The man I hired to paint my kitchen and bathroom used latex over oil (despite being told to use oil!) without benefit of primer Some areas began peeling immediately. The oil's color bleeds through. The painter is in jail on an unrelated matter (DWI) and I don't want to live this way while waitin for his parole.
How can I strip the latex? Or should I? Is there something that can be done? Help!
Hi, I accidently painted latex over oil and had the same problem, but mine was on the woodwork. I had to strip it all off with a heat gun-be very careful if you decide to do it this way-wear a leather work glove on the scraping hand because I guarantee you will slip and believe me, that heat gun barrel is HOT!! As far as the oil color bleeding through, have you tried Kilz? We have never had that fail until the woodwork fiasco. We ended up using shellac and then painting. Hope this helps. Deb Filkins
