    I wish to paint an internal brick wall. I guess Masonary Paint will do it but it says "for Exterior use".

    What are my options?

    Thanks.

    A laymans guess, but as long as it doesn't say "for external use ONLY" then I would've thought you'll be fine.

    Thanks, I suppose I did not ask the question too well. :oops:

    What I meant to say is MUST I use Masonry (exterior) paint or can I use "normal" emulsion presumably having treated the wall with somethiing like PVA????

    i've used normal paint on internal brickwork.

    got some el'CheapO white stuff from B&Q to prime the bricks (couple of coats) then some proper thick stuff over that - jobs a good un' as far as i'm concerned - been like that for a year or so and no flaking Etc....
