we got up this morning and a lot of it has dried out we have 2 corners that have polka dots where the drywall screws were mudded over and only a couple of other random little spots here and there that are also where screw heads were mudded over. The paint is dry should we try re-painting ot try putting another coat of primer then paint?

I'd try another coat and see how it dries.

When you say "polka dots" is this a coloration issue, or tiny little craters in the finish?

No the finish is smooth as silk....we did a wonderful job on it considering it was our first attempt at drywall DIY It's just like the white mud has never been painted even though it's had a coat of primer and 2 coats of paint.

At the risk of insulting you, and I don't mean to do that, did you stir the primer and paint sufficiently?

I hate to ask but you know what they say about assumption...

Hey we're novice at best so no risk of insult here...open to any and all comments. The primer was white the finish color is a Mid beige/moca...like very creamed coffee, and we had the paint mixed at lowes the day before we used it then stired it what I think was very well just before use.

Are you sure it's white showing through and not 'shine' from the surfaces being different textures?
(sanded areas smoother than surrounding drywall)

I'd just keep painting it until it finally covers.
