Paint is cracking on textured drywall ceiling after first painting. Textured ceiling is 20 years old and has never been painted. 3 days After applying ceiling paint it is cracking all over and the paint is pulling away from the stucco surface. Looks like mud cracks.

You will need to lightly or carefully wire brush the ceiling to remove any loose paint. After initial prep the ceiling needs an oil base primer. This should take care of the problem. Now repaint.
