How well does plaster specific paint spead

I am about to paint newly plastered walls.

I can emulsion reasonably well (Quick enough and even enough) but I cant say the same about mrs kenam :)

I was going to water down some standard emulsion as the mist coat, but I though having bare walls would be a good opportunity for herself to get some practice in, but am worried that the watered down paint will not be as good an opportunity. Therefore will plaster specific paint, such as this (which seems to get good reviews) spread as well as 'normal' emulsion?

It works out slightly more expensive than watered down paint, but it seems much less hassle

Yes it will, and I have just this week witnessed it's use in my son's bathroom - muggins here doing the plumbing, other son plastered the walls. I was impressed with the paint so Crack On (y)
Just a follow up - its good stuff all right - 2 coats of this, then I got away with 1 coat of Dulux trade vinyl matt (except the first wall - always takes a wall to remember how to paint!)

EDIT - Also multiple coats on the walls we decided to change colour on..!
