Kind of sorry I started this project...

soaking the glue a while to soften and then sanding
You tried to sand wet soft adhesive? Sounds like a lot of gummed up sandpaper. I would only sand dry glue/adhesive.

I don't really understand why so many recommend Gardz when oil based Kilz has always seemed to work for me in these situations.

But anyway, the guys are giving good advice, imo, on the procedure to skim this wall.

Hope you do not stress a lot over this as it might be a little taxing on your nerves if it is something new to you.

Good luck.

What part of the country are you in Libby? South here. Alabama to be more exact.

Why use that stinking, brain cell killing stuff when Gardz will do the same thing???

Heheh, accomplish the same goal with less money. Well there is the brain killing angle. Respirator?

Use enough of it, and you will not even think about it.
