Make sure to use cold water when mixing the paste.andnbsp;Hot water will cause the flour to glutenize,andnbsp;which will make the paste difficult to spread.
If the paste is too thick,andnbsp;you can thin it out with a little bit of water.andnbsp;If the paste is too thin,andnbsp;you can add more flour.
The paste will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
If you are applying wallpaper to a plaster wall,andnbsp;you may need to add a sizing to the wall before applying the paste.andnbsp;Sizing helps to seal the wall and prevents the paste from absorbing into the wall.
