ut oh drywall fuzzies & SW uva primer question


I got a leeeeettle over zealous while doing some sanding on the new drywall and mud....and now I have drywall fuzzies in some areas. Please tell me the SW PVA primer/sealer will lay these down when I prime.

note to self don't sand without a light

Never heard of that product, but it might, maybe.I would go ahead and prime and then sand off the fuzzys after it dries and touch up with said primer.

I just used the SW PVA in part of a new house.
It did well as far as not raising the fuzzies. It went over a top notch dry wall job, but there are always some fuzzies.
Actually, I was impressed with the product all the way around. Spread well, covered good, and the price was nice. ... Didn't sand quite as well as I had hoped though.

Jmayspaint.......not sure about the top notch drywall job in this house but its a whole lot better than nekked studs that's for sure lol.

Matthew - pva was the recommended sealer/primer for new drywall based on the research that I did. I am looking forward to seeing what it does with new drywall as I have never dealt with new drywall on such a large scale. We shall see.

I know, it gets recommended by a lot of people but for the life of me I can never figure out why. It is way too thin and too clear in most cases to even make it look like you even did anything to the walls.

My understanding is that PVA is used mainly because of its adhesive qualities on drywall.

Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA) itself is colorless, so any coverage it provides comes from the colorants and other additives.

The new house I used it in recently was my first experience with it.
The SW PVA seemed thick in the bucket, actually somewhat 'pasty'
It applied quite smoothly

The problem I have encountered with PVA is it covers bare drywall OK but on joints with mud it sometimes will let the mud flash.

How to huff glue legally

Well last night I primed 2 rooms with the SW PVA primer...This stuff is either really forgiving or I am just that good with the drywall (I'm going with the latter lol).

Seriously, I cannot compare it to other drywall primers as I have only ever done one other little drywall job and we just used regular primer.

This stuff went on smooth and really laid down the fuzzies. Have a couple of spots that are flashing but I think that is more because it was at the end of the job at some ungodly hour this morning so I don't think I was consistent in a few spots.

Very happy with end result. Only drawback is don't paint this stuff in a small closet without a fan...stiiiiiiinky. Light sand tonight and then on with the Final ceiling coat.

I would just go ahead and prime. Then lightly zip-zap the wall with a drywall screen. Fuzzy"s will disappear.

Well, I hope the PVA works for me as good as it did for Robin. The new house I started yesterday has the fuzziest drywall I have ever seen. They sanded it all with a big 10" pole sander. The nail mud which is about 3-4 inches wide has 5-6 inches of fuzz all around it. So far it's laying down pretty good.
I will have to really sand well, the finish is eggshell.

Jmays.....I sanded clear through to China in a few places lol. I used the SW PVA and afterwards it was as smooth as silk.

The only issue I had with it was ventilation...stuff had me so high hubby had to shoot me down off the ceiling. Hope yours turns out well for you.

Tool, I have just ran into the flashing problem myself. I sprayed an back rolled the PVA yesterday morning. Early this morning I noticed flashing of the mud. The top coat has been drying all day, and its flashed through it too. Not terrible, but definitely noticeable. The finish in SW Cashmere low luster.
Will another coat improve this? The second pic is the top coat. Hard to see it in the pic, but its definitely there.....

Yes usually I am a SW guy but to be honest I don't think I have ever used cashmere in this situation. But almost anytime I have used good paint the second coat would hide the flash.
