Forum Title: Painting Grasscloth Wallpaper
So I had a customer come in today and ask about painting grasscloth wallpaper. I know it's been done, but wallpaper hasn't really been in style at any point in my professional career, and grasscloth was never that common anyways. Thoughts on how to do it? I told her my base recommendation would be to prime it with a good quality latex primer and go over it with a decent waterborne paint. I'm worried about how much primer it'll drink (and how much of a PITA it will be to apply). I figure water based on both for the flexibility. Anyone actually done this before?

Any type of wallpaper should be primed with oil based primer, if painting over. Grasscloth would bubble beyond belief, if primed with latex primer.
