    Hi,

    Hope someone can help me. Can you advise what paint and how best to apply it to a large wall that has been rendered using red sand, cement and lime. The finish is good, but now i need advise on what paint and whether i need to put a base pva on it first.

    Any suggestions are welcome

    It might be better for your post to go into the painting and decorating section. I'd steer clear of a PVA base though. See what the painters have to say.

    no PVA and exterior weatherproof paint should be fine IMO
