Anaglypta Wallpaper – Textured Wallpaper With Beautiful Embossed Designs

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Anaglypta wallpaper is an embossed paintable wallpaper that is usually quite thick and heavy. It is printed with raised designs and is usually ornately textured.

Being a heavy paper anaglypta is not a ready to hang wallpaper. It requires a strong adhesive and more drying time than regular wallpaper. It can be used in it’s natural state which is white but the beauty of anaglypta is that you can paint it to look like copper or any faux finish for that matter.

If going for a faux finish it is best to use layers of colour. Start with your background colour and wait until it dries then lightly brush or sponge on the second colour highlighting the raised or embossed design. Metallic paints also look great over anaglypta wallpaper.

Any colour paint can be applied, it’s just a matter of hanging it first then allowing it to dry completely before applying paint.

Anaglypta looks great in heritage houses and can even be used on the ceiling. If your walls are worse for wear then a good solution could be anaglypta wallpaper. Another advantage is an anaglypta wallpaper can also be repainted if you ever decide to change colour schemes.
