@Danny asked what ratio I mix these two when overskimming. Depends on surface , slightly glossy then I mix pretty thick bit like tomato soup. If the they are bare porous walls then probably closer to elmlea single cream.
I keep my PVA and brushes ready to go (seen plasterers mix in roller trays and bag up the roller, keep the brush in the PVA it never hardens)

Here's my trusty tub had for years

Full bottle of PVA goes in the topped up with SBR. Lovely to skim over

I tried that once but starting the job on a different day to starting the job meant finishing the job on the day I started would leave me finishing on the day before starting

I buy 300m of cling film wrap then wind around rollers and brushes to keep good for storing. If you wrap tidy you just pull off as roller spins around

You need about 8 “ of duck tape arround your brush handle and loop it around the side of ur tub handle to stop it keep falling in , when not in use

Glue a phone magnet on tub for brush or find one on something like a speaker. Magnets are good to hold trowels while working or transporting in van. I used to use the knife racks but tool magnet strips sold
