Wrinkling

Back to interior problems...
A rough crinkled surface caused by a drying interference and forming a wrinkled skin.

Wrinkling probable causes - applying the paint to thickly. Painting over an insufficiently cured primer. Painting during extreme hot or cool/damp conditions will cause a drying interference and the paint film will skin rather than curing properly.

Wrinkling solutions - the wrinkled layers must be totally removed by sanding/scraping. Stubborn underneath layers may require liquid paint remover. Bare areas need to be primed and allowed to dry. Spread uniformly and avoid painting in hot direct sunlight or when temperature is below 50°F.

Primers and Interior Finishes - Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Ask your Muralo dealer for the best Muralo interior paint for your project, in the color and sheen of your choice.
