NY Good Questions: How Should I Apply Tea-Paper?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I came across a picture of a room with a ceiling done in silver Chinese tea-paper, and thought it might be fun to do the same thing in gold on a wall in my dining room.

However, I'm wondering how this would be best applied. Should I go with wallpaper paste?

We will probably move in a year or two, so I don't want to make this impossible to remove, if this isn't the taste of the next owner.

Also, I've been told that you can find Chinese tea-paper at my most art supply stores, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a definite source.

Thanks! Fiona
