    Evening,
    I'm painting a Versailles planter I've made and want to use some left over Dulux Weathersheild paint for topcoats (x2).
    I don't really want to buy Dulux undercoat or primer (as spec'd for the weathersheild), so is Zinsser BIN 123 ok for this?
    I have plenty of the Zinsser already....

    No.

    Zinsser BIN should only be used for exterior spot priming. I don't know why but it says that on their website. I think you might be confused about which Zinsser product you have. Zinsser BIN is one product. Zinsser 123 is a different product.

    I suspect that BIN isn't flexible enough to deal with the energy from UV light radiation, but I am only guessing.

    Depends if you are willing to experiment. Sometimes it can be profitable.
