Paint pealing off artex ceiling
I painted an artexed bathroom ceiling with bathroom paint as it was over shower.However it started to crack and peel off.What do you suggest as it would be a nightmare to peel it all off.If I do have to take it all off can I use a hot air gun?Julie
Try and re-fill the area with a good water proof filler and try to make a patten in it. once this is done paint the ceiling with a water base primer at first and then go on top with the bathroom paint.

Try re-filling then once dry, stabilise it with something like 5% thinned oil based undercoat, once that has dried, x2 top coats of bathroom paint.
