I'm after some advice on painting some new plaster coving. I'm looking for an eggshell finish & I've just completed a mist coat with emulsion.
The eggshell paint I have is Duluxe (for metal & wood) this was the only eggshell paint I could find, are there others? I'm not sure if the paint is oil or acrylic based.
What should I put on for the next coat so that I achieve the eggshell finish?
From a novice decorator, thanks!!
