Painting & Wallpapering/Paint

Question
Repaired drywall muddled and sanded smooth.  Sprayed on primer (zinder water based) and spots
Appeared to be peeling in places.  Sanded down areas primed again and the same thing is happening.
Any ideas?

Answer
What it sounds like is the drywall is peeling off. That often happens when the drywall gets wet and is not sealed.
I would suggest trying "Guardz" or  Zinzer  sealer water base (clear) similar to guardz.
That seals in the damaged drywall. Patch. sand, prime and paint.
That should do it.
