    Painting New Plaster 1st Jun 07 at 8:09 AM
    We have just had our hall stairs landing plastered.We originally wanted it skimmed but the plasterer who has done it for us,did pva bond first then 3 coats of plaster.He has told us to leave it dry for 2 weeks then paint it in cheap white emulsion first before we paint it its colour.
    Two friends who have had their houses plastered said oh no you have to seal it first with a watered down pva solution or it may bobble????
    Any real advice welcome please ???
