Default What caused this?

I am painting some stairs. And the paint on the treads and risers looks wrinkled. It is an old house. I believe that varnish might be under the paint.

looks like my a55 in the mirror to be honest with you. But wrinkling like that is usually caused by a softer finish underneath. Many reason why it could be soft, but that is what causes the wrinkling most of the time. If they put an alkyd paint over varnish it would probably do that because the solvents in the alkyd would soften the varnish and cause wrinkling.

The top coat is water based, but there certainly could be an alkyd under that on top of of a varnish.

PACman, this comment is creating, how shall I say, some disturbing visuals.

If that is his ass then a bit of a nip and tuck might be in order.

LOL @kmp! I'm glad he said "a55" and not something else. Come to think of it though, why is he looking at his bum in the mirror?
