Will primer make a difference


I'm getting ready to paint my bedroom walls. I cleaned them and removed the baseboard but I have lots of small drywall repairs to make. The walls have an orange peel texture on them so I went out and bought hormax orange peel sprayer. I'm going to prime the entire wall before I paint it anyway but my question is do I have to prime the patched spot before I put the texture on or can I just put the texture on then prime the whole wall.

Prime texture then prime agian. Just spot prime the patches. you said you were going to prime the whole thing? so spot prime texture then prime the whole thing two coats of paint and done.

Just put the texture on and prime the whole wall. Anything else is just extra work. Ron

Do you think it ruin the paint job or cause flashing if I don't prime before I texture?

No I really don't think it will hurt anything. I just do the extra to be sure most will probably say it's overkill.

Turns out the directions say to prime first, add texture then prime again.....so here goes nothing.

I have a pretty light orange peel. After replacing drywall in my kitchen, I found that if I primed first, the Homax texture "sat up" more, than if I did not prime. Therefore, for my application, I only primed after. It ended up blending very well.

Sounds like your light orange peel may have been stipple from the roller. Can be hard to tell the difference.

I just used this product to patch a few spots on my orange peel ceiling. Practice on a piece of old drywall or whatever. I got the professional that had more controls.

My only piece of advice that worked for me is that when the spray on texture is mostly dry, take a nappy roller and roll the area you sprayed. That will push down the big bumps while the shallower orange peel is already dry.

You may have to do a few times.
