I tried all the "clever" shortcuts and found none were effective when painting my garage blockwork. I went back to a 2" brush - it took ages but at least I got the coverage I wanted although it took 3 coats in total!

Are you not better using Sandtex, it hss a higher pigment content.
May cost more, but time is costly too.

Sealing the porous blocks with a PVA mix will help reduce the number of coats !

That is looking rather good, wish I had a garage of that size.

I used an emulsion brush (about 5 or 6 inch wide) and thinned the first coat with about 25% water when I did mine.

Still a long job, but working the brush into the holes and indentations by twisting it round as I brushed helped.

I'm not convinced dear paint is much better - perhaps it has more pigment, but I used cheap B&Q trade stuff and it covered ok.

Little bit of progress. First coat done:



Can just about make out where it's not dry yet at the top. I actually quite like the sort of speckled effect from the breeze blocks where they are really rough. Have now started on the second coat but not too fussed if I still get that effect in places after I'm finished.

Be worth it in the end bud.... second coat goes on easier so hardest part done.
