Just primed and painted a new ceiling in a bathroom. It's starting to peel in places. We went over it multiple times with sanding, mudding, more sanding,more mudding etc to try to smooth it back out. No luck. And it's only in one particular spot in the ceiling along the seams where new drywall was put up. The rest of the ceiling is perfect.

The pictures kind of show what's happening (hopefully)

If the tape has an air bubble behind it you'll need to cut it out and retape [sometimes you can get by with just cutting and mudding] If the tape is solid you'll need to feather the mud out better. Often defects in the drywall finishing aren't readily apparent until painted.

Not unusual to get air bubbles, wrinkles, etc with drywall tape especially if it wasn't "bedded" in the mud very well. Definitely needs cut out/pulled out of there and redone. No amount of paint/primer is going to fix it.

Interesting. I've decided we can just live with it. It's not as noticeable now as when the paint was fresh. Plus I don't think I can stand to look at another paint roller or putty knife for a while haha. Thanks for the responses!... and good to know for next time :)
