Translucent Stone Veneer for Backlighting Indian Autumn| SKIN Stone Wallpapers 210 x 105 cm

Translucent stone veneers SKIN are an innovative product for special interior solutions. Combined with effective lighting, they will give any space a vibrant character and radiance.

The Chestnut model is a stone veneer distinguished by surface texture, color density, and a very different appearance depending on whether it is illuminated or not. The colors of SKIN Chestnut stone veneers are intensely reddish and brown with a warm glow, and the deep texture is particularly impressive.

Translucent stone veneers allow us to bring the beauty of natural stone into interiors in a new way, making the stone the main feature of any space.

Applications include interior and exterior wall cladding, ceiling cladding, furniture, bar counters, doors, fireplaces, kitchen backsplashes, and more. They are not suitable for flooring in commercial spaces or areas with heavy traffic.

Installation can be on frames or substrates made of chipboard, MDF, metal, PVC, and other plastic sheets or plexiglass structures to be illuminated with LED backlighting or other effective lighting.

Stone surface of SKIN veneers has UV protection and withstands intense sunlight for years. They tolerate thermal expansion/contraction of most common building materials on which they are applied. Impregnated stone wallpapers withstand high temperatures and repeated freezing.

Stone veneers are a creation of nature, so variations in color and texture are an inherent effect and part of their natural beauty. Each sheet is unique.

Where can they be seen?

Key Steps in Installation

Preparation of necessary equipment and materials for installation.

Preparation of the surface and stone wallpapers before application.

Installation, fixing, and grouting.


See detailed information on the individual stages and follow the steps carefully to ensure unique interior or exterior spaces with SKIN stone wallpapers:


When handling SKIN stone wallpapers, it is essential to wear protective equipment: gloves, safety glasses, and a dust mask. Cutting releases fiberglass dust, so always wear eye and skin protection.


Flex or circular saw with a thin cutting disc

Silicone gun


Tape measure, fine sandpaper, and masking tape

Protective equipment: gloves, glasses, dust mask


Store wallpapers horizontally, lying flat, and protect the surface from scratches.

Clean surfaces of dust, moisture, or dirt as wet spots can compromise the adhesive.

Prime the walls.

Lay the stone wallpapers on the surface without adhering to examine the individual sheets and decide how to arrange them according to their texture and shades. It is useful to number the sheets according to the chosen arrangement.


We recommend using CRYSTAL Polymer Transparent Adhesive SOUDAL FIX ALL (tube) – a transparent polymer-based adhesive.

Since SKIN stone wallpapers are veneer, they must expand and contract with the substrate to which they are adhered. For exterior applications, always consider the thermal expansion of materials. Additionally, the adhesive may not properly fix if used between non-porous materials.

Laying and Fixing

Measure the surface and calculate how many full sheets of wallpaper are needed and how many need to be cut.

Measure and mark paper templates to place on the stone wallpaper with masking tape to cut and protect from damage. For curved surfaces, use templates again.

If cutting is necessary, always work from the back of the stone wallpaper to avoid damaging the surface. Stone wallpapers are easily scratched, so increased attention is required during installation.

Immediately clean excess adhesive with a damp cloth.

When joining wallpapers in corner/edge spaces without joints, it is advisable to have a 2 mm protrusion from the front to hide the back.

You can fix both sides with masking tape and after the adhesive hardens, sand with fine sandpaper for blending.

Tips for Making Openings

Creating openings (e.g., for sockets) is easy using standard tools like a drill bit or a tool with a diamond hole saw for dry drilling

Like every beautiful thing and like every natural material, natural stone requires proper care and maintenance.

We recommend: always treat stone surfaces with the right products for natural stone!

Regardless of the type of stone and its location, a single application of sealing agent will save you unnecessary worries and greatly facilitate maintenance.

Everything needs care. Use the high-quality German products from AKEMI, with which we have been working and recommending for years.

The treated impregnated surface does not allow water and contaminants to penetrate.

The protection with a sealer provides resistance against the destructive cycles of freezing and melting in external conditions. Water simply does not absorb when the stone surface is impregnated but forms droplets.

Depending on the type of sealer, it may not alter the external appearance of the stone or deepen its colors. Choose among the following types of sealers:

"Universal" sealer, which does not change the appearance of the stone and protects against water.
"Wet Effect" - a powerful sealer, like the Universal one, but with colors standing out in a more intense contrast.
"Stain-Free" is the best sealer: it protects against water and grease, also without changing the external appearance of the stone.

The frequency of reapplication depends on conditions and the usage of the stone tiles (whether it is flooring and traffic intensity). Usually, AKEMI recommends every 5 years for exterior stone, flooring + wet areas, and 10 years for interior stone (wall cladding).

How to apply the sealer? - It's easy, like child's play. The stone surface must be clean and very dry. The liquid is applied undiluted with a roller, sponge, or brush. If the surface is smooth polished or matte, a second step is required: the so-called "polishing" with a microfiber cloth for 20 minutes after applying the sealer. And we're done.

What cleaning products are used for natural stone? - Some types of stone, such as marble and travertine, are sensitive to acidic, very strong cleaning agents (e.g. bleach). We recommend: always clean your stone surfaces with a pH-neutral cleaning agent.

How to breathe new life into natural stone in the exterior?

In a few steps, natural stone can be restored to its original state, in its full brilliance and aesthetics.

First and foremost is regular cleaning and at least once a year thorough washing with a pressure washer. This is particularly important for our outdoor furniture products (barbecues, sinks, tables, countertops, and pavement tiles).

Once the surfaces are clean and dry, do not forget to apply a sealer.

Tip: Protect your outdoor flooring from furniture that may rust.

For specific stains such as oily spots, efflorescence (cement milk), mold, cement residues, or grout mixtures, silicones, or paints, it is best to contact us directly for consultation. Count on us; we will provide you with the right products to address the issue, wherever and whenever possible.

The durability of natural stone depends on the specific porosity of the stone type and its water absorption levels. For example, the porosity of granite and gneiss is around 1%, while sandstone has over 20%.

The biggest destructive enemies for items, coverings, and pavements exposed year-round are the sun and freeze/thaw cycles. When the stone is sealed/waterproof, you will receive maximum protection and much easier maintenance.

In severe cases of areas with contamination, the non-polished stone surface can be treated with an angle grinder and fine sandpapers. This process removes the top layer of the stone, making it look like new. (The process is similar to sanding wooden parquet.)

Stone is the best friend of the yard and garden. With love for beautiful, natural materials and proper care, the stone will continue to bring you joy for many years to come.
