    If it were me id go and buy the cheapest tin of matt you can get to mist coat. I would imagine vinyl would not 'suck in' right... but then im not painter and decorater so....

    matt will be better for a 1st coat. Then if you want a sheen use the vinyl silk?

    The problem with silk is it contains plastic to make it shiny and if the plaster is not totaly dry the paint will fail. use a watered down matt emulsion or mix PVA and water to the consistency of milk and paint the walls with that to provide a stable base before painting or papering

    If it is a skim, it will take 2 or 3 weeks to dry, depending on the weather. If it is full plastering it will take up to 6 months to dry. Once dry a plaster sealer should be used. I wouldn't recommend either PVA or a vinyl paint as it will seal the moisture in, causing problems.

    Wait the 2 to 3 weeks then paint or if it is a full coat of plaster you can get special breathable paint for painting new plaster.

    Contract matt or Supermatt by Dulux is fine. PVA will seal it which is the last thing you want.

    I was a decorator for 25 years and have seen people pealing off the wrong paint, like it was paper, from recently plastered walls.

    Yea.... Ur dont wanna know what we had to scrape off due to the previous tenants painting vinal silk on newly plastered walls!!! :thinking::x it started peeling off in patches the size of king size sheets on the easy bits & tiny pieces that was so hard to scrape off they were as if welded on.. but to make it worse it started peeling off after we had moved in and papered with expensive wallpaper!!! we had to scrap of the paper and every cm of vinal silk paint on every wall in the room and stairs with a stanley knife blade window scraper tool then filler and skim then contract matt x at least 4 coats before final top coats....Took us weeks!!!
