Is there any more pieces of equipment i could add yes i have a decorating table,now looking for cheap off cuts off wallpaper,then i am off,let the learning begin,whats the best paste,any recommendations on laser levels.
You need a pencil!
Darlic any chance of practising wthi some lining paper in your own house? £10 for a quad roll of 1000 grade in Homebase.
Roller and sleeve also handy for putting paste on. I usually use Beeline or Solvite, but others may have better recommendations.
Honestly, best thing you could do is spend a few days with someone on a wallpapering job, if that’s possible. Have a scout round the videos on YouTube, you should be able to tell whether the person knows what they’re talking about.
But simple cross-lining is the easiest place to start, IMO, and build your confidence (and I am in no way a great paper-hanger).
Keep pressing on
Oh yeah, see you have a plumb bob but maybe a long spirit level would be less fiddly? Or there’s always a laser level, like you say, if you have the cash.
Whats a good starter off laser level.
Looking on Amazon the cheapest well-reviewed laser is the Bosch Quigo Cross Line for £44. Doesn’t come with a stand though, don’t know how easy it is to get by without one!
Don’t have one myself, a level that is, but I’d imagine they’d be handy!
Darlic, nice bit of sticking kit there! Whats the Gras a lacquer for, I know your a fan but dont be pasting with it, lol
You got an apron?
Russ must get myself some decorating overhauls,i will get on the case,Andy told me that when he reviewed my website,as for the Gras a lacquer,i am a big fan,the decorators merchants where i buy my stuff now stocks it,he said the feedback’s excellent.
Whats the best wallpaper paste on market,any other recommendations appreciated.
Try Brewers own brand Albany ready mix- yellow top for lining paper and most papers, red top for heavyweights and vinyls. Their blue top wall primer sealer is excellent with quicker drying time than Zinsser gardz , and would totally go with previous advice to get trained/work alongside another on several jobs before hanging patterned paper for a client . It’s rewarding work but it’s a very different skill set from painting!
a bucket a sponge and a meter rule you will need also
