Anything's possible, but I wouldn't recommend it at all. (Actually, I wouldn't recommend the suede paint on a painted wall) The weight of the material as well as the moisture could loosen a seemingly secure wallpaper.

The best thing to do is remove that wallpaper and then paint. If you don't remove the wallpaper, seal it down with oil primer and then topcoat.

Suede Paint has become one of the most popular faux finishes in recent years. It is timeless and beautiful. It works in almost any living space, from bedrooms to living rooms and offices.I recommend perfecting your technique on a practice board before beginning on the walls.

Same opinion! Remove paper first and then scrape the wall properly before applying paint for better finishing.

Re: Painting With Suede Paint


Dont do it, the proper way to deal with this is to remove the wallpaper. If you paint over it you will be able to see it. This type of paint is not cheap so I would do the right thing and remove the wallpaper and prep the drywall properly before you apply anything to the walls

first off ......NEVER do faux over wallpaper it kind of defeats the purpose... why put one texture over another??.......... what youll end up with is suede wall paper type of finish and i dont think thats what they intended . if your customer wants ''suede'' give them suede........also the wallpaper could eventually fail. remove the paper and do a proper job

Prime paper with oil ,sand or skim seams if you have to, apply your suede, you'll be fine.
Oil is used to create a impenetrable surface. Gives you a new solid surface to do whatever you need.

Not when you can't be sure of the bond from wallpaper to wall. Don't be a hack, just remove the paper first.

Re: Painting With Suede Paint


There is a small hack in all of us..

Sometimes its better to just hang new drywall.
