Wallpaer edge curling


Postby Lazy Larry » Sat Jul 12, 2008 7:27 pm

I have an almost rubbery, very thick, paper on my kitchen walls. It has probably been on for thirty years and had slight edge looseness when I moved in. Emulsioning to cover the horrible pattern has caused the top edge to curl a bit. I have stuck the edge down with border paste, having softened the paper with a hairdryer, and left to dry with a piece of wood weighted by leaning a ladder against it. It still curls after a while. Is there a stronger adhesive I can try? I'm not overly worried about damage if I ever strip the paper as the wall is a bit rough anyway further down.

Just strip it off Lazy Larry and get some fresh new stuff on your walls. It's 30yr old paper dammit... lol
