750Re: [Marbling] Carrageenan in Kansas City?
- Sep 18, 2001Thanks 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.
