After Skim Coat...Gardz or 123??? Help!!!
I've been searching all night for an answer on the net, and I'm just not finding a complete answer, so that's why I am posting now.
Here's my latest project...had floor to ceiling mirrors in the living room of my new house...approximatley 20' x 9' area.
-Took down the mirrors
- scraped off the adhesive off all the dywall (there was a ton!)
- used a razor to clean up the drywall tears and remove excess paper
- rolled 2 coats of GARDZ over the wall (stuff is AMAZING!)
- applied durabond 90 min setting type joint compound (2 skim layers)
- applied lightweight all purpose joint compund (1 skim layer)
- drywall sanded the entire wall.
Now its nice an flat and ready to be primed.
My question is what the heck do I use now?? I have 1/2 gallon of GARDZ left and I just bought Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3.
I was going to buy a drywall primer, but I like Zinsser products.
I've read so people have used 1-2-3 and had great success, I've read people used GARDZ and had great success.
I plan on painting with a water based paint, and an eggshell sheen. Wouldn't painting over the GARDZ be a little difficult considering it very glossy and extremely hard?
Sorry if it's a stupid question..just lost on what to use here....my gut feeling is I can use either and most likely still have a great looking wall when all is said and done, but I figured I would ask here before starting my prime coat over the skim coat.
Thanks in advance!
