Many of my paperhanger friends snicker at pre-pasted wallpapers, because they were originally developed to target the DIY crowd. But I love them*, and I’m not ashamed to say it!

They are much faster than papers that have to be pasted by hand, the paste is smooth and thin, and they slide around on the wall, offering optimum positionability. Here is have my water tray and towels laid out on the sidewalk outside a client’s home, and have already wetted my strip. It has been booked and rolled and left to set for a few minutes, to activate the paste and allow for expansion, and for excess water to run off.

I do roll a little extra paste on the wall, especially under the seams and along the ceiling and baseboards, to augment the manufacturer’s paste.

*Pre-pasted paper, that is. Most pre-pasted vinyl is …. crap.
