NOT glue, it is adhesive or better yet, paste:yes:I recently had a hallway and bathroom painted. the painter didnt remove all the glue when he took down the old wallpaper and painted over it. It looks terrible. How can I fix it.
For our neurotic friend Chris, who happens to be wrong, wrong, wrongNOT glue, it is adhesive or better yet, paste.
I will repeate this as many times as necessary.
It is not a hard concept to understand.
IT IS NOT Glue !
Wheatpaste (also known as potato paste, flour paste, rice paste, Marxist glue, or simply paste) is a liquid adhesive made from vegetable starch and water. It has been used since ancient times for various arts and crafts such as book binding, decoupage, collage, and papier-mâché. It is also made for the purpose of adhering paper posters to walls and other surfaces (often in graffiti). Closely resembling wallpaper paste, it is often made by mixing roughly equal portions of flour and water and heating it until it thickens, or by smearing cooked rice into a paste. A similar flour and water formula is taught in elementary school minus the low heat simmer as an easy substitute for ready-made adhesive.
Hence, paste is an adhesive. An adhesive is a glue, thereby paste is a glue :whistling2::whistling2::whistling2:An adhesive, or glue, is a mixture in a liquid or semi-liquid state that adheres or bonds items together. Adhesives may come from either natural or synthetic sources. The types of materials that can be bonded are vast but they are especially useful for bonding thin materials. Adhesives cure (harden) by either evaporating a solvent or by chemical reactions that occur between two or more constituents.
