Why does my silk paint look patchy
Patchiness usually happens if you don't use enough paint, or apply it unevenly. Using a touch more paint, and painting in small sections one at a time, usually does the trick. Also, rolling in a grid fashion will get you an even finish too. But, sometimes, changes in the gloss level leave things patchy.

Why is primer bubbling on wall
Bubbles after priming could be the backing paper on the drywall that is highly absorbent, can cause primer bubbles when water-based primers get it wet. Sometimes latex patching compounds can cause the same bubbling. For example, a customer had a crack in a ceiling that he filled with joint compound and tape.
Why is my paint cracking when it dries
What causes paint to crack? Insufficient surface prep is the main culprit behind crack attacks. Over-thinning your paint or applying it too thinly can also cause it to split.

Does bubbling paint mean mold
