So, we’ve stripped the wallpaper, put on a coat of Zinsser Bin to stop waterstains (from leaking windows) bleeding through, put on a skim coat, and then primed it with a latex primer. Coat of blue paint for the walls. 10 days ago
Now, my daughter wants to mark the wall for sponging purple stripes. I told her to put a strip of green tape (8 day) horizontally, mark off her stripes, and use that as a “story pole”, but horizontally.
Well, she pulled the green tape off, and there are a few spots where the blue paint lifted. We had the trouble initially, but the paint had only been on a couple of days. We gave it a rest, but still the problem.
Did I screw up in mixing the leak sealer and the primer?
What do i do so that my daughter doesn’t think I’m totally clueless??
We can’t put the tape on to mark off for the sponging until I know what’s up.
Oh, we’re in humid southern Ontario. Does that matter??
