I have just finished stripping paper from ceiling. Some of the paint that originally covered the plasterboard has come off with the paper. The paint that is left on the ceiling does not look like it will stay there if I put paper back. Is there some method of removing paint without damaging plasterboard

Try dry scraping can wipe it with warm damp rag to soften it a little, you might be lucky and its a non vinyl emulsion and will wipe off.
Tried dry scraping etc. but the plasterboard is getting damaged. Someone at my work suggested covering ceiling with pva as this might hold paint together. Will give it a go. Thanks for info.
