  1. Yes… probably 2 coats… or 1 heavy coat… but use a High Quality Paint… it might be best to try a small area… if it works… OK… otherwise then give it a coat of dry wall latex primer… first, then topcoat…

  2. Yes, you can use acrylic paint over very old walls that have been white washed many times. However, there are some important steps you need to follow to ensure a successful outcome.

    First, you will need to thoroughly clean the walls to remove any dirt, grease, or grime that may prevent the paint from adhering properly. Use a mixture of water and mild detergent for this purpose.

    Next, it is recommended to prime the walls before applying the acrylic paint. A good quality acrylic primer will help the paint adhere better to the surface, provide a more uniform finish, and prevent any previous colors or stains from bleeding through. Zinnser 123 or equivalent will work well.

    When selecting the acrylic paint, opt for a high-quality interior acrylic paint with a little sheen. This type of paint is durable, easy to clean, and provides a professional-looking finish.
