how long do you have to wait to paint walls once they have been plastered??

AllieBongo Sat 20-May-06 18:59:04

have you primed them with pva?

TheLadyVanishes Sat 20-May-06 19:16:59

not done anything yet, going to get a plasterer in to do it, pulled off a dado rail and now have uneven wall, whats pva?

So that should just need skimming then. Bloke who did ours said a few days.

I'd just chuck a load of paint straight on 'em. Priming is what you do if you're a perfectionist and think it'll make a difference! Be a rebel - paint it straight away!

you buy a little tin of it and mix with water and the put all over fresh plaster. If you paint directly onto new walls it will just absorb your paint

They do it loads of colours now as well, not just that funny turquoisey colour they used to paint the co op railings with.
