    Looking to tile onto my wall which is a plaster finish and has silk paint on it. How should i go about this? Score the paint back to plaster? Try and remove all paint? Any special prep to use? Any special adhesive to use?

    Sand the paint with 60 grit sandpaper.
    Dust off and then use APD Bal.
    Careful not to splash it on anything, especially your eyes, that stuff sticks and stains anything but it's the best primer for tiling.
