And I can understand why. The only time we attempted to add a
"self-adhesive" border - to brand new eggshell painted paper, it simply
peeled off. We didn't use PVA but the damn border has hung off the walls in
swathes ever since.
I don't even like borders, I thought it would mean that we needn't be
precious about keeping an exactly straight line between two shades of paint.
It must have been twenty years ago ...
When we put up a paper border, we bought "Border Adhesive" - plenty around
both from Homebase, B&Q and specialist companies. I pretty much think it
was just a very thick PVA glue.
Maybe its not as uncommon as you think.
