Paint peeling off new stud wall and feels like latex

Postby Taliesin » Sun May 10, 2020 8:41 pm

Have just put up some new stud work in the house. 1200mm plasterboard with jointing compound, no plaster skim. Primed with a watered down coat of emulsion, followed by 1 coat of normal white emulsion. 1 section of the wall we wanted an accent colour so have put 2 coats of grey emulsion on. Noticed a small bump, looked like a flake of dried paint underneath so picked at it intending to give another coat tomorrow and the entire area 1200 x 2300 peeled off in 3/4 sheets. Back to the white base coat, paint felt like latex coming off but just peeled right off the wall?? Any ideas
