Begin by selecting the space in which you are going to place the Ceiling Rose. Next, use a knife to scrape away any paint from the selected surface, this will provide you a clean environment to place the bonding agent onto. Lay the masking tape around the spot where you are installing the Ceiling Rose so that you can prevent damage to your surrounding paint. Once you finish the masking tape process you can then apply the bonding agent. The bonding agent will help the Ceiling Rose stay in place on the ceiling, the bonding agent should take an hour to dry and it should be specifically made for Ceiling Roses and other ornaments.

Once the bonding agent dries you can actually install the Ceiling Rose, begin by removing the Ceiling Rose from its packaging. If the Ceiling Rose has an instruction manual with it remember to reference anything that you might not be sure of. Some variations of Ceiling Rose have screw holes in a star shaped pattern, if this is the case you will need to use a power drill to secure the Ceiling Rose in conjunction with the bonding agent. If you have one of the cheaper Ceiling Roses the odds of the thing needing screws is very slim, and you should be able to get by with just a bonding agent holding the ordainment in place.
