I want to smooth out a bathroon ceiling which has been painted with textured paint (not artex). It is the 'emulsion with bits in' kind of stuff. The paint is in pretty good condition. Can I plaster over this with finishing plaster (will I need to PVA?), or do I need to re-board it, or do I need to strip the paint. Any advice will be appreciated.
As long as it is sound u can do but might be better to unibond first dont use it straight out of the tin tho reduce it first and skim it when its tacky look at the instructins on the tin as to what the reduction is Hope this helps
