This page explains the procedure for changing the paper part of a Japanese paper screen. This requires a special kind of paper and glue which is water-soluble and thus reversible.
The glue used to hold shoji on is soluble in water.
The parts of the paper glued to the wood frame are wetted.
The paper can easily be removed if it's wet enough.
Children enjoy making holes in the paper.
Most of the paper has been removed.
This frame is bare and now glue is applied.
The glue applicator has a point on the side which guides the glue hole to the centre of the frame wood.
Use the glue specifically for shoji, which is water soluble and doesn't damage the wood frame when removed.
This roller is handy for evenly applying the glue to the paper.
The paper is larger than the frame.
Cut the edges using a ruler and a sharp knife.
There is no need to worry about the wrinkles in the paper.
After spraying water on, the paper sags.
After drying the wrinkles disappear.
