Primer


Just had an entire room taped and spackled what is the best primer to use to cover any areas that might not be sanded(blended) perfect. To our naked eye everything looks perfect but just in case ....we don't want anything to show

Primer


There is no magic primmer that fixes flaws.
Have you shown a bright light across the area and looked at it an angle?
Ran you hand across any repairs to feel for flaws.
Wiped it down to remove any dust?
Zinsser 123 is one of the better primers.
Learn how to use a 2-1/2" quality sash brush and skip all the tape next time. It's faster, cheaper, and no chance of peeling the paint off when you remove the tape.

Understood Joe and will do the light thing. Everything looks good but just wanted the best primer.

Primer


Almost always flaws will show once it's primed.
Stop and fix before painting.

Primer


There is what's called a "high build" primer, but personally I think it's easier and you're better off just using some side lighting to evaluate, re-mud or sand as needed, and you're good.
