Now there are a wide range of plaster bonding agents on the market which can speed up the preparation time and provide the perfect key to all surfaces; even the more problematic ones.

Blue grit is an OK sealer and fine to skim on as suction goes most of the time, but sometimes I pva it and when sticky skim just because I know it will pull a bit too much especially on big areas.Made with fine aggregates, Febond Blue Grit is designed to provide a mechanical key to smooth surfaces before plastering on backgrounds such as concrete, plasterboard, glass, glazed tiles and other high-gloss surfaces. You should be ok leaving it 8 weeks before skimming but a coat of pva or even better sbr would be worth it, just make sure to let it dry at least until it is tacky. If nothing else it will be practice skimming but it will probably be alright if the paint isnt peeling away on its own.

Febond PVA is a multi-purpose, quick-drying adhesive primer-sealer admixture ideal for priming and sealing concrete and plaster or used as an adhesive for building and decorating applications. Plastering over smooth and low-suction backgrounds such as glass, glazed-tiles, plasterboard or ceramics? Used microgobetis on some ply on a soil pipe boxing in with fibres in skim and 100mm scrim and was fine still a few years on.Iv never skimmed on it before its completely dry mate so i wudnt meself, iv gritted in mornin + skimmed in afternoon once its touch dry but that was over walls not artex + had other stuff to do, wouldnt fancy waitin around for it to dry. Blue grit, thistle bondit etc is another waste of time and money which offers no benefit over pva/sbr plus it has added drying time, uneven coverage and as you have already stated there are issues with plaster adhesion. Thst said, most paints will peel off if tape is stuck then pulled away so it is not necessarily a problem, just depends how easily it comes away.
