Plaster can't be painted?

That's news to me. I've been painting for 20 years and I've never heard that one. Is there some clue here about what type of plaster that was used?

I was taught to prime unpainted plaster with an "alkyd enamel underbody". Once dry, this primer can then be painted with almost anything.

In leu of that, I would try to use chlorine bleach to see if it will remove the stain. Test it first in an inconspicous area to see if the bleach itself will leave a stain.

I'm curious about this plaster. If you can find out any details, I'd like to know.
