Why was it any different than any other paper, besides it not being pre pasted?
I don't know that it was different. I think I started out with too long of a piece,(17') it got all kinked up and ripped.Haha.

And I think since the wall is curved, I assumed it was not irregular. So, placing strips horizontally, sometimes the top layed flat but the bottom did not..

I trashed the first two strips and started over with shorter pieces.(10')

Isn't the paper thicker and less flexible then typical wallpaper? I know some of the liner can fall apart if you box it too long. I've always heard it was harder to hang then most wallpaper was other then not having a pattern match.

I guess it depends on the skill of the hanger, I never had any problems with it, although I have only used it maybe 5 times in 25 years.

It sounds like she was hanging blankstock, which is basically just paper, kind of like what would be on the back of paper backed vinyl only thicker.

Yes it was blank stock. I'll never be a wallpaper pro. I think the Lincrusta will actually be easier.

The difference in cost of "cheap" toilet paper and "quality" toilet paper is NOMINAL!
Meh, toilet paper is all the same.

I guess you've never had the dreaded stink finger then. Or the dingleberries.
