Natural lime or chalk based paints are the only ones you should use to gurantee breathability and long term curing and sealing of fissures. It is a chemical reaction which makes the lime plaster stronger and less likely to mark clothes etc. No point in sinking the ship...... by using incompatible products.

Many people do not see the benefits to their buildings and health. Well done for using lime plaster.

Do not know about French paint but Dulux super matt for wet plaster is brilliant I used on my wall and used strong tea to take the whiteness off as I need a off white and they only make in white. See if you know someone going back who can bring from Homebase or B &Q
