    You thin it with water...how much by depends on the quality of the paint and what you want to use it for.

    i got dulux and put it on coving and it stared to blister and crack, i am going to try crown matt emulsion.

    somebody said thin it down as the emulsion might be 2 thick

    was the coving bare?..or painted with silk?..or dirty/greasy?..if so the paint will definatly flake

    It should certainly be thinned for bare coving
