painting lining paper

Postby vimtogirl » Tue Apr 03, 2007 4:56 pm

Hi. I've just finished lining my bedroom walls ready to paint them. How long sjould i leave them to dry out before iI paint them, and do I need to water down the first coat of emulsion (I'm using farrow and ball estate emulsion) as i've been getting conflicting advice.
Many thanks

Leave for 3 days in a normally heated room. There is no need for a diluted first coat on paper.
