In a 90 Year old house, plaster walls have spider cracks. They seem to
into the plaster, but may be just cracked layers of paint. I
see a shiny surface
in the cracks, so I wonder if it's cracked paint
on top of an old glossy oil
pain w/o proper prep.
We primed & painted, but the cracks reappear immediately.
contractor skim coated a room & painte, they came back. Not sure
what he used.
I don't want to put in the time and effort of using mesh solutions,
definately don't want to tear out the plaster.
Is hanging wallpaper the best
and easiest solution, or can some paint
or easy roll on type product cover this?
