What are the advantages of sanding interior latex primer on new drywall?

Sanding Primer


Final coat ends up smoother and better adhering
Any boogers, lumpies, and fuzzies get smoothed out or knocked off
Gives the next coat some "tooth" to hang on longer

Sanding Primer


Thanks slickshift,

Reason I ask is I am using a high build primer from SW w/ a 1/2" nap roller cover and the results looked pretty good (to me anyhow)

It has a textured look that is slightly more bumpy than just the normal paint roller texture.

And was wondering how y'all thought this would look after the final top coats where applied?

Sanding Primer


A 3/8th inch nap is what you should be using. Sanding the primer will not do much but knock off any pieces of roller nap that may have gotten stuck in the primer while rolling. The only time sanding after priming is necessary is on new wood which will fir up or the grain will come out from the primer.

Paint colors, it doesn't fill


...well, except for something like a high build primer, but that's a different animal

Interesting using a roller with that
It's really meant to be sprayed to "smooth out" a drywall finish
Interesting effect with the roller...cool that you are digging it
