Wallpaper

From: Jude Fraser <jafraser<-at->

We have been asked to advise the owner of an historic house who
wants to paint over original wallpaper on a dado, of what might be
an appropriate isolating layer. Installing a false wall is not an
option. We have been thinking about an initial layer of thin tissue
applied with starch paste followed by a layer of a heavier weight
paper that will be reasonably resistant to penetration by an acrylic
paint. I am interested to hear of conservators thoughts and ideas on
this approach and any suggestions of papers that might be
appropriate.
