Gluing the walls requires some practice because you can not really see the applied paste. As you should always use high-quality products for wallpaper paste, we recommend the best-known brand here with a purple packaging. Under "Wallpaper paste xxx Control" a pink colored product is offered. The color is no longer visible after drying, but facilitates the painting enormously.
