Bulls-eye primer is peeling

I'm trying to prime an uninsulated interior wall in my bathroom. Tried the Bullseye stuff and it's peeling off in spots. Anything i should know ? This is a plastered wall by the way.
This was covered with plywood and wall papered before i got to it.

Theres a lot of reasons why it could be coming off. I would remove as much of it as possible, sand it, and seal it with an alkyd primer. Also look into Zinnser's Peel-Stop, I think its called that. I have never used it, but heard good things about it.

hmm, never heard of that. Must be an American thing?? I'll look for it.
I called a paint shop today and they think that it's something about the bricks not curing properly when built many years ago (119 years ago), and they recommend wall papering with a paintable paper. They said its a common problem with the old houses like this.
I dunno, have to think about that paper thing. I hate wall paper.

Sorry, didn't know you weren't in USA. Paintable paper is definitly a viable option. Search for Roos International on google, they have a wide assortment of lining type paper.

Better yet, click here for a good source of 'plaster on a roll'. This is an excellent resurfacing product.
