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?
