I am restoring an old house and am repainting the trim rather than stripping it.
all the trim in the house was painted brilliant white and the person who caulked the joints did a very poor job, so I am scraping paint and cutting out old caulk.
Heres what I am finding: the paint is very very rubbery, almost like they painted with caulk. its a high gloss white that was hastily applied (alot of skipped spots, poor adhesion, etc.) over what appears to be unprimed oil paint that is pretty old.
Is that why the paint is so rubbery? I am scraping about 90% or it off (some is well adheared) and will reprime.
Any advice? thoughts ?
