    I’ve used the above named product to help fill in some cracks which I had in old plasterwork. I’m in two minds if I should skim over and paint or use lining paper then paint. I’m just unsure if finishing plaster will adhere to the acrylic as it’s like a rubbery kind of texture. Would I be better off using blue grit? Or would PVA do the trick? Or should I avoid plastering at all? I can’t find anything online about this, any help would be great thanks
