ceilings

My 80 year old house was remodeled before we purchased it, but much of the work was cheap and unimaginative. One issue is the ceilings were redone with "popcorn." I would like to put copper tiles over the ceiling in my study since it is a small room. Can I put the lathing over the popcorn, or do I need to take it off first?

If you;'re installing furring strips on which to attach the copper, then you should be able to go over the popcorn with little trouble.
