finish coat over painted walls
You can coat over paint. The only issue is that it takes more time to dry because of the paint not allowing the compound to saturate into the wallboard.
Again, YOU CAN compound over the paint. Painters spackle over paint all the time. We have been coating over paint for 20+ years with ZERO issues, other than drying time.
About 6 years ago, our company got called in to 're-do' / go-over...an entire house, that looked as if it were never finished coated, before the original paint was put on. Coated over all the painted walls, re-coated again, .....sanded, etc...
& it came out great.
