    Evening

    I have a bad condensation issue in the bathroom - soon to be improved with a new window and extractor.

    However I have an issue with the paint peeling off to the plaster on the ceiling and exposed walls that aren't tiled.

    Obviously there is a slight difference in level. So when I repaint it will look odd.

    Excuse the pic! But that's what happens...

    Is the only way to get a neat finish taking off all paint back to the plaster?

    I thought about feathering the edges with sandpaper but not sure that would be good enough

    You certainly have a damp problem, but my guess is that the ceiling was never primed.

    Possibly it did start to peel off as soon as I cleaned of the black damp areas.

    That area of ceiling is directly above a very hot shower that is used up to four times a day.

    I intend to use dulux bathroom paint when I do it and a base coat - just watered down emulsion.

    In your position I would be suspect as to the stability of the remaining paint, and it would probably be a noticeable height difference with a silk paint - I'd strip it back if at all possible.

    Regarding your repaint, I've not used Dulux's bathroom range, but I have used Zinnser permawhite - and it's excellent.
