Question

I recently saw a show on HGTV where they painted over flocked wallpaper. Does anyone know how this is done?
What if the wallpaper is colored?

The primer is the key to painting wallpaper of any kind.Many problems are encountered by using plain wall paint.You must use one of two products.If bleeding or discoloration are a problem you will have to use kilz or a similar product.If not,you can use a 100% acrylic latex primer and topcoat of your choice.Most bubbles will dry down in time but a test spot is in order to make sure they do.If only a few bubbles remain you can use a hyperdermic needle to inject a very thin mix of paste and water.

Don't use a water or acylic based primer. You run the risk of the water loosening the paper. Then you have a bigger mess.

Use an oil-based primer.
