I've got wallpaper on the kitchen ceiling and want to get it replastered. Will I need to strip it first, or can I apply PVA over it to seal it?

no Sarah the paper will have to be stripped off! otherwise the moisture from the wet plaster will absorb into the paper and both paper and plaster will fall off. :cry:

It's the best wallpaper stripper I know of.

if you really can't face stripping it perhaps you could plasterboard over the old ceiling, then skim with plaster.
