Hi all, the Forth bridge project (or Our House as it used to be known) is
entering another phase. SWMBO has decreed that the hall - stairs - landing
area is to be stripped of wallpaper, covered with lining paper and then
emulsioned. Great thinks I until I started removing the existing paper and
found the interesting aubergine and purple paint scheme underneath (didn't
you love the '70s?). Problem is it seems like emulsion but with a plasticky
feel to it and in some places where I've used the steam stripper it's come
away with the paper. It now looks like a bad case of "flaking skin" for want
of a better description and will give a crap finish to the lining paper.
Anyone come across this effect before and how do you get the remaining paint
off the wall?
