I have removed old paint from a wall. About 60% of the paint has been removed, but in spots the original layer of paint remains. I want to retexture the wall with an orange peel texture. Can I put the texture on top of the single layer of paint as well as the paper on the drywall.

Or must all of the paint be removed before texturing.
Thanks in advance,
Bill

A little bit confused here. First, the way I read you , is that there was a textured paint already on the walls, ( or why else would you remove it) and now you have 60% of the paint removed, and some kind of paper on the walls. Do you mean the drywall surface?,, that paper type texture or paper as in left over wallpaper? The bottom line is to get the wall smooth as possible,old paint or not. if youre re-texturing it as you mentioned no need for perfection. If the left over old paint is adhearing to the wall, and can't be scrapped off and the "paper" is just the drywall paper ( still solid ) you can use a latex primer over it all , and then retexture it.
