Any tips on getting foil wallpaper off.
I am using the "papertiger/dif" combination but have yet to be able to pull of more than a couple inches of paper at a time. The paper was obviously put on by a professional and it is sticking incredibly well.

well I solved my own problem. Don't use the gel type remover on foil. The gel solution won't penetrate the holes made in the paper by the "tiger". The water-based solution soaks right through. But you still have to take of the foil as a separate layer from the paper backing.
