    I watered down vinyl matt paint and used it as an undercoat on top of fresh plaster thinking it was matt emulsion. I have not done a second coat yet and would like to know if I should continue or fix it and if I should fix it, how?

    If it is of any helps the colour that I would like to finish with is a cream or off white colour and a feature wall of moss green.

    Thanks

    It will be fine. You thinned it out so there should be no problems.

    If it's trade quality paint, slightly thin it. If it's the retail stuff, it's ready to use.
