Ceiling Primer/Paint not Sticking

You will not get any argument from me

If you don't understand why it costs $65 then you don't understand paint. And to suggest that BM paint costs $65 per gallon is just plain silly, and shows that you have never been to a JC Licht store. Super Spec out performs Behr for about the same price.

As far as their Aura line, paint one room in Behr and another in Aura. I would lay money that anyone's customers would prefer the fit and finish of Aura, plus the low VOC, over Behr any day. You can touch up with no flashing. It's a far superior paint.

I mean really, what are you saving by cheaping out on paint?

To the OP, your problem has to do with prep. 90% of painting is prep, prep, prep. After sanding and scraping you need to wipe it down. I wouldn't recommend water, it causes too much delay in the process and the benefit is negligible.

Take a broom and whisk as much dust and debris out of your field, and then, as stated, use a nice bonding primer, like Gardz.

The purpose of primer is to bond to the painting surface and give your paint something to grab. Therefore it is mostly made up of glues and binders, with a little pigment. Gardz is designed specifically for your application. There is also a product called Peel Stop, which works great for paint that is pealing and chalking. I use Gardz a lot and it has never let me down.

Good luck with your project! We've all been there.

I just applied the 65 dollar paint to one of my good clients open hall/stairs.
3 young girls, their friends, 2 springer spaniels, a cat. A dark green ( HC- 98). I am not worried about scuffing, or pigment rubbing off. takes a beating and keeps on ticking. Touches up when it gets needed.
No hesitation whatsoever to recommend and apply this paint in this situation. None. Worth every penny.

I love being able to touch up and have it blend right in.

Well, now ,I will argue THAT point.All my clients spend good money on product,$65 every time? No. Do I spend $65 every time I buy paint for my home,no. Does a can of Behr ever show up on any of my job sites or in my home, NO.

I agree with most of the comments but a good thing to remember about paint is a surface should always be clean dull and dry and paint will stick if the surface is bare always prime with the right primer. In your case i believe the surface was wet to cause all the blistering that i see from that small pic.

Hmm...I was about to post a thread on a topic about this when I came to here. If you want your paint to stay longer, use primer.
