You can plaster over artex, its abit harder but it can be done, and it's easier that ripping a whole cieling down and starting fresh, Dont sand it down as it might have asbestos in it, Also you can buy a remover it's like a paint but it cost abit.

If you want to remove the artex go to the project called artex removal and plastering on the website
