I'm redecorating the house and done two bedrooms no problems, washing walls off the glue, filling with powder filler and paint over with Crown paint. Started on hallway, all the same routine but used Dulux natural hints. Oh my God it was a disaster. By the time i finished downstairs, upstairs were cracking and peeling in quantities i couldn't image. So i scrapped off, filled painted again. Some cracking gone, but lots reappeared. So i used diluted undercoat to seal the walls, thinking they weren't sealed originally, filled and painted with diluted first coat of dulux . Looked ok, so i went over with second coat and cracking came back in full force. I scraped it again, sealed and filled and painted with diluted dulux but to compare, i used Crown left from bedrooms next to it. What i noticed is dulux dried and flacked almost instantly over filler. Crown is still drying out on filled areas and NO cracking or signs of peeling! Has anyone experienced it before? As most of the hallway is basically painted now, i have to use undercoat everywhere and then go over with Crown... Just hope nasty dulux doesn't lift it in the future... Appreciate any ideas as to why it happens?!
