Was hanging some F and B paper today, not hung the stuff for a while, and I'd forgotten how watery their flake paste is. I've not used flake paste for years but don't ever remember mixing it as watery as they recommend it. Six litres ish of water to an average sized packet. Ball's paper is slightly more on the heavy side than others so surprised really and with the mix being so watery I felt it made the paper more soft and prone to tear. Job went fine though so no complaints really, just an observation. Also, always surprises as Balls aren't usually one to miss a money making trick yet they dont sell ready mixed paste. Saying that I just checked the price of the flake and it's 9 quid a sachet that's more like it Balls!
