Primed new ceiling drywall
 
Hi all. Just finished priming a newly drywalled ceiling 10x24. Looks really good other than a few areas over mudded drywall screws. Although no noticeable ridges they are raised and can be seen under certain light. Do these spots show only because a primer coat has been applied and will they disappear after painted a couple times OR, will I need to sand these down further then re-prime and paint?

Thanks,

Gord

Hard to tell from here without a picture.
If you can feel it with your hand it's going to show when painted.

Is it easy to sand down after being primed? Use 100 grit, sand down and then reprime?

Easy no, got to be done yes.
