Silk Paint bubbling

Postby Pymster » Thu Dec 24, 2020 10:28 am

Hi, please help. I have had a wall plastered a fee months ago. I put 2 mist coats on it a while back. I then painted it with dulux white silk and it came up lovely. The wife changed her mind and wanted a light grey silk which we had mixed at b and q. As I was painting the wall the paint started to bubble and peel off. Please any ideas what has happened and a remedy please. The walls were grease free and clean by the way. Many thanks.

Hi pymster
The most likely cause is incompatibility of the solvents in the paints. Presumably the grey paint was not Dulux or was a solvent based rather than water based product.
