Plastering Question

Skimming the ceiling

I am removing very thick paper from the ceiling by using a steamer, although some is coming off really well, its leaving scraps behind, we're hoping to have it skimmed, my question is, do plasterers need a completely smooth surface to skim or can these patches be skimmed over?

Hi there.

Your ceiling will be fine to skim over as long as all the paper has been removed.
The ceiling will get primed with PVA & then x2 coats of multi finish and the end result should look perfect!

Kind Regards
