    yes i recently used it on a couple of walls that had been previously painted with a matt finish - no problems.
    Make sure you dust off after rubbing down and i primed the walls using an acrylic U/P

    Not sure this is the place for this ques but im on the 4t thought process....

    Is it easier to apply with a taping knife or a putty knife? Is one better than the other in general?

    When you said "Putty Knife" I thought you were having a meltdown and thought of our UK putty knife when puttying windows :huh:
    I see the Americans call their knives Putty Knives.

    For the starting point of filling over your mesh, I use a 3" Purdy filling knife (putty).
    When dry, over with a 6".
    Then lastly (or last two fills) a 14" Taping Knife.

    I've used the GTec Smartmix Xtra Lite and it does the job nicely. Read a few negatives with pock marks but didn't find that myself.
    Dearer in comparison to others but readily available as you say at Selco.
    From memory, it sticks to pre painted surfaces so is good as dink filler too.
