Simply Build It

Hi mate, so long as your paint is not flaking the best thing you can do is to give it two coats of pva and add a couple of handfuls of bonding coat into your first coat of skimming which will build your skimming out enough to make sure that your paint is properly covered.
Hope this helps

You could (instead of the good suggestion from Ross) remove the textured paint alltogether by visiting our artex removal project.
