So, while we're on the subject, I'm curious how many painters these days hang paper also?

I learned to hang during apprenticeship, but there has been so little call for it in my market lately that my skills are rusty.

Is paper hanging considered part of a painters skill set? I know removing it is

I've never hung it. Judging by my gift wrapping skills it's prolly a good thing. However I'm really experienced at removing it.

I have never hung it, or been trained to do it.

I also have no desire to learn how.

I do have to remove a bit on a house Im starting tomorrow, however.

I wish I were in a market that would make me want to learn it. Don't want to do commercial hanging, and the residential market here is almost non existent.

These days you're better off having good painting skills. I've been getting more wallpaper jobs this year than in years past but it still only accounts for about 25% of my business ( not counting all the paper we take off only to prep and paint). If it were not for a few designers, I don't know where it would come from. Even though I am a paperhanger, many of my customers know me as their painter.

I'm a paperhanger, who also happens to paint.

When I pull out the brush and roller, its like a day off for me.

That's how I used to feel about hanging paper. I really enjoyed the occasional paper job as a nice break from painting. It can be Zen like, and relaxing... Although I have had days where I felt like pulling my hair out trying to hang cheap pre pasted.

I haven't hung a roll in at least two years. It just hasn't come up.
