In reply to removed paneling over plaster walls...What next? by c kinser on July 1st, 2001 06:49 PM [Go to top of thread]

Is it not previous wall papering?

Regardless what it is and why its there. I DO NOT EVER recommend painting over paper. The mositure in the paint will cause the paper to weaken and could release. I would be careful about removing this adheasive and not to to the paper and IF I could not help from this, I would compound in this area so that the paper is not showing.

If you use compound, then it does shrink in drying, so you have to add more.

Use some shrink free compound instead if you can.
