painting newly plastered walls

I have used Dulux plaster sealer on my newly plastered walls. Do I now need to use a coat of diluted emulsion aswell prior to a top coat?

it wouldn't do any harm but no you don't have to. you may find it easier to water down slightly 1part water 10 part emulsion and if you've time and patience it will look better by building up with thinner coats, but as said it isn't necesary.
