Methinks the PVA will just form a skin on the blocks as opposed to soaking in a bit.  The paint will then be sitting on the PVA.

I think I would thin the emulsion out a bit for the first coat. Don't know how big your workshop is, but the emulsion won't go very far, so be prepared to get some more.

Prepping?
Oct 3rd, 2005, 11:06am
 
New w/shop - internal walls are bare thermalite blockwork. Was given a large 'trade tub' of emulsion and was thinking of rollering this onto the walls.

Question - how to prep beforehand - Will it be ok to just mix up a solution of PVA and roller this onto the walls to seal first, then paint directly over the top in emulsion?
