I always size the wall liner after applying. But. it seems the sizing just get's absorbed up into the liner, and I wonder where it went!!! And does it matter if I size or not. Most of the time, I can't see where the sizing helped with the moving of the paper, as hanging on liner can be very nerve racking!!! As the paper just won't move, for matching, etc,

Nay suggestions as to the right kind of size, or what I can do to keep it from absorbing so quickly

I always size wall liner, but feel the size is just absorbed up into the liner, and never seems to do anything.

Is it necessary to size liner, and -or- what is the best size for liner.

Are you using a latex sizing? If you are is it a pigmented one or clear? The pigmented sizing does a better job of sealing that the clear types and should provide you with more slip of the paper.

Hope this helps out.

Thanks. I have used both,, and felt the pigmated one did a better job, so that is what I use. But, sometimes, I still have troubel with sliding the paper. Of course, that depends on how much paste is on the paper, and weather the paste is quickly absorbed by the liner.

Thanks for your input.
