    Hi

    I'm hanging wallpaper and have run into an issue - I used a pencil to draw a plumb line on the wall, and when I laid a sheet of paper over the line and used the wallpaper brush to brush it down, a small amount of paste came up through the seam, carrying some pencil lead with it. Now instead of a nice more or less invisible seam, it sticks out like a sore thumb because it looks like someone has drawn a line on it.

    Is there anyway I can get the pencil lead out of the paper? Or am I faced with removing those two bits and doing it again?

    Thanks,

    Ackoman

    Have you tried dabbing it with a damp cloth?
