does new plasterboard need pva before applying plaster? i seem to pva everything (surface) before plastering is this ok to do

also if im applying bonding over artex that has been painted with mat emulsion will this need pva before applying the bonding?

New plaster will not need pva prior to skimmimg
And as for your artex might be a good idea to bond that, just to stablise any loose or defective areas .
Hope this has been of help to you
