If it's a skim coat ...

you can get away with painting it as soon as the plaster has dried.

Most heavy plaster jobs (3 coats: scratch, brown and finish can be painted anytime after the 7 day cure-out period of daily wetting the work. It just needs to have gone through the hydration process which usually takes that many days; but, sometimes longer in cooler weather.

When plaster is out of the weather (inside a building) you can shorten the time on a job such as a skim coat.

Hope this helps. ---Jack
