Hi I had a decorator strip some wall paper and then paint the wall with dulux matt paint. Its been a week and I've noticed mosaic like cracks all over the newly painted wall. Any ideas on what has caused this and whether it was the decorator or the paint being faulty? Thanks
Hi notadiyexpert. Most likely a reaction between the wallpaper paste residue and the paint - did the decorator wash down the walls before applying the paint? Leave it for a few more weeks and see how bad it gets. Regards S
