Pasting and Unpasting Wallcoverings

Use the type of paste recommended in the instructions that came with the wallcovering. If no information is given, ask your retailer's advice. Brush or roll the back of the wallcovering with paste. Apply plenty to the edges. Fold the strip (or "book") pasted side to pasted side, that is bring in both edges toward the middle. Be careful not to crease the paper. Strips should be booked to allow for sufficient absorption of moisture and for the wallcovering to become supple. Approximate time is 3-5 minutes. Once again, see individual instructions for exact booking time.
