Does anyone have experience hanging 1/8" polymetal sheets that are 2'x3' on a painted wall, drywall? I haven't used VHB tape on a painted wall before, and just wondering if anyone has had success using VHB tape using Polymetal on a painted drywall wall. I think it can work, if the wall is smooth and straight and you put on about 4 square inches per pound of weight. Sign weighs 5 pounds, so 20 square inches of VHB tape 5952. I am going to put up a sample piece on a wall to see how it will do. If not VHB tape, how would you do it? The client initially wanted standoffs, then backed down when they received the quote and now only want them either screwed or use VHB tape to the walls.
