Best Answer

Yes and no. Short answer is you need to apply a bonding agent to the durock so the plaster will stick. Blueboard is chemically treated to accept plaster, durock is not so it will just fall off without a bonding agent.

Kal-Kote Finish Plaster is a white finish plaster that can be troweled on and left with a smooth or textured finish, over base coat and on top of blue board. We also use this plaster when we are resurfacing existing walls and ceilings that have been prepared using plaster washers and fiberglass mesh tapes over the cracks, and gluing the entire surface with "Plaster Weld " ( a Larson product ) to create a bond over previously painted walls and ceilings . We also tint the plaster to make any color desired , and apply two coats of machined buffed wax to give the walls a satin smooth finish burnished with steel wool .You will never have to paint again !
