Wrinkling

WrinklingA rough, crinkled paint surface, which occurs when uncured paint forms a "skin."

Possible Causes:

  • Paint applied too thickly (more likely when using alkyd or oil-based paints).

  • Painting during extremely hot weather or cool damp weather, which causes the paint film to dry faster on top than on the bottom.

  • Exposing uncured paint to high humidity levels.

  • Painting over a contaminated surface (e.g., dirt or wax).

Solution:

  • Scrape or sand substrate to remove wrinkled coating. If using a primer, allow it to dry completely before applying top coat. Repaint (avoiding temperature/humidity extremes), applying an even coat of top quality interior paint.
