I’ve struggled with BEDEC products - both opacity and finish (plasticy)
my experience with all acrylic/water based products is prime/undercoat for adhesion and opacity (e.g. Johnstones AquaTec undercoat) then two topcoats of choice

Cheers for the advice I used the barn paint because they said on bare timber just thin the barn paint 30-40% no need for a primer. I’m starting to realise if using waterbased/acrylic paints even white on white is minimum 3 coats. On a dark brown varnished door i wanted to turn white I had to give 1 BIN 3 johnstones aqua undercoats 1 aqua gloss and you could of given it another gloss.
What is the answer?
