To the best of our knowledge there is no paint that will cover this Tracey but these days its not hard to get off either. You can use a product called X-Tex which will dissovle it allowing you to simply scrape it off the wall, You are left then with a wall you can paint or paper. Here is a link to the X-Tex.If you do go down this route please let us know how you get on as it may helpothers.
