Painting & Decorating Question

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.

Once you add pva to paint and it dries, it will start to crack like broken glass, specially if the wall have the sun on it
