Does anyone know what calcimite (sp) is? My mom said over the phone that i likely ran into that under my 2 layers of wall paper. It is pink, kinda slid-bumpy on one wall, then on another wall there is a paperboard-thick plastery stuff that sort of wants to gouge and come off when i scrape. I am afraid it is hiding something awful behind it. Mom says calcimite will leak thru if i paint.. I bought something called Premium Killz to paint first once i get the paper off, now not sure if i will ever get paper off with this paperboard new stuff?? Help!
(history=100 yr old house, removong paper on a bedroom, removing wallpaper to paint, having all kinds of surprises under the paper - crackly plaster and now pink papery stuff, maybe paneling to patch hole?)
