    Default One for you painters and decorators!

    My house is currently being plastered and skimmed, so giving me a smooth finish on top of which I am simply going to paint.

    Someone said to me that rather than undercoating, id be better of getting some normal silk white paint and simply painting the entire house white.

    Then once this is dry, it will be far easier putting my colour on.

    Whats your thoughts on this folks?

    Is this the best way?

    i always use a cheap white base coat, especially onto freshly dried plaster. Not only will you need less of the good quality paint, the colour should be stronger too

    'miss coat' - or is this not needed anymore on fresh plaster?

    I was always led to believe that a diluted white emulsion coat (miss coat) was done to stabilise and then less quality paint was needed.

    Thats the exact comment I heard, although I have been warned off B & Q paint, someone said its so thin you may as well pee on the walls!

    From experience, buying cheap paint is a waste of time and money.

    If possible, look for a paint made by McPheresons, you'll pay for it but you'll use less to obtain the desired effect.

    You need to seal the plastered walls first, or the plaster will keep taking the moisture from the paint. Use B&Q Plaster Sealer or similar.

    diluted PVA and water is what to coat the fresh plaster with , seals it therefore less paint will be absorbed

    B&Q paint is not that bad, but I don't use it anymore as I get my paint from a local trade place at similar price and yet much better quality.

    Sealing the plaster with diluted pva is the best way, any diy shop that sell plaster sealant is basically the same stuff just slightly more expensive lol...
