We are currently building a new home and decided to veneer plaster instead of the traditional drywall. The plaster work has been completed and we want to paint. The plaster contractor said we could paint as soon as the condensation was gone from the windows which indicates the plaster is dry and ready for paint. This took about 7 days. However, most of the painting suppliers suggest waiting at least 30 days for the plaster to "cure". HELP! If we have to wait 30 days to paint our construction schedule will be seriously compromised. We are considering using Graham Aqua Borne Ceramic paint which contains ceramic microspheres with 100% acrylic resins. They claim we can paint flat finish in kitchens and baths and the cleanability is supposed to be fantastic. Does anyone have any experience with this paint? Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you sure that they use plaster on the walls ? It has been my experience that it is really just drywall compound/mud skim coated over blue board. If that is the case you can paint now that it has dried. In either case you should prime with an acrylic undercoater rather than just a regular latex drywall primer as they are more resistant to the alkalinity in these types of finishing compounds.
From what I have read the ceramic paints are great but I have not had any personal experience with them.
