Why Does Paint Crack?

Painters use a wide lexicon to describe the family of common paint cracks. Examples and causes include:

• Mud cracks. Paint was applied too thick; surface was dirty.
• Hairline cracks. Paint was over-spread; paint was cheap and had low adhesion and flexibility. 
• Alligator cracks. Paint was applied over a wet basecoat or a glossy finish; a stiff coating, such as an oil-based enamel, was buttered over something with a higher expansion rate, like plaster.
