    Question Suede paint to cover imperfections

    Our old house has some original plasterboard walls that have had peeling paint at some stage, which has been removed, and the areas were not filled to flush before painting.
    Looking at it I can see why, there are simply way too many bits to do, so I am wondering if Taubmans Easy Cote Suede textured finish would be good enough to disguise the rough substrate, or if I need to go to a rougher textured paint to achieve a satisfactory result.

    I would use the texture. You can still see imperfections through the suede as it is very shiney and pealescent.

    One of Rod's threads describes how to use a roller and thinned topcoat for skim coating an entire wall - might be a better option for you!

    Hmmm, choice is Textured or skimcoat, thanks for the guidance.
