I recently moved into a rented property, that was built approx 2 years ago. The walls were looking a bit grubby, so i decided to paint them.
However, when i have done so, the paint was drying really quicky as i was putting it on, resulting in brush marks and streaks. i left it, thinking it would dry out, however, when i have gotten up this morning the paint has cracked and flaked off!!!!!!!! It is just plain matt emulsion, the cealing was drying really quickly too, leaving marks, but thankfully this hasnt cracked or flaked.
I read somewhere this means the walls have not been sealed, but they have a magnolia colour on them, that looks like it hasnt been decorated since it was built.
I am wondering what to do, whether to seal the walls or whether it wont work with the magnolia colour on them, can anyone help me??
