A great solution to this is to buy blue grit and apply to the walls which will stick to basically anything and gives us a good key to plaster onto

You can use a pva called Thistle Bond-it
This has a grit in to use on low suction backgrounds

If its been painted with lime it needs to be washed down and then glued.

Does the paint have a gloss to it? For non porous surfaces use Feb blue grit. Apply with a brush or roller to required area leave overnight then skim straight on top
