we have bought expensive (for us) chalk paint that has hardly any VOC but cant afford to do more than two coats of this paint..its called craig and rose....usually a base coat would be a cheap paint so that the plaster soaks that up. can i use a watered down pva mix? what have other people done in their experience please.
normally we would be using dulux but we cant decamp the litttle ones anywhere while we paint (in the evenings) and i'm pregnant so we dont want any fumes in the house (we are being ultra careful)
so it defeats the purpose of buying the expensive low voc one to put dulux underneath. the website doesn't say what to do but now that alkar has confirmed the watered down pva we will probably go for that!
