So, in my stupidity and total lack of any handyman-type qualities, I thought it would be a good idea to hang a bunch of posters in my apartment using “funtak”. (That blue putty-like goo, which goes by many names).
GonzoGal has been begging me for a long time to hang them properly. For some reason she’s not fond of posters falling in the middle of the night, blue grease stains and rips developing on posters, and the like. So we’ve finally found some nice cheap poster frames, and are transferring the posters over, but there are now large globs of blue goo on my walls. What’s the best way to get rid of them?
I’ve tried rolling up a little ball of the stuff and repeatedly sticking it to the remaining blob on the wall, pulling away a bit at a time, but this takes forever and occaisionally rips a chunk of paint and drywall off of the wall. (not going to be fun to fix when I move.)
Even when I get it mostly off, there’s still a bit of residue that will probably have to be painted over.
