hello again guys,I am wondering if you can plaster over painted plasterboards on a ceiling.
When i had taken the false ceiling down it revealed painted plasterboards and i was just wondering if you can plaster on top of paint if i put plenty of pva onto them.
Thanks . fourstrings

Dont want to sound like a broken record as its been mentioned a lot lately but use bonding agent as opposed to pva particuarly if paint has a silk finish. Pva works fine on really old paint but anything with a shiny finish just wont let it in. Had to use pva today on painted wall as my bonding agent was frozen solid from freezin weather last week and was waiting for ages :mad: for it to get tacky and just doesnt give me as much confidence as the bonding agent does on these surfaces.
