paint over non primed plaster


I am putting on a four room addition to my house and the plasters finished up about six weeks ago. Last week I used a Sherwin Williams primer that is made to be used over fresh plaster before painting. However, I found in some small areas (in a few corners and where the ceiling meets the wall) that I failed to put primer on. I found this out when I put up painters masking tape to edge where two colors meet the dried paint started peeling off really bad when I removed the tape only where I failed to prime. In the three rooms where I properly primed, the paint did not peel off when I masked the edges.

My question is how can a remove the paint that does not have primer underneath it so that I can properly prime and then repaint? I have found that by applying more tape and then removing it does take some more paint away each time, but this is painfully slow... The walls in this room are a smooth plaster finish but the ceiling is a swirled plaster. I am using all latex paint.

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I do not get into much plaster, mostly drywall. Can you sand the bulk of the paint off?

I'm planning on sanding the smooth walls, but I didn't want to sand the new plaster swirls.

The best way to do it is to use a commercial paint remover designed for plaster. You'll need to very carefully cover any walls that are already painted and make sure you wipe the plaster down with water afterward to neutralize the paint remover afterwards.

The only other way I can think of would be to scrape the ceiling flat, put another texture coat of plaster, prime and paint.
