Adding pva to high build exterior paint
I have a large problem exterior wall and have used high build paint on half of the wall. It looks great yet it took 10 tubs at over £80 each, it's proving very costly and looks like it will take up to 10 more tubs. Just need to know if I can add pva to the paint.

Not knowing the manufacturer I cannot comment exactly, however I would imagine paints of this nature would not benefit from thinning. You're best to ring the tech support number on the tin / tub or look up the specification online.
