    "If your ceiling is freshly plastered you have to prime/Miss coat the fresh plaster. There is no primer for that really! You have to mix the paint one part water, one part paint. If you do not water down the paint it will just peel off the ceiling."

    "Trucryl is an acrylic primer which is water based, fast drying and suitable for both non resinous softwoods and hardwoods. It too serves a dual primer and undercoat purpose. Acrylic/Water based primers are generally not suitable for exterior use and are sometimes difficult to sand"
