Acrylic paint on mdf
I am in the process of building a frame for a bathroom mirror using primed mdf board. I was told to give the boards 2 coats of primer and paint before gluing the boards to the mirror.
Thinking that the type of paint would not make a difference, I painted the back side, only, with acrylic semi gloss white.
Well, the paint is dry and I can peel it off like sunburned skin. In fact, the paint peels off so easily, at least in a small area i tried, that I can't image how the adhesive is going to hold up.
I am visiting my children and need to complete this project before I leave in 3 days. How do I get the acrylic paint completely off and what kind of primer and paint do I use so that the paint and adhesive will stick?
The mirror is 8'3" x 3'8".
