep a consistent measurement between your painting so the grouping has a cohesive look. You can accommodate this space between your abstract wall art:
Decide on space you want between your painting. The general rule is 2 inches to 4 inches, depending on the wall sizes and the number of abstract painting.
Proceed with the measurements above to find the center of the wall.
The first picture you want to hang is the one that will be in the center of your grouping.
Once you have hung the picture, measure four strips of painter’s tape the width you desire between your pictures and apply to the wall from the edges of your picture (use level for even placement).
Proceed with the arrangement you pre-planned and repeat the process until all of your pictures have been hung on the wall.
Remove tape and enjoy your wall gallery.
