Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours. Inspect the wallpaper for any bubbles which will sometimes form once the paint has dried. If you do find any bubbles, use your utility knife and cut a small slit in the bubble. Next, use your wallpaper glue and apply a small amount in the cut area. Once the glue has dried, use and damp cloth to remove any excess. Repaint the repaired area using your topcoat paint.
Once the damaged wallpaper has been removed, you will need to remove any excess glue residue before proceeding. Use your hot water and cloth again for this step. You will probably need to add a bit of dishwashing detergent to your hot water in order to completely remove all of the glue. Make certain the wall is fully dry before going to the next step.
Next, apply the wallpaper adhesive to the back of your patch and place it in the area which you have already cut out. If you are using pre pasted wallpaper, dip it in water and then place it over the the prepared opening. Again, be sure that the pattern lines up with the surrounding wallpaper. Smooth the patch out using a ruler removing any bubbles that may form.
6. If you are left with stubborn glue residue take your sandpaper and sand it away. You can start with a rougher grit sandpaper and as the glue is dissolved use a finer grit sandpaper. Prepare to use several sheets of sandpaper because the glue will begin to cling to the sandpaper and lessen its effectiveness.
