Yesterday, I had some other work done and the workers taped on some of the painted finish. I expected I would have to do some touch up, HOWEVER, I did not expect the paint treatment to peel off i sheets down to the Zinsser!

What did I do wrong and what can I do now to fix it?

In your situation, it's probably taking longer to cure. Semi takes longer to fully cure and with the glaze over it, more time is needed for it to breath out the chemicals.

Good neww, I think. The stuff only peeled around the tub where it was so hard not to get the paint and glaze too heavy.

I'm either going to scrape and re-do the treatment, or get me to the lumber yard, choose some nice trim and just trim it out.

Then he has a bathroom that is customized just for him!

As always, thankyou all for the advice and suggestions.

Trim is nice


Hey, if it will work and is easier than a re-do on the faux...

I was able to find some nice-sized,,,I think it is called shoe mold,,,at a good price. It reminds me of quarter-round except that it is a little more rectangular. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, the curve mimics the curve on the tub surround [recall, it is a fiberglass all-in-one tub & surround. I've primed it with Zinsser and plan to use a high gloss oil-based enamel since could be splashed with the shower.

Good job. Most people just assume that it's 1/4 round.
