priming new and old drywall


I had the drywall on two walls redone in my bathroom. The drywall guy is going to spatter texture (orange peel) all the walls, old and new. He is texturing onto the unprimed drywall, as well as the painted existing walls.

We will be using Ben Moore finish paint, probably the kitchen and bath satin.This is a powder room, so no steam issue, and there is a fan anyway.

Any special primer needed?

1/2 or 3/4 nap on orange peel texture? Same nap for the primer and finish?

Since it's textured, no need to sand after primer, right?

Please look around at some of the hundreds of poster here and on other sites all asking how to get rid of textured walls and ceilings. Hard if not impossible to clean and hard to paint.

I'm not trying to get rid of the texture, just trying to paint it. It's sort of standard around here.

I'm not talking about popcorn ceilings, those suck. I'm talking about orange peel.

priming new and old drywall


I've been reading the posts here about PVA primers for drywall.

Since I have both new drywall AND painted wall, with new texture on both, I'm guessing I should use a multi-purpose acrylic primer, right?

(from what I read, the PVA won't be good on the painted wall)

Not sure I can find the Kelly Moore.

I have a local shop that carries Benjamin Moore, would I use Super Spec 270 or the Superior acrylic primer 046?

I have yet to come across a surface that PVA primer was good for.
