Used this on badly patchy vinyl silk which had been painted over a badly (if done) primed newish plasterboard wall. It is perfect.

Before You Start
Make sure the room is above 10°c. Open your doors and windows for ventilation and put down dust sheets to protect anything you don't want to get paint on.
Using Your Basecoat
Newly Plastered Walls
Prep: If you've had your wall re-plastered, leave it to dry for 7 days before using your basecoat.
Using Your Basecoat: For new plaster you'll need 2 coats. Give the tub a really good stir and pour some of the basecoat into a tray. Dilute with 20% water and use a brush or roller to put it on.
Once it's dry you can put the second coat on, you can do this straight from the tub. It'll be dry in 4 hours.
Prep: Sand off any flaking paint and give any glossy surfaces a quick sand to help the basecoat stick. If you've taken off wallpaper give the surface a wipe down with sugar soap to get rid of any glue, dirt or grease. Then leave it to dry.
