Hi all, started using the diamond range from Dulux yesterday, hot day, add around 7% of water added to help consistency. It was quite smooth anyway, though, thought add some water would help. Though as soon as roll paint on walls and final lap the wet edges 3 mins later, literally the paint is coming off and on to the roller.

Painting over a 5 year old painted emulsion wall. Never had a painting problem like this before.

I brought the diamond range for durability though, for some reason its just giving me problems.

Have you guys worked with this product, if so, what should I do ? To prevent this from happening. I stopped painting and sanded the areas, ready to go again but hesitant before I start want to get it right.

Should I add more water, dulux guide states a max of 20% water can be added without effecting the durability chemistry. Additionally, I have floetroel though, unsure weather to use this ? Its white so I thought it may change the pigment colour of my paint.

Please help everyone, I am also keeping my house cool too.

Thanks

Depends how much paint the walls had previously, too many coats and it can flake off.
