Distemper

I've got a wall with a mix of paint and what looks like distemper...some of the paint is hard to remove...some is flaky (I've scraped the loose off)

Anyone know if it's ok to Zinsser Gardz over the lot i.e not remove the paint where sound? or does all the paint need to be removed?

Don't want to get rid of it mate plastered over it plenty of times once I've used Zinsser Gardz first...just wondering if the Gardz will be effective on painted distemper.

Don't understand? Do you mean you want to paint over the top not skim over the top?

If Gardz is going to create a barrier over distemper then of course it will over paint?

Skim but some of the paint is well bonded to the Distemper...think I will give it a go just Gardz the lot then blue grit...
