Vermi...something type paint

Just moved in, the bathroom ceiling is peeling and someone mentioned the type of paint or the ceiling is verm...sounds like vermiculite but not. They said we could prime it with oil base then skim is with joint compound.

Does that sound right? Please advise.

I'm not sure I understand what type of coating is on your ceiling but scraping and sanding followed by a solvent based primer would be the way to go. Once it's skim coated, you will need to reprime but latex will be fine this time.
