Painting Walls

I noticed that when I repaint the walls inside my house, the new paint bubbles. Can you tell what I'm doing wrong. The paint is stain with a primer. Thanks

Can you explain what this is?

FWIW, I never use all-in-one products, I buy paint and primer separately.

The paint is mixed with primer. So I don't have to prime the wall and then paint. It's all in one. Thanks

So did you mean satin - as in the sheen - when you wrote stain?

What paint is it?

Fresh paint bubbling over a painted surface indicates some type of contaminate on the wall.

Sorry, there really is no such thing, it's a gimmick some advertising guy came up with to make you think they had a short cut.

Paint is definitely one of those things you get what you pay for. Buying a $20 gal big box store of chepo on sale paint, your going to get a horrible experience.

So the real question, what was the paint on the wall originally and what kind of paint did you buy, we can help!
