Skim over wallpaper?

Can I skim over a grass like wallpaper so I can then texture it? If it is a smooth vinyal wallpaper can I prime it and then blow texture? Does anyone know the best way to paint a drop ceiling grid?

No, you can not skim over wall paper.

No, you can not prime and texturize.

drop ceiling painting:
a) clean (especially if smoke stained)
b) steel wool ruff up
c) spray paint

I find it best not to remove the grid if it is already installed
