    remove it .....down the road it will be a head ache
  • Yes, if it's still tight on the wall and not peeling. Use an oil-based primer first.

    You can but you will regret in years to come. Take the time to remove it before you paint.

    I have if it's not breaking loose anywhere. I paint with a bonding
    primer. like kiltz oil. Then 2 finish coats of my wall color. It may bubble some but will lay down under Kilts

    It needs to be moistened and removed first, sorry deary, it will be better in the long run to remove it first.

    Always best to remove it. The moisture in the paint can make it bubble and peel. If it can't be removed then painting is the only option. Prime with a good stain blocking primer like Kilz or Bin. Then paint your color.
