Translucent Paper

Digital ImageCan you see the faint outline of the pattern below showing through the white background of this paper? I can.

You can often see through wallpaper when it’s wet. But, my theory is, if you can see through the paper while it’s dry, you can see through it when it’s dried on the wall.

So if I have a paper that I notice is somewhat transparent, I use extra care to prevent anything showing through from underneath.

I like a white pigmented primer on the wall for that reason. I also make sure to not make dark marks on the back of the paper or on the wall with my pencil.
