Although seme wa'ipapers now claim a "removable" quality, most of them are somewhat messy. There is a "removing" liquid which you can dilute with water and apply with a wide brush, tot soak and scrape off the paper with a putty knife. It works better than just plain waiter, but it still takes time and more than the promised "one application does it" if there's more than one layer of paper. VINYL - COATED FABRIC. •This, too, as unities ahead of the old oilcloth school. In many ways, this is what you should use as your first try at hanging. It stands up under early, clumsy handling— much pushing and puling to aid just and M. Paste and grubby fingerprints wipe right off. It's toudy scrubbaile and best of all, for renters, it will pull down with no difficulty. PLASTIC SHEETING.

My advice is to forget it unless you have only a smail area where you can handle it much like the lining operation. FABRIC. If you choose to do a waill, a folding screen or window shades in oriental, silk, you're on your own. I'm really a cotton and burlap type. If the material you use wiH shrink, wash and dry it first. Buy ce'Mose paste at a hardware or wallcovering store. Mix the paste in the bathtub. This gives you plenty of elbow room to immerse the lengths of fabric. Measure and out the fabric, allowing a couple of inches leeway. Submerge the strip in the paste and proceed as you would for the other paste-needing LENNOX Residential and commercial ducted systems.

PASTE BRUSH is a flat, sisal-like brush about 10" to 12" wide. You use it to swab the paste on the back of the nonprepasted paper. WALL BRUSH is also a wide fiat brush to smooth down the paper after it's placed on the wall. Used at right angles, it will tuck and fit paper along edges and in corners. PAPER CUTTER. Forget ithis for the money you want to spend. There's no such thing, cheap, that will hold a cutting edge, even though a small job. Use a razor-blade knife or scissors instead. PASTE used to be a bore to mix to get the lumps out of it. It still is, unless you spend a little more and buy a "new, improved" version. It's worth every extra cent. The paste mixes much more easily, adheres better and usually has an anti-mildew agent in it. SEAM ROLLER is a small (usually wooden) wide wheel that you run along the paper edges and seams to press them down firmly. If you don't want to bother, a combination of pounding with the watll brush and the running ithe flat of your thumbnail along the seam works quite well. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Madame V.
