    I used everything she said but the scoring tool broke so I scored the layers of wall paper and paint with a utility knife. I ended up scoring the plaster wall in the process but that's ok because my main goal was achieved; to get all the wall paper off of the century old plaster walls. Now I have to repair the plaster before it is primed and painted.

    This is a huge pain in the ass. The idiot before I owned my place literally glued thick canvas paper over like 5 layers of paint and random wallpapers. I just said screw it and tore down most of the plaster then replastered it.

    I am removing paper that has been in my home before Noah's ark was built! since I rent my landlord sees nothing wrong with it. I have been living here for 25yrs. I can't look at this atrocity for one more second! 😣 I have gotten the paper. but the problem is that the plaster came off with my first pull. About 2 feet. is there any way to compound this and sand when dried? HEIP!!!

    My wallpaper is down to the brown paper beneath over plaster wall (t least i assume it's plaster, very vulnerable, can scratch with fingernail). This is the difficulty: I've tried steaming it but even the tiniest amount of pressure on the plaster causes it to score. It's like how is this possible? I swear it seems like the paper is bonded and fused with the plaster.

    Thanks for the tips. We are taking wallpaper off my 100+ year old family home and wasn't sure if there was any difference in technique in taking wallpaper off drywall vs plaster.
