We are finishing an attic room and have hung greenboard (moisture resistant drywall) on all the walls and ceilings. We would like to have it skim coated with plaster for a smoother finish and also avoid the laborious mud-tape-and-sand process. I heard there is a special orange-colored primer that you can apply to have the plaster adhere to the drywall, if it is non-blueboard. However, none of the DIY stores around here have heard of it or carry it. Any advice?

Are they going to use plaster or just regular drywall mud?

We were hoping to use regular plaster - but welcome any ideas.

Are you sure you are going to use plaster as it dries a bit fast for skimming walls?
