When ive had plastering work done in the past ive watered down cheap emulsion for the first coat.

Whats best for new plasterboard, tape and fill?

Did look at the drywall primer but its a tad expensive. Is there a cheaper alternative for the first coat??

How much have you got to do. I use Freemans 555 drywall primer from Belmore. It’s about £40 for a 3 gallon bucket and is great stuff
