How Well Does Painting "Paintable" Wallpaper Work?

Q: I've been looking at several of the paintable wallpapers.They seem like a great way to add a little visual interest to a wall. I'm curious if anyone has tried these wallpapers before. Can you cause the pattern to collapse with some pressure to the paper? How easy and effectively can one paint these papers? It seems like it could be relatively easy for paint to gunk up in the grooves.
