House Painting

Last year we had our villa professionally painted. we are delighted with it. We have a new store which, at the time had not been plastered, so they could not paint it. Now we thought that as it is a small project we could paint it ourselves. I remember that the painters used something called 'Astar' as well as paint.

Can anyone explain to me what 'Astar' is and how and when to use it?

All replies are welcome.

Its similar to a PVA adhesive that seals the render, works well.

So we should paint the Astar directly onto the plaster , and paint over this when dry?

Re: House Painting

You may need yo dilute it to a watery consistently. Don't have it too thick or it will peel off.
