what type of primer?


Hi all, I just scraped old popcorn off a ceiling. I'm ready to prime the ceiling before applying a stomped texture. I'm getting mixed advice over what primer to use. One guy said water based...another said that since there is some residue left on the ceiling from the old popcorn, I need an oil based primer to soak into the drywall and seal it because the water based primer might separate from the old joint compound...any thoughts?

Here is what I would use, unless there is a problem with staining, then I would use Bullseye 123.
