Paint Peeling

Anonymous asked 9 years ago

House was built in 1894 and in one of the bedrooms the paint is peeling off the walls. So I’ve been scraping all off and their is like a blue paint underneath it. What is causing that?

A hot spot in the plaster most likely.

Visit a local paint dealer, preferably not one of the lumber stores which also happens to sell paint.

Ask their advice as to your remedy. Most will suggest a first coat of shellac followed by an alkyd topcoat or two.
