Want to plaster a wall having removed wallpaper. The wall paper has not completely come off. Am I ok to put PVA base coat and another PVA coat before plastering? Thanks

Have another go at getting more of the paper off with a damp sponge or preferably a wallpaper stripper, let it dry then get a tub of Febond Blue Grit (from builders merchants, Amazon, Toolstation, other brands are available). Paint the walls all over with this, do not use PVA please.

Have applied Plasterers GRIPCOAT. Why do you say no to PVA? Prepping with 25% PVA and applying PVA tacky before laying the first coat is surely an option?

Cheers

Bluegrit will provide a better bond is all.
