Painting new Artex

Postby handymann » Tue Sep 09, 2008 7:14 am

Hi, new to this: recently had old stippled artex kitchen ceiling re-artexed (flat) by tradesman.

When dry, painted first thinned coat - when dry paint lifted. tradesman came back scraped off bad areas & re-artexed.

left to dry several days. rubbed down & re-painted - same problem. Help!
