Paint on new Plaster Like Elastic

Postby Baker360 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 2:50 pm

New Plastered walls done 2 mist coats with leylands trade contact matt white watered down, 2 top coats with Johnstone’s washable Matt:

Went to pick off a bit of grit during the 2nd coat, must have been in the 1st coat and I pulled the paint off. Tiny amount smaller than a pea. Question is when I done this the paint around the hole has stretched like rubber/elastic. Is this normal? Has this happened because the paint is still fresh or has it not bonded properly?

Done have the room before my late shift. Want to know if I need to do anything before I crack on with the rest of the room.
