    We have had a lot of plastering done in the last year and I have found it really difficult to get emulsion paint to adhere and cover the metal beads.
    So on some new plastering, I had the thought to buy some metal primer in white and spray the beads only first. Thinking that the primer will stick to the metal better and provide a good key for the emulsion.
    Has anyone tried this out?
