English term or phrase: staining
Staining is not recommended.
To cover the corners of the wall simply bend the border to fit the angle.
No need to cut the borders.

manchar, teñir, barnizar??


Explanation:
Context??? Would save contributors a lot of lateral thinking

Staining = manchar (sin querer)

But if it is wood or some other material (is this DIY, home decoration????), and a question of 'colouring' something, it could be teñir (tinte) or possibly barnizar (barniz)

No se recomienda manchar/teñir/barnzar...


Explanation:
These are verbs and the sentence would go like that. However, the noun is "manchado, teñido, barnizado". The difference is the random nature of "manchar". "Teñir" connotes it is done on purpose (staining with a low concentration of paint and more oil or turpentine content) while "barnizar" refers to resins.
