    Hi,

    I've stripped all the plaster from my walls and it's going to be a while before I plasterboard and as it is still very dusty, thought about painting the walls until I plasterboard.

    What is the best paint to use? I guess I need something that PVA glue will also stick to when I put up the plasterboard?

    Is there anything that would also double up as an insolator?

    Thanks

    Be carefull here "toxictoad" cos if you paint brick, then there is a chance that the dot & dab procedure may fall off as the paint will not hold up the boards. Yes, PVA dries in clear.

    crystal ;)

    just use the pva to stifle the dust.

    a couple of diluted coats.

    job done.

    Sorry maybe I'm not following correctly:

    You're using PVA to stick the plasterboard to the brickwork? :confused:
