We have an art project where we will be pasting paper sheets with outlines
on oilboard. The oilboard will be first screwed onto a construction fence.
Then after 10 days we will have to remove it. We can then simply unscrew
One of the planners of the project suggested this powdered paste:
The construction site can supply us with water from across the street. But
this powder isn't available locally, and is more expensive to have shipped
But why this powder? There seem to be many wallpaper pastes available. And
why not a premixed in 5 gallon drums? We will have 2,200 square feet of
regular paper to paste. So the paper will be a lot thinner than wallpaper.
And hopefully the paste won't absorb into the paper too much.
At my local Lowes I find two 5-gal options. I see one is for all weights,
and the other for medium to heavy weight. I would want all weights.
Then the next question is what thickness nap rollers do we want. We plan to
put the paste on the oilboard, then unroll each 20"x60" sheet onto it.
