Crinkly Paint on Ceiling – Wallpaper Paste Crackles Paint

Digital ImageDigital ImageSee the little bits of crackly stuff on the ceiling in the first photo? And the dark discoloration and crackly stuff in the second shot?

The previous paperhanger did not get all the paste wiped off the ceiling. And wallpaper paste will cause paint to crackle and blister and flake off.

That’s why it’s important to carefully wipe all paste reside from the ceiling and woodwork. Or, better still, use tape or waxed paper or similar to keep paste from ever touching those surfaces in the first place.
