painting plaster wall

can you paint plaster walls ? know can i prime and latex it.

Re: painting plaster wall

My entire house is the 1960's swirly rough plaster and I have painted every single wall! I like a bit of sheen so I have used gloss and semi-gloss over plaster and did not prime because I have used self-priming paint. If your walls are smooth, I would use flat paint and if they have not been painted in a while, I would prime so your coats are even. I have never had a hesitation nor problem painting plaster. Go for it, it is only paint. Hope this helps.
