Traditional an oil based primer would have to be applied so that the latex paint would adhere to the surface. But, with the recent development of what I call "super paints" like BEHR ULTRA - it is possible.

 

I have used the following steps on several occasions:

  1. clean the surface with a TSP solution.
  2. Lightly sand the surface to provide a texture for the paint to grab onto.
  3. Paint one coat and allow to dry overnight before painting the final coat.
  4. Let cure for up to 3 weeks to allow for hardening.
