    Just bought a stack of rolls for the (new Sept03) kiddies room (From ToysRus as it fits in with the theme (apparently - ask the wife!!)).

    Its all pre-pasted stuff. The destructions on the reverse are for normal paste paper

    Do I just sumberge the Pre-Paste stuff in a trough of water? Does it matter that the face gets soaked? and how long do I leave it to soak?
    soooo many questions on a dull Monday am!

    anyone used it? does it beat paster the wall?

    Cheers Guys.

    If I remember righty,I think it up to 2 minutes,but make sure the wallpaper roll is loose in the trough and not tight so the water cover all the pre-paste area.You will know when the paste is ready you can feel it going smeary with your finger.
