Plastering question

I have just finished drywalling my basement with mold resistent drywall, DensArmor Plus Paperless Drywall... http://www.gp.com/build/product.aspx?pid=4659

My question is, is plastering an option for this type of drywall or do I specifically need blueboard for plastering?

I learned about this on this site. Never used it before. From what I see you need to finish this with joint compound using paper tape at the seams. You also need to skim coat the entire surface for sure!

Top notch primer and finish coats, like a pro paint store Sherwin Williams or your local paint store.

I found this on the DensArmor website..

Q:Can veneer plaster be applied over DensArmor PlusŪ paperless drywall?
A:Yes. Where DensArmor PlusŪ paperless drywall is to receive a veneer plaster, longer working or open time as well as longer drying times can be expected due to the product's superior moisture-resistance properties. Veneer plasters adhere well to DensArmor Plus panels. Always apply veneer plaster systems according to the manufacturer's recommendations.


I guess that answeres my question on whether or not plaster can be applied to it.

90 days cure time before prime and paint. Primer should be oil based.
