    Why not use a scrubbable (Crown Trade) or diamond (Dulux trade) paint instead?

    Polyvine make waterbased varnishes for covering emulsion

    eg Dead Flatt Varnish- https://www.brewers.co.uk/product/HC4115Q

    Personally, I would apply 2 coats with a foam roller. I don't trust one coat products.

    Be advised that clear varnishes may change the final colour though. I recently painted a "mustard" coloured section of the client's hallway just below the dado rail and the emulsion became slightly darker. On the next job, I used the same varnish over a jasmine white colour and it was fine.

    Do make sure that you hoover the walls first. Any pet hairs or fluff that is left on the wall will be visible through the varnish.

    Thanks for the responses. Great tip ref vacuuming to get rid of the crap. I'll go for a tack rag, my nozzle is very dirty!
