Hi all, I've taken on a wall in a kitchen which needs lime plastering ,we've stripped off the old damp proof render about 4 ft high and applied a base coat of lime render but after that height the render is silly hard and impossible to remove as its clay lump underneath and is just falling apart, so my question is is it possible to lime plaster on top of old multi finish plaster which is painted so we can get the same finish on all the wall, I've asked the question on Google but cant get a definite answer seems like a bit of a grey area, thanks

i thought it was impossible to fit a damp corse to a clay lump building ?
i would pva the area of multi finish and reskim using regency lime finish , from Mike Wye, regency finish will be slow to set may even need a trowel the next day.
