    Can anyone advise please. I've had a senior moment. I've just done the equivalent of putting diesel in a petrol car I think! :eek:

    I've been merrily painting the render on our exterior wall thinking I was using masonry paint when I looked down at the pot and saw that I was using exterior wood paint instead!!!

    Was going on lovely too. I stopped as soon as I realised.

    Does any one know what will happen to my render? If no harm will be done can I carry on using it?

    Thank you for any advice!

    It's an acrylic. I wouldn't think it would do any harm. May not last quite as long but should be OK.
