- Wallpapering question
Sizing was for plaster walls. Plasterboard doesn’t need sizing as it doesn’t absorb so much liquid. If you do anything use a proper wallpaper primer which will assure an even colour, make sure the paper sticks and make it easier to strip one day.
Edit: disclaimer – I prefer fibreglass “renovation” paper with a coat of paint to finish. Really easy to use and last for years with a coat of paint now and then to freshen it up.Posted 4 years ago
Well what does it say on the lining paper? Most wallpapers suggest using a wallpaper primer, I’d be surprised if it doesn’t unless it’s a “renovation” paper which is designed to cover horrors and goes on with just a thick layer of glue. I assume you’ve bought some big tubs of ready-to-use glue, if not go out and buy a couple. It goes on with a roller, doesn’t run, makes adjusting easier and sticks like the proverbial to a blanket.Posted 4 years ago
So that’s three suggestions so far and contradictory advice:
1/ proper wall paper primer if anything – read the manufacturer’s instructions
2/ traditional sizing
I say a tub of ready-made-glue, twang says that runny old stuff you had to make up hours before that got everywhere.
