    Default Horse Hair Plaster Paint Prep

    Recently purchased a 120 year old house with wall papered, horse hair plaster walls. After removing the wall paper, what is the best way to prepare the walls for the paint not to be absorbed into the plaster? I have heard that there may be a special primer OR I could skim coat, sand, then paint.

    Has anyone had any luck with painting horse hair plaster walls?

    Hi,
    On old work, I always play it safe with a thorough cleaning with TSP, then prime with an oil primer like Moore's Fresh Start alkyd, or their enamel undercoater if I'm trying to block a deep color.
