Ideal base or mist coat on new plaster. Would not use it as a finish coat but on new build or renovations absolutely ideal. On new plaster needs up to 20 - 30% water. Roller, all way. May not look pretty but as a base it's perfect. Very popular in the trade. At 2 for £25 unbeatable
Found this to be very chalky, even as a watered base coat. Screwfix do some straight to plaster paint which is awesome.
In fact got some going free if anyone is near Sk14.
Acrylic primer over plaster every time for me. Unless you want it to dry out through them paint.
Yea I've used this and it's crap.
Have used this against the Vinyl Matt version. This one dries in more off-white while the Vinyl Matt dries in the actual Brilliant White with a slight shine.
Quality and coverage wise it's fine.
Probably looking at 3 coats for bare plaster + dark colours and 2 coats over light colours but that's no different to any other brand.
It's a bit chalky for finish coats, will mark very easy. Also don't even think about putting this on over old silk as it high chance of crazing. Or going crocodile as we in trade call it. Looks like a crocs skin.
Finally, don't use in kitchens or bathrooms it won't handle the steam very good, that's said for a cheap contact emulsion it will do the job.

What do you recommend for bathroom/kitchen for a good price?
I'm an amateur but echo the points above - quite chalky and marks easily so best as mist coat or on stuff that isn't susceptible to being bumped - all our non-bathroom and kitchen ceilings are therefore done in it.
Painted all by bedrooms in it. It’s definitely chalky.
This stuff is horrendous in my opinion.

Ruined my perfect, newly installed living room ceiling plasterboard... Wouldn't use it in my house again if I was paid to! I binned the tubs I had... Wouldn't even have given it away free on a Facebook freebie page, knowing the mess it may make of their house too!

Ceiling still looks a right mess 4 years later as I've given up trying to fix the mess it made now. So just having to continue to live with it!

good for ceilings (2 coats)

used it as a undercoat for walls
I didn't bother adding any water, as the second coat was white silk and wanted it to look even.

Leyland trade durable MacPherson trade durable matt are both pretty good for the cheaper end of the trade market. Nice and flat too which hides imperfections
Is this any good for newly skimmed walls (not plasterboard) and ceiling (plasterboard) or would you suggest something else? I am planning to use Dulux Trade Brilliant White for all after the mist coat on new skim. Thanks
