I used warm soapy water and a good hard hand squeegee ! Regular putty knives can gouge the sheetrock . You can probably find a good tough plastic putty knife though ! I would squirt the soapy water on the paper and let it soak in a little and use the squeegee to scrape the edges up and pull large sections off . The squeegee would then scrape the wet glue right off ! I had a real hard plastic squeegee from putting woodgrains on cars ! 3M makes them . You might look at a Autobody supply shop and find a couple . They work super ! I did three rooms that way and the retextured and painted them !
Yes there is, all you need is spritzer bottle and a wide putty knife and a device known as a "paper tiger" which puts small perforations into the paper to allow water to penetrate to the backside of the paper,once it's soaked it will scrape off quite easily.
