Painting Over Wallpaper

David V. asked 5 years ago

We have a raised relief wallpaper which we like a great deal but over time, parts of the relief have been gouged out. I understand I could use wallboard mud to fill in these gouges but wish to retain the raised relief the paper provides. There are seams which have come away and would need resealing.

Would I be able to paint over the paper so as to retain the relief? This covers a huge area and I really don’t want to strip the paper and have a smooth surface.
