Why do they cut thin crust pizza in squares?

The little triangles

Is it better to paste the wall or wallpaper?

As its name suggests, 'Paste the wall' papers allow you to apply your paste to the wall before hanging, rather than to the back of the wallpaper. Yes, if you find it easier to hang conventionally then you can paste the back of Paste the wallpapers. It's still quicker as there is no 'soaking time'.

Does wallpaper shrink as Dries?

Wallpaper is generally hung wet and as a result, it can shrink a bit while drying. Avoid gaps in seams by slightly overlapping the paper when installing. As it dries, the paper will shrink slightly and you will be able to press into place.

How do I stop my wallpaper from shrinking?

Select a type that is less likely to shrink, such as a canvas. Buy more wallpaper than you need. That way, if there are issues and you have to remove a strip more than twice, you can use a new sheet. The more times you apply a strip, the more it is overworked, and the more likely it is to shrink.

Do you cut wallpaper wet or dry?

It is preferred to trim the paper while its wet. Use a plastic spackling tool to use as a guide and "slide cut" along the top, bottom, and any edges. Use a fresh blade with every cut, no matter how small. I never trim more than the width of the paper without snapping a new blade.

Can you sand wallpaper seams?

Gently sand down the seams of the wallpaper so they're not as noticeable. Apply a coat of oil-based primer to the entire surface of the walls before painting. This helps seal the adhesive in the paper away from the moisture in the paint. Moisture from paint can often loosen wallpaper glue, causing bubbles or peeling.

How do you fill gaps in lining paper before painting?

There may be noticeable gaps between the strips of lining paper after it has been hung and the paste has dried. If so, use a flexible filler and a filling knife to fill the gap. If necessary, allow the filler to dry out fully before sanding flat with an 80 grit (or medium grade) sandpaper and a sanding block.
