How're we as a fandom gonna claim all the boys have been made to say things in interviews yet suddenly believe matty meant everything he said, when his mum is close friends with Anne, doesn't make sense.

Wallpaper is a kind of material used to cover and decorate the interior walls of homes, offices, cafes, government buildings, museums, post offices, and other buildings; it is one aspect of interior decoration. It is usually sold in rolls and is put onto a wall using wallpaper paste. Wallpapers can come plain as “lining paper” (so that it can be painted or used to help cover uneven surfaces and minor wall defects thus giving a better surface), textured (such as Anaglypta), with a regular repeating pattern design, or, much less commonly today, with a single non-repeating large design carried over a set of sheets.

Wallpaper printing techniques include surface printing, gravure printing, silk screen-printing, rotary printing, and digital printing. Wallpaper is made in long rolls, which are hung vertically on a wall. Patterned wallpapers are designed so that the pattern “repeats”, and thus pieces cut from the same roll can be hung next to each other so as to continue the pattern without it being easy to see where the join between two pieces occurs. In the case of large complex patterns of images this is normally achieved by starting the second piece halfway into the length of the repeat, so that if the pattern going down the roll repeats after 24 inches the next piece sideways is cut from the roll to begin 12 inches down the pattern from the first. The number of times the pattern repeats horizontally across a roll does not matter for this purpose.[1] A single pattern can be issued in several different colorways.

Project of the day: Printing wooden structures. I thought it would be crappy and boring, so I decided to make it in gray colours to get away from the photo realistic. The layers are made in GIMP as thresholds. Turns out, the result is perfect. I’m really happy! First I printed the background iris style (not blending the two colours to one but keeping them kind of separated until they’re pressed trough the screen). The second colour is blended completely. I have three more layers to print but I think I will keep at least one as it is. I also plan to print the layers separately to see what the effect is. This is going to be fun!
