I have resorted to the age old solution for damp on a couple of walls

based. It remains to be seen how it compares to a candle wax/white
spirit/polyfilla mix which I have used in another area. Wallpaper sticks to
it just fine and, mineral wax being very hydrophobic and flexible, I have
So then what will it do? Presumably evaporate to the outside, same way it
