How to Mix the Perfect Wallpaper Paste

How many times have you mixed wallpaper paste and it has ended up looking like the lumpiest porridge that even the three bears wouldn’t touch? Well in this tutorial we are going to teach you how to mix the perfect wallpaper paste.

What will I need?

You will need a clean bucket, 1 x sachet of wallpaper paste, something to stir the water and clean cold water.

Step 1

Fill the bucket with clean cold water. Make sure you add the correct measurement of water for your wallcovering. Not too much and not too little.

See our guide below for measurements.

Step 2

Cut the top of the wallpaper sachet ready to pour into the water. Stir the water in a circular motion and pour the sachet of paste in the water whilst you are stirring the water.

Step 3

Stir the mixture for a minute or two and then leave for five minutes to react.

Step 4

Stir the wallpaper paste in a circular motion a couple of times just to make sure it’s the correct consistency and hay presto you have perfectly mixed wallpaper paste ready for your wall coving.
