Be careful getting this tinted. If you are just going white, no problem.

Ahhh, I see!
Be careful if you try and tint this stuff a different color.

Primer Type Over Drywall That Previously Had Wallpaper


The Gardz Problem Surface Sealer is now on all walls and the small ceiling portion I repaired.

The Benjamin Moore Ben color for the walls is lily lavender. There are some pencil lines and wood trim stains on the drywall from before it was originally wall papered.

Will 2 coats of the Ben be sufficient to hide the pencil lines and wood trim stains, or should I first place another (white?) primer on top of the Gardz?

Yes, depending on the type of stain, not sure what you mean by wood trim stain

There are 2 windows in the room. The wood trim was stained with a brown stain when the house was built. Knowing they were going to wallpaper, the stainers were not careful. Thus the stain on the drywall around the preimeter of the windows found after I removed the wallpaper.

I've decided to be conservative and put an oil based primer over these stains just to be on the safe side.

Thanks again for all the input.
