I was stripping wallpaper from the walls in my flat. When stripping the top it peeled of a plastic-y layer of paint from the cornicing.

I am assuming this is gloss.

Will i have to peel the rest off? Is there a faster way than picking it all off? And what should I repaint it with is emulsion or eggshell ok?

Thanks in advance

Derek

:welcomeuhm:
The "gloss" in all probability is silk emulsion. The concern is that it might bubble up (and peel off) when it gets wet when you paint it. Is this an ornate cornice or just a fairly plain corner cornice? A photo would help.

You either peel more of it off if it is doable, or you sand the edges you got to feather the paint and then fill between paint and cornice to lose the step from no paint to paint. I would use normal emulsion on it, but if the paint is not holding well perhaps a coat of zinsser peel stop might help to stop more painting lifting.

as above pics would help, a bridging primer (say zinsser 123) may help.
