Flaw of the Day – Yellow Streak

Digital ImageHow the manufacturer managed to get yellow ink streaked down the surface of a black & white wallpaper I can’t imagine, but here it is.

This ruined a full 8′ drop – but… I was able to save the paper, keep it wet and pliable, and use it on a shorter wall.

Because this was printed on a non-woven substrate, it did not expand excessively during the 40 minutes it sat waiting for me to finish the wall I was working on. A traditional paper substrate might have stretched more, mismatching the pattern, or shrinking when it dried, leaving a small gap at the seam.
