Features and benefits
- Enables user to paint over wallpaper
- An all in one primer, sealer and stain-blocker - it obliterates wallpaper print with a smooth, matt, off-white finish. Seeping stains from smoke and damp residue are easily covered with no fear of re-emergence
- Unlike a regular emulsion which can cause wallpaper to bubble and blister, Zinsser Wallpaper Cover Up seals the wallpaper protecting it from the moisture in the paint and once dry, this one-coat system creates a new surface that is easy to paint
- It can be used under any coloured emulsion
- It can be applied by either brush or roller (for best results use short pile mohair or microfibre roller)

Didn’t work for my wallpaper

I read all the reviews for this cover up paint before purchasing, but unfortunately, it had no effect on my walls. Like most people purchasing this, I didn’t want the hassle of removing old wallpaper and repainting. I was hoping of saving myself a lot of time on a small bedroom, but after 3 coats I can see see the wallpaper underneath. The previous wallpaper has a sort of 3D decal and texture to it and I was hoping for a clean, straight finish, but it didn’t work, so will have to strip the wallpaper.
Toxic smell lingered for days, but does a good job

One coat covered the dark patterned wallpaper. So much easier than stripping 'flat' wallpaper. The smell got on my chest for 2 days, even though I had the room well ventilated.
Literally does what it says on the tin!

Doing a big job of redecorating the whole house which is all wall papered up in the hallways, both upstairs and downstairs. I was initially going to strip down all the wallpaper and start fresh but thought the walls might look too plain. We wanted to keep the embossed pattern of the paper and apply a nice finish on top so went searching for a wallpaper primer and came across this gem. It literally does what it says on the tin, brilliant coverage, thick paint to seal up and apply as a base coat. We didn't want to completely remove the pattern of the paper but I think a second coat would have done it. Excellent product and would highly recommend for anyone looking to paint straight over wallpaper.

I bought this paint on recommendation from a member of staff and I do not regret. I have a silky patterned wallpaper that I wanted to paint over as I didn’t ideally want to have to take on a big job at this time as there a list of things I need also would like doing in a short space of time. I am completely happy with the end result. You wouldn’t know the same wallpaper was there, I have good coverage of the emulsion I used. We did a total of 3 coats but well worth the effort. Without the cover up paint no way would we have achieved the end result. We’re pleased anyway.
