Paint wont take on corner

Tried several coats but paint won't take on forum.

Here is a picture of it.

Any ideas?

It is rusted metal plaster edging bead bleeding through rub down and treat with an anti rust primer before repainting.

Thanks for replying. It's not rust, that's the colour of previous paint.

Then it may be due to grease from hands of clothes built up on the corner, maybe try degreasing with white spirit and wash with sugar soap before repainting.

Is it maybe worth sanding down also?

Just be aware if you go too deep you may remove the galvanising from the edge bead and then you are back to my first post! :wink:
