If you look at the info on this paint it says interior/exterior, but if you look at the detailed instructions on their PDF it says interior only.

If you have used this outside I think you would probably have to remove it before you could put anything on top. Is it practical to put a layer of gravel or decorative chips/bark to cover the yard?

By Yard do you mean an outside yard, if so it won't work because Ronseal diamond floor paint is for interior use only.

I certainly wouldn't use PVA at this time, perhaps a call to Ronseal would be in order.

Hi,

any advice would be appreciated.

Ive painted my yard with Ronseal Diamond floor paint.
1st coat I watered down.
However paint keeps flaking off in sections.
The flooring is uneven in places, just after quick fix as I'm selling house.
My dad says try watered down PVA before paint again.

cheers

Karl
