    I'm trying to paint our hallway. I have bought Dulux Diamond Matt. I have sugar soaped and washed walls, leaving over 24 hours before painting. I have started painting but find the paint is rolling off the walls. Same thing happens if I use a paintbrush so I now have clumps of paint on the walls.
    The previous owners were super organised and told us all the paints they used before we moved in. They painted the walls with Dulux Realife Tough Matt Almond White.
    Anyone have any ideas on how I can get the paint to stay on the walls? Thoughts and suggestions greatly received. Thank you

    Are you watering down the Diamond matt as well?
