      Thanks for the info. I've been looking for cellulose wallpaper paste
      and can't find any that list ingredients. We've found starch-based
      wall sizing in powder form, and wallpaper adhesive in a paste/gel
      form. Neither one lists ingredients.We tried the wallpaper adhesive
      in the gel form, thinned with water. It was white, not clear, and
      seemed to lighten the colors. They did hold the pattern very well. It
      doesn't really smell very good, says it's non-toxic, yet recommends
      that you avoid contact with skin and eyes. So....

      Anyone tried either of these? Are these the same as cellulose
      wallpaper paste? The people at the paint store didn't know.

      I've ordered from the ones you mentioned, but was hoping to find
      something quicker without paying that overnight shipping! Was hoping
      Kansas City was large enough to have a hidden supply somewhere. Oh
      Thanks for the help and suggestions.
