I painted my kitchen with semi-gloss paint over old semi-gloss paint. So
far, I only did the cutting-in. The paint is high quality, 100% Vinyl.
The new paint adheres poorly to the old paint. Some areas of the ceiling are
hard and tough but in other areas, the new paint can be stripped off in a
thin layer (like peeling the skin off a sunburned area).
I then used a flat paint over some spots of the old semi-gloss. That was
worse. The flat paint can be scraped off with fingernail.
What can I do? Did I use the wrong paint? Not enough cleaning and sanding?
Do I have to scrape off the poorly adhering paint before I finish the paint
job? Can I use some super-paint that will stick better?
Any ideas are very much appreciated.
