Thank you for reaching out, yes you can coat Versilux with British Paints Ceiling Paint & Prime Flat. Please ensure the surface is clean and dry prior to any application.

Sorry can't help you , these are technical questions better directed to british paints
Can we clarify which Paint and Prime product you are enquiring about? Is it specifically the Paint & Prime Ceiling paint or is it another Paint & Prime product in our range?
Paint & Prime Time saver series in low sheen white
Hi i need to paint door frames previously painted with an oil base. Can i use this product Prime and Paint straight over the top or do i need to sand first
Provided you give the surface a light sand this should be fine. If the surface is very glossy then you will need to sand back to a matt finish then you can use our Paint & Prime Doors, Windows & Trim over either water or oil based surfaces. Regards, The British Paints Team.
I need to paint over walls which have been previously painted in dark colours, such as reds and purples to a lighter more neutral colour eg: close to white. Would the British Paints paint and prime be a good choice for painting over these colours? Can British Paints paint and prime be tinted to my colour of choice?
