Painting over new texture
Has anyone ever painted new construction drywall with orange peel texture and have their paint coatings peel off in small sheets.
This was my process....
Used top quality eggshell finish as base coat since the inexpensive PVA drywall primer is nothing more than a inexpensive flat paint. I felt I was using a better paint as primer coat with better acryics than cheaper sister product as PVA primer. I placed two coats on wall. In numerous areas, my coatings is peeling off once surface film is broken.
Checked texture and found if I rubbed withmy two fingers lightly, the texture turned to dust like it was sanded. I then wet my fingers and it quickly turn to a white powerded paste.
In certain areas, it peel the texture down to the drywall itself.
I throughly cleaned an area that had peeled off and used a high quality primer. Waited 4hrs to dry. Placed blue tape over area and primer peeled off.
This is leading me to believe that the texture was mixed wrong or something. I firmly believe in the system used but looking for addition direction with experienced examples.
