Took my time repairing all the holes and dings on the walls. Walls now have white splotches all over the place. I used joint compound for the repairs and sanded smooth, flat, and feathered. I decided to spend the extra money and bought Sherwin Williams paint and primer. Painted a coat of primer and still see the repairs. Should I use 2 coats of primer on the entire wall? On the other walls that are repaired the same way (have to paint whole house), should I spot prime first, then prime the entire wall so the repairs have 2 coats? Is one coat of primer on the entire wall enough on these repaired walls and move on to 2 coats of finish coat?
You can spot primer the patches before your over all primer coat if you want but if you are using a good primer you should not have to do so. You usually do not gain anything with an extra coat of interior primer.
