    Hi all
    I've been reading seeing the forums for a while, v trying to get a clear view on which paint to use on an interior garage wall made of standard bricks.

    There seems to be different views based on priming or not, or whether the paint is ok for that brick type.

    I've settled on the Sandtex white, pictured here, as it's mentioned the most across different posts.

    Does anyone have a view on how well this will work on standard builders bricks, like this:

    Might need 2 coats I guess, based on absorbtion.

    But it should produce a decent, white, breathable finish.

    Thanks
    Shaun

    I painted my garage with bog standard white emulsion
    I watered down the first coat as the bare brick sucks it up
    By the time I finished the first coat, I could start again with undiluted.

    Good advice, I was thinking the same, that I'd need a mist coat first, maybe 20% water in the first coat.
