To prime or not?


Good day,

I just finished all the dry wall, taped and primed, now I going to spray texture on the walls, do I need to prime the texture after I spray for paint?

Regards,

Prime before and after texture, A.2.3, pp.18 and A.4.3.1; http://www.lafargenorthamerica.com/G...%20English.pdf

Absolutely!And I would use a high-build primer to even out the texture a bit.
