    Hi Expert DIY

    I am looking to paint over a mural as per picture rather than removing the paper. – there is lining paper all over the wall – so I do understand that removing the paper would be the best option, but I am worry to damage the wall if I remove the mural wall paper and been advise to consider the brand Zinsser

    ttps://www.zinsseruk.com/product/

    A bit confused with the range on offer - can you advise which one might be a better option please?

    B-I-N

    BULLS EYE® 1-2-3

    BULLS EYE® 1-2-3 PLUS

    COVER STAIN®


    The color I am aiming to paint the wall is quite a light color and currently aiming to something around these tone

    A mate who played in a band and styled himself after Jools Holland decorated the living room with a large mural of a sax and keyboard.
    Come time to move, the agent suggested painting it out. He spent the next ten weekends painting and every weekday he watched the mural slowly come back through the paint.
