Driftweed said:Peel it as much as you can, skim w/mudd, try again. Your rags are dirty. Wash the caulk off them. Actually, go get new ones. This was something pointed out to me in a training class I took in january. Just because you wash your rags does NOT mean you are removing residue from caulks. They may appear clean, but its there.
One thing I did notice though is the primer had that tacky feel to it when I went to apply the first topcoat the next day. You know the one when latex paint does not cure and just remains tacky forever. Did not really think a lot about it at the time but I am wondering now
Driftweed said:Hmm.. killz is usually a good brand. I would definitely talk to the BM dealer about whats happening. Personally, i have zero experience with that brand. Generally, paint adhesion issues boil downt to contamination. And usually that comes from equipment like dirty rags/brushes or a poorly cleaned surface. Seems like you did good using new rags & sanding. Maybe two different paints in brush/roller? You got, me bud. Seems to be a good topic for my next visit with my supplier.

A LOT of primers will fail a tape test, it's one of the more common problems around. Even on brand new drywall. 10-15 year old paint can have some surprises of its own - I've seen paint that was "cleaned" with some cleaner that absorbed into it, then I had a heck of a time getting it clean enough to get paint to stick. Who knows what may have happened with your project. If you're just painting over paint, you're better off to just use paint and skip the primer.
