sheetrock damage from wallpaper removal

Since I was doing a venetian plaster finish on the walls, I knew I did not need the surface to be perfectly smooth. After priming with Guardz the plaster bubbled up on me. In the future I will always use an oil primer to seal in any wallpaper glue that just did not want to come off. Just my two cents.
Don't make me go there. please.

m1951- All of us who recommend Gardz say to a person to remove the paste first. If you are doing what you did, I would have used 2 coats .
But I have also seen oil fail both at sealing paste and sealing damages wallboard. It depends on how completely and thickly it has been covered.
