Hello, I need to know what kind of paint to use for my staircase? I want to paint over the existing enamel paint. I tried a patch test of latex and it is just peels off over. HELP PLEASE

If the acrylic/latex peels of it means you have oil based enamel on your woodwork. If you want to use acrylic then you will need to prime with an oil based undercoater before the acrylic or you can just apply an oil based enamel over what you have now. You should sand the woodwork lightly to aid in adhesion no matter what paint you use.
