I need to touch up some walls with the premixed plaster from a bucket. Some of the walls are painted with semi-gloss paint, and some with eggshell paint.

My question is: will the painted walls hold the plaster, or is there a better way to fix the problems?

Thanks in advance!

Emilie,
I don't know the specific product you're going to use to know if there will be an adhesion problem, so I'd suggest a very light roughing up of the semi-gloss surface (150 grit paper or finer) to play it safe. The eggshell finish should be fine.
