Cracked Painted Wall

Christine Bobinski asked 10 years ago

One wall in a bedroom had been covered with paper, which we stripped and removed and scrubbed of excess glue. Because of a prior painted wall, we applied 4 to 5 coats of BIN primer, to hide the mural. Two years later, the entire wall is cracking like an egg shell. What caused this and what can we do?

You needed to use ONLY a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer (1 coat)… the multiple coats of latex primer that you used also could be causing this… with cracks like this over the entire wall now, probably applying a Texture Paint will hide these cracks… otherwise, I'm afraid you need to have the walls glazed over with plaster, then primed with the above primer, then finish coated with a high quality paint like Sherwin Williams Classic-99 Latex…
