Vinyl matt painted on sealant
vinyl matt paint has been applied over acrylic sealant. After a couple of hours it started cracking and peeling. Will i make matters worse by trying to peel the paint off of the sealant ?
Hi there, painting over sealant is never a good idea for the reason you've already discovered! I'd actually probably remove the sealant altogether tidy up the paintwork, then re-seal with new sealant. Hope this helps.

Good morning, from what you have said, it appears you are trying to paint on top of the acrylic sealant. Emulsion will not adhere to the sealant hence why it is cracking and peeling. You will only be able to paint up to the sealant line. I hope this helps.
