1. Stop feeding her chips.

2. White walls do not stain with oil.

3a. The oil will keep leaching from the wall no matter how much you paint it with emulsion.

3b. Create a barrier to stop the oil reaching the surface of the wall (ie. gloss, then emulsion over the top of that when dry.)

4. Keep her lazy arse off the wall, no matter how cute those arse prints look. Perhaps put a sheet of polystyrene in between in future.

decorators babe to the rescue ,

he says ... ''to kill the stain and stop it bleeding through , give it a couple of coats of full undercoat - solvent or oil based (for the thick folk, on the tin it says wash brush in turpentine/white spirit ) , then it is safe to emulsion,
dont use water base undercoat/primer or it will bleed through''

love hugs & kisses Tina xxx

I made the same mistake.. Left emma leaning against the living room wall whilst her was getting her a different wig. Got distracted and she stood there for about an hour. Now i have a 2inch circle on the wall.. Lol.

I have had the same problem in my living room, the other rooms are all fine.
My dolls stand with foam behind their backs, although many of them still hit the wall with their arses if you don't position them exactly right (fat arses).
My problem in the living room is, I think it is cheap matt magnolia paint or what's underneath, I painted it the same as it was when I moved into the house.
I was trying to be clever and thinking I could do it in one quick coat I just kept putting coat on after coat and it kept going pinker and pinker,
Then later I found out when I was changing a mains wall socket, the original walls under the paper are paint bloody bright red.
In my case I believe that is what I can see. But I will definitely try set tracks idea.



Ignore Marina, this is when you've got problems.

Hi

Mine stand with a memory pillow between their backs and the wall. Also, they are usually wearing a jumpsuit (to keep dust at bay) and Sophie, my JY, doesn't leak oil anyway (probably too tight!).

Oww! Have just been hit!
