    "The bubbles mean there are air pockets in the fabric of the wall, not all the wall maybe affected so you will need to identify all the areas that is bubbling scrape it, fill and sand if needed, do a thing prime coat( water down the paint ) that way it soaks into the the air pockets when it dries then give it the top coat."

    "It's likely that you have painted over wallpaper which usually leaves bubble. I advised you to use specific paint for wallpaper or in case if it's not wallpaper it may mean that you will have to sand down the walls.. It will depend on the wall obviously."

    "If it bubbles this normally means it was damp when originally painted.the only way to deal this is to scrap off all loose paint and paint or spray with a sealer.
    Make sure the wall is not damp or it could happen again"

    "Many reasons, did you undercoat? If not that could be the reason, or dirt under paint or damp..."

    "Hi. Unfortunately without knowing what was on the walls or the condition of them before you put the paint on its very hard to know the actual cause."

    "Yes but first the bubbles need to be removed. Then make it ready for painting."

    "Need to sand the walls thoroughly, get all dust of walls, then where the bubbles appeared you need a couple of coats of zinseer cover stain. Then start your emulsioning . It may be that the arrears affected have previously had different finishes on . Hope this helps. Tony of Decortech"
