Sticky tack is a soft, claylike substance that is used to adhere posters and lightweight artwork to walls and ceilings. College students use this a lot since it is easy to apply and, for the most part, does not damage the walls or the posters that are hung on them. Sticky tack is sold in packages consisting of several strips that you can break down into pieces, and you can reuse it several times. Although it does not damage walls, it can be hard to remove, especially if the surface it is adhered to isn't completely smooth.

Grasp the poster or artwork by its top right-hand corner. Gently peel it away from the wall until it is loose. Repeat with the top left-hand corner and the bottom corners. Remove the poster from the wall and set it down.
Peel the sticky tack carefully off of the back corners of the poster, using your fingernails to loosen it if needed. Roll the sticky tack into a ball.
Hold the ball of sticky tack up to the remnants left on the wall. Dab the ball up against the remaining chunks of sticky tack on the wall with a small amount of force. It will stick to itself and come off of the wall. If any of it has dried, use a metal nail file or envelope opener and gently scrape the sticky tack off of the wall.
