Here we go again with useless, sarcastic posts. At least add some actual non-sarcastic content along with the sarcasm to make the posts slightly worth while.

I, We have been adding "actual non-sarcastic content". You're either not processing it, ignoring it, or just not choosing to accept it. What else is there to say on the topic. Some more actual non-sarcastic content, it's standard fare after priming new drywall to walk the walls and knife high and low spots. Final drywall finishing is rarely perfect and the primer lights up the required touch ups, it's expected. Maybe it's another regional thing, but I've never seen guys standing around discussing high build primers or level 5 to solve the defects. It takes a few minutes to spackle the defects. If you want to try your hand sanding out primed high spots that's your option, but I'm telling you it's difficult, it cuts the primed surface and leaves a gouge that requires spackling, maybe twice. So we're back to spackling, which is where we were to start. But if you want to build it up with multiple layers of primer, go for it and tell us how it works out for you. What about the low spots?

[QUOTE=Dorado;1165782]"KILZ HIGH BUILDŽ is a unique, interior water-based primer that can be applied more thickly than most primers. It creates a finish equivalent to a fully prepared skim coat (Level 5 finish) when sprayed. Spray, brush or roll." So I guess nobody here thinks multiple coats of regular primer would accomplish the same. I think it would work for sure with enough coats but I'd at least try sanding after the coat that was already applied.[/QUOTE]


baloney. I guess you have done this and actually seen the results? I thought not.

Let's simply do the math so I won't sound "sarcastic".

Multiple coats of primer will take multiple days to apply so the primer is dry enough for sanding and not rolling into little gribnits when sanding.
Lets say even 2 days.

The OP needs such a fine skim, it will be ready to sand in a few hours and ready for primer. 1 day.

I understand you're trying to help and bring up ideas but not all ideas work.
I'd rather finish in half the time. How about you?

The answer to your question: "Do I have to add more compound" is YES.

I'd just spend 30 seconds sanding the existing coat to see if it works. I wouldn't try more primer after that unless maybe I didn't have joint compound or it looked very close to smooth.

And I don't care who said it, where they said it, or who they said it to, YOU CANNOT GET A L5 WITH PAINT. And yes I have used high build primers. No they will not work for this. I don't get it all the time and money to get this far and have a decent job and now for a 15 minute fix you want to half a$$ it.
