No because when the plastered ceiling is drying out the water penatrates the paper the paper will become loose from the ceiling when you try to paint it will all start to fall off the plaster may be stuck to the paper but the paper won't be stuck to the ceiling hope this helps you
NO . In order to plaster an existing ceiling you will have to apply a coat of PVA. if you do this over lining paper the pva will act as a paper stripper....Strip paper pva and skim [ happy days ] DS Plasterers
The answer to your question is definitely not. The ceiling should be stripped of all paper, sealed with PVA and then two coats of finish plaster applied,then trowled to a smooth finish.
