Question

How to remove a technique I did to my kithen walls


Hi
I'm not sure if anyone is familar with this technique - I painted my kitchen walls with a semi gloss interior paint, after the paint dried I used clear glaze and applied tissue paper to the walls. It turned out beautiful I have gotten many compliments about the technique. I did this about 8 - 9 years ago. The paper on the walls are starting to turn yellow. I would like to remove and repaint. Do you know what would be the easiest way I could remove the tissue paper and glaze from my walls? My walls are made of plaster.
Thanks

Was the glaze and acrylic or oil base?

The glaze and the paint were both water based - acrylic.

That's a toughie. I would apply a coat of Zinsser Gardz to "lock down" that paper. (It is the product to use if you have damaged drywall facing.) Next, skim-coat with Joint Compound to level if you have ANY texture at all to cover. (i.e. seam lines in the paper, wrinkles, etc.) Prime, 2-coats quality paint. (Paint-store products only... no Big Box stuff.)

Have you tried misting it with water, letting it sit, and see if it can be scraped off? Perhaps contact mfg. of the glaze for some advice. Skim coating is not for the novice in my opinion.
