Simple Spray Texture Painting Question


I just fixed some wall damage. I have just finished the re-texturing of the wall. My question now is do I HAVE to prime the spot before painting? I have been told both yes and no. I have also been told that it must be oil primer. I plan on using a combined paint/primer like the rest of the house. Any guidance is appreciated!

Yes you should prime. I don't know the texture material you used, but when in doubt, using a nice solvent based alkyd film primer like Ben Moore's Fresh Start or Zinsser Cover Stain will certainly not hurt you. Alkyd primers will go over almost anything (prepped surface of course) and you can paint near anything over them. They are the great situation equalizers in the primer world.

That said. What does the product label for the texture product recommend? Zinsser Gardz might be another option if sealing the texture is the issue. I should think a nice, high bond waterbased primer you are using elsewhere in the house could work too. Without knowing more about the texture product I cannot say for sure though.

Thanks sdsester. Also, your avatar cracked me up.

I used Homax Brand Pro Grade Orange Peel Wall Texture. Just from a spray can. According to the instructions it says:
7. PAINT with 2 coats or more for complete hide and to match gloss (dependent upon color and paint manufacturer's instructions".

You are always better off using an actual primer for your first coat on any new surface.
