painted texture
how to remove

If the accessible paint is shedding off so easily, I'd start by removing the texture. Obviously, it is not adhered well to whatever is under it(sheetrock or plaster) Take a putty knife or scrapper and try removing it. Dampen any resistant areas with a spray bottle or sponge. When all is removed and dry, sand the wall and paint. It may be a little messy, but I think the weight of the skim coat is going to pull the loose texture off the wall.
