1953 Plaster board interior. Paint peeling to plaster. Every wall. Must have been painted while plaster was still hot. Would like to remove the paint. Any suggestions?

Is there so much paint peeling that you would need to remove all that is there?

Yes, every wall. Inside and outside walls. LVR, dinning, hall, bedrooms. Somtimes huge patches, somtimes little. This was my childhood home that I inherited. It was originaly oil. Now 10 million coats of latex. I would like to get walls down to plaster skim again, then seal, prime, and paint w/oil again for a nice smooth finish and soft patina. I've tryed peel away, Orange stuff. I need somthing to saturate old paint then scrape. When I painted a bedroom celing, the latex soaked old paint and it almost fell off in roller sized hunks. I did take that one down to plaster skim and painted with latex. Man......what a mess.

IF you have a plaster on the wall you should be able to use peel away # 1 to remove the paint. You will have to apply it a 1/4 inch thick at least to remove all that paint. You will want to try a test spot to be sure it works.
