hi all

Our garage has 3 different walls ie.

1. Brick
2. Plastered Wall
3. Breeze block

all walls are not painted and the newest wall i sthe plastered wall which is about 6 years old.

id like to paint them all White but would like to damp proof the lower parts of the walls first for good measure.

what would be the steps i need to do?

in terms of prep and in which order?

1. Damp proof paint
2. Masonry paint

Plastered Wall:
1. Mist Coat with cheap emulsion Paint (how much to dilute by?)
2. Damp proof paint
3. Masonry paint

1. Damp proof paint
2. Watered down Masonry paint to seal (how much to dilute by?)
3. Masonry paint coat

would that be correct?

also as i am wanting to paint White, what colour should the Damp proof paint be? white also?

Any help much appreciated, as im a bit confused!
