    Pre-mixed/small quantity wallpaper paste? 2nd Oct 17 at 5:34 PM
    About a month ago, I papered my hallway, with paintable wallpaper.

    I'm now getting ready to paint, and noticed one corner, just over/alongside a doorway, didn't look right, so I've cut it out, so I can fit a new piece.

    The replacement piece is ~ 6"x15", and I'd rather not mix up a whole batch of paste, for such a small job.

    Can you get pre-mixed and/or small quantity wallpaper paste?

    This is only £1.50 and you'll have stuff you can store in case you ever have to relay a strip. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-ROLL-WALLPAPER-PASTE-SUPER-STRONG-STICK-ADHESIVE-ALL-PURPOSE-5-10-Rolls-/141880041714?var=&epid=1504299405&hash=item2108b5a 0f2:m:mdhKwD0EC9Bq45_XIPbC1mw

    Thanks guys.

    I've just got a tub of Border & overlap from B&Q.

    Cost a bit more than Ebay or £land, but at least I've got it straight away.
