Attached are 2 photos. The first is my painting showing buckling. At first, it wasn't this bad. The canvas is Raphael zinc free on a professional art panel from NY Central art supply. The bucking started almost immediately after I finished the painting. The second is the product I used to fix the edges. Ultimately, it didn't work. The buckling has gotten worse even beyond the parts I fixed. Why could this have happened and how can I fix it so the integrity of the painting is restored?

I am not sure I understand the process you used to adhere
the canvas. When you write, “…I used to fix the edges.” Do you mean that the
adhesive was only applied to the very edge of the canvas and panel or was it
applied to the whole panel and reverse of the canvas? I would not suggest the
former as the adhered portions would react to changes in the environment very differently
than sections that were not glued down.
Either way, likely what happened was that the panel absorbed
enough of the adhesive into itself that there was not enough remaining to successfully
adhere the canvas.
As to fixing the problem, Can the canvas be completely
removed from the panel? The answer to this will greatly influence how I respond
to the question.
