I’m hoping the forum's expertise can help me resolve this. It starting to drive me nuts!
So, we’ve had an extension done. Plasterer came in. I left it a week, plaster turned a light colour and looked set (as per internet pics). I then applied x1 mist coat (80% paint 20% water) of white Matt. Left to dry then another coat of white Matt. Then 2 coats of the following; Ceiling - white, 1 wall - dark green, 3 walls - light green.
The ceiling and dark green wall - fine, no problems. 2 of the light green walls have patches of cracking on them, the patches are in the inside of the window frame and in a corner exactly where the walls meet.
The ones in the frame appeared after the first coat so I scraped them back to the plaster or white coat then re-applied the coats is taken off. Then I put a 2nd coat on and now new cracks in the corner have appeared and the previous ones have come back. What am I doing wrong?!?
