Deep, irregular cracks
resembling dried mud in the dry paint film.
• Paint is applied too
thickly, usually over a porous surface.
• Paint is allowed to build up in corners upon application.
Remove coating by scraping
and sanding. Prime and repaint. Mud-cracked areas can also be repaired by
sanding the surface smooth before repainting with a quality latex paint.
Latex paint is likely to prevent recurrence of mud cracking, because it is
relatively more flexible than oil-based paint. Quality paints reduce the
tendency to mud crack. They also have very good application and hiding
properties, which minimize the tendency to apply too thick a coat of paint.
