    The ceiling is damp stained - but has been certified dry. The artex has never been painted. Can I put dulux stain block plus directly onto the unpainted artex and then emulsion or is there another(correct) procedure. Ta John

    Yep, it will work the Zampa way. Though if you are gona use Dulux Stain Block Plus (Which is a great Paint made by Dulux), then i would emulsion your cieling and let dry and then coat with two coats Dulux Stain Block Plus. Also, i would use a radiator roller to apply the Dulux Stain Block Plus.

    thanks again guys. Third eye (or Z !)- as the artex has never seen emulsion, should I dilute the matt emulsion.
