I need to paint my recently skimmed ceilings and saw the above in screwfix for £16.95 for 10L with excellent reviews.

The alternative was the leyland trade contract matt for £15 but I've seen loads of different dilution rates sugggested.

Therefore I'm leaning towards the screwfix bare plaster paint- I was going to use Benjamin Moore ceiling paint for the final coat as it's meant to be super flat. Any thoughts?

Leyland trade contract matt diluted at about 20% is the way to go..for the mist coat at least..

Why don't you use the full BM system if you want a premium finish. I know you can use cheaper options but their option may improve the finish even more.

Thanks chaps, I never find diluting works v well as it separates out.

I don't know what else BM do which is suitable- regal maybe? Would work out fairly pricey mind you.

screwfix have the Leyland contract white on offer, two 10l drums for £22, in their five day price crash which ends tomorrow night. I find it great for ceilings.
