will old waterstains show through wallpaper?


Sorry I have a million questions here. I did get the stain blocking primer and have applied quite abit of it on the ceiling. So far so good. I'm noticing water stains coming through the drywall compound that I used to patch the walls. I'm planning to paper them in paintable textured paper (so it's not the vinyl kind or whatever that is) will the stains come through the paper? Just wondered if I should primer over that too. Thanks!!!

Yes it will. You will need to stain kill whatever is bleeding through before applying your WALL COVERING primer.
