    The smooth shiny surface of MDF sheet I mean. Its going go be used as shelves and emulsioned, can I just water the first coat down a bit for the primer? It's Dulux Trade Matt.

    Acrylic primer then eggshell or durable emulsion will take the day to day use vs emulsion.

    Although you can just use emulsion but not really the right thing

    Thanks both,

    What's durable emulsion?

    I've got some Bullseye 123, will that be ok?
    Never quite understood the difference usage of Bin vs 123

    Bullseye will work fine

    123 is water based, quick drying, less odour i believe.
