smoothing roller (syn.) (SELLENS: 315)
description

Hard roller approx. 3-6 cm wide, used to press the seams between the strips of wallpaper; with relief paper, a soft wallpaper brush is used for this because the roller in front of the seams presses the relief flat. The working part can be made of plastic, metal, wood, bone or ivory (1).

To smooth the wallpaper on the wall, there are seam rollers that are wider and covered with a soft material such as felt or flannel (2). [MOT]
