Now that it's sealed with primer probably going to have to sand and skim and sand some more.It would have been a lot easier to remove the PASTE but now It's too late most likely.You could try to get the PASTE wet and moving again so you could scrape it off but probably not going to be able to once it's sealed with a primer.

Smoothing out what you can't sand smooth by "skimming" with joint compound.You can search you tube for videos that will show you better than I can explain it most likely.
