Lincrusta wallpaper in terms of weight and durability, is like linoleum for the walls and ceilings. It is harder wearing than paper or vinyl based relief wallpapers such as anaglypta and is designed to be painted. Applying Lincrusta wallpaper is different from putting up standard paper or vinyl based wallpapers. You need to cut the Lincrusta panels to the required size and then soak them in warm water until they are malleable before sticking them to the wall using a special Lincrusta adhesive. You need to cut all corners as Lincrusta cannot be applied around corners.
