Hi,

I am currently working on my first dollhouse. It is an Alison Jr. I am hoping to handpaint and illustrate my own wallpaper and am not sure where to start. What paper is recommended? Also wondering if a seal, specific glue is required. I was hoping to make individual entire wall sized paintings (probably with watercolour paint) that will mount to the walls as wallpaper (and won't fade over time).

In the George Mason home, Gunston Hall, the handpainted wallpaper in the dining room is inset into the panelled walls.  If you can find a fine-tooth finish watercolor paper that would look in scale when done, you can seal the finished painting with a mat acrylic aerosol art sealer and hang it with wallpaper paste (I would paste the flat primed wall and gently lay the paper in place).
