Plastering over artex

Members online

I'm in the middle of plastering my hall ceiling which has artex. Yesterday I applied 2 coats of PVA and a thin coat of thistle bond. The plan today was to apply coat of PVA to bond coat and apply multifinish.
However I woke up this morning and noticed some crazing on a section of the bonding could I carry on with process or does the crazed section need removed and re bonded?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Why didn't you just employ a plasterer this is not a DIY job! Call a plasterer before you cock the whole job up!
It's a small room and have plenty of time on my hands done a few walls successfully and enjoyed the work so thought I would have a shot. Just looking for advice on the DIY section of the forum.
