    The wallpaper you are using might not be able to be painted. The paint has too much moisture for the wallpaper.

    Use a soft dry cloth to work the bubbles out as you are putting it up.

    As you paint you are making the paper wet again and it will expand, forming bubbles where the adhesion is weakest. As the paint and paper dry out again they will often shrink back and disappear without a trace. If they don't go away however, then get a syringe and inject each bubble with wallpaper adhesive and gently press smooth. may require a little touching up but better than a bubble.

    After you put the wallpaper on the walls, you need to smooth it out well to remove all the trapped air bubbles. There are wide brushes made for this.
