Old damaged wall - Can this be fixed?


The wall feels like 150-grit sand paper now after applying it.

So after I put the all purpose compound over the Gardz, i will use the Gardz again and cover the whole wall area with it?
And then I will use the paint for the bathroom.
I was planning on using:
Benjamin Moore - Aura Bath & Spa - Matte Finish


thx

Old damaged wall - Can this be fixed?


so i put the initial all purpose compound, and now i want to make sure that i do it right,
i will do second layer of the compound to fill in any imperfections left after first plastering,
then i will do the sanding and then i will cover whole area with Gardz (initially i only used Gardz on broken area)
no primer will be used,
then i will paint the wall according to this guide:

are my steps in the correct order?

thx
