My GF has painted all my skirting boards, I've found that when removing the masking tape in the bathroom the new paint peels off quite easily. She used standard gloss, the original paint was probably bathroom paint, could this be the cause?What else could cause this peeling?

:shock: That's a bit extreme... :lol:

anyway, it'll all need rubbing back to sound (I use those sponge sanding pads on skirts) wipe off any dust, undercoat and 1 or 2 top coats.

If using oil based then crown next generation

seems to have a good reputation for staying white.

If I may add ... a scraper and particularly a sharp putty knife example: https://www.wilko.com/en-uk/wilko-putty-knife/p/0343147 can help you peel off the paint. Then sand down any remaining paint and the old surface. Use undercoat before your top coat in case you miss what wine~o said.
