I need to make starch for soaking my strips of material in before applying to the wall as a border. Has someone done this before?
I did my sister's bathroom in fabric, and all I did was get fabric adhesive from Michael's (or any craft supply store). With the room ventilated, you spray on a small amount, then put on the fabric, using a squeegee to keep out the wrinkles. If the room is going to get a lot of moisture, you may want to put on some Scotch Gard. Good luck!

A few years ago I watched a demonstration of using fabric like wallpaper on a painted wall. I can't remember what was used as the "paste". I do remember that when the fabric was removed, there was no mess you could just wash off the wall and it was fine. Does anyone know of this type of decorating technique?
Thank you in advance.
