I have used this trick many atime.
Buy, at Hd, Lowes, etc, a box of Hamiltons All Purpose drywall mud, not
the topping. Apply a generous amount of the mud to the wallpaper paste
and allow to stay for an hour, or until the paste is soft and comes off
when you remove the paste with a 6' or bigger drywall blade. Sand and
