    I have cross-lined a wall ready to wallpaper.

    I usually paste the wall as well as the wallpaper, so I can slide it into position when it's on the wall.

    Should I paste the lining paper, as well as the wallpaper?

    I'm just concerned too much paste may cause the lining paper to bubble or stretch, or something.

    Many thanks.

    Is the top paper 'paste the wall', or 'paste the paper'?

    If you have enough paste on the paper, then you shouldn't need any more on the lining paper really. Its not going to bubble the lining paper anyway really.
