Removing a Self-Adhesive Paper Border Steam Stripper not Working

Postby albybuc » Mon Feb 01, 2016 4:08 pm

Hi. Does anyone know how to remove a paper border of the self-adhesive type, please? I have pulled off the top layer of the paper but a steam stripper has no effect on the glue. It is stuck onto emulsion paint which I don't want to damage too much if I can avoid doing so (although, I've already pulled the paint off in several places in my futile attempts to shift the border!). I guess I'll have to experiment with various solvents, which is going to be messy and smelly, unless anyone knows of an easier way. Thanks.
