    "When you notice gaps between your wallpaper seams, you can use paint a color that is similar to the one on the wallpaper and cover small gaps. This only works for small gaps, but it is far simpler and less potentially damaging than re-doing the wallpaper"

    "Hi, yes it is possible only if you would like to paint after the wallpaper, I did several times before painting, just needs to fill the gaps with good filler, and then slightly sanded, and paint over.
    Otherwise fill the gaps with no painting you will se the marks.
    Thanks"

    "Yes of course.
    But in order to determine the correct repair please specify few factors such as how big are the gaps, the quality of the wallpaper and wall/plasterboard, what is the expected end result after the repair, and is the wall going to be painted afterwards?
    Are the gaps caused by poor workmanship or the wallpaper is peeling off due to old age ?
    Happy to provide a solution if the above info is known .
    Thank you"

    "Hi, sorry it's not possible if it's finish paper, pattern etc, if it's lining paper or a paper that your going to paint over then you can fill and paint it but it isn't a proper job really, but possible.
