Hi I am painting an old plaster wall in an older home. I have noticed
that the wall was painted 8 months ago with a primer and now some
areas are completely peeling to the plaster---- I realize this could
be calcimine but it could also be a moisture problem... If I put on a
primer with anti-calcimine feature i.e. B. Moore- if it turns out that
it is not calcimine--- will the oil based primer (thats B. Moore
Product) still be beneficial for the moisture problem????
Calcimine would dissolve when wet, so doubtful that is what is peeling.
You NOTICED it
was painted 8 mos ago, or you painted it 8 mos ago? If you have a
you need to fix it before you paint again........no primer is going to
stick to a wet surface
and not blister or peel. Is it a bath or kitchen? If conditions were
damp when it was
painted, and there is no leak, then the solution is to get the space
nice and dry and then
use a primer and paint labelled for use on plaster.
hi there. It was painted 8 months ago by another painter. Now it has
peeled right down to the plaster. This is a bedroom, brick house...The
plaster is dry not wet..and when it was painted the walls were totally
dry no moisture.
