The question i get asked frequently is how this is done? I am using a plain lining paper hung vertically for the purpose of this demonstration! and of course realize that when using a pattern wallpaper that this would need to be matched . the idea was to use this situation where the walls were a bright orange colour and that this would and does show up well on film.

how to wallpaper around a light or wall socket first turn off the power supply, loosen the screws just enough to allow the wallpaper to tuck behind the socket body, apply a small amount of paste around the socket areaas you will be lifting the paper away to trim, hang the paper over the socket loosley and locate the four corners and mark accurately with a pencil then pierce a hole with your pencil between the four marks, carefully cut to the very edge of your pencil mark then pop the socket through the opening you have created use a plastic vinyl smoother to press the paper flush to the edges of the socket then mark the sides with a pencil a few millimetres onto the socket body trim the four pieces of paper off allowing enough paper over to tuck neatly behind the socket body but without too much paper going into the void, smooth flat the area around the socket with your hanging brush ensuring no air bubbles are present, use a seam roller to flatten together the joints and then screw back the socket securely but not too tight as the paper is still wet, remove all paste residue from the socket with a dry cloth or sponge and you are done.
