Is it possible to skim straight over Lyncrusta (was going to use multifinish, PVA put on first), or does it need to come off first?

Cheers, Rob

Its possible, but as with any wallpaper the odds are that the water in the plaster will dissolve the wallpaper paste and the lot will end up on the floor. Don't do it is our advice and see our project on stripping wallpaper.
