If you have to hang a lot of wallpaper, here’s a time-saving way to apply paste. Try a manually operated wallpaper pasting machine. Cut your wallpaper strips to length, then fill the reservoir with paste and coat the applicator bar. Place the paper on the bar, close the top, and pull the paper back towards you. This way, you’ll get an even distribution of paste on each piece of paper in seconds.
