I've read that alot of drywallers prime before they texture to reduce the ghosting effect, seal the pourous paper surface, etc.

But do you also need to apply a coat of primer after applying texture? (I will be attempting an orange peel effect using a hopper gun and air compressor). Or just prime after texturing?

Thanks! chris

Yes you should prime the walls before you texture with a latex drwall primer and be sure it is not an undercoater as they will have to much of a sheen for what you are doing. If the finish paint is going to be flat you do not need to prime the texture but if you are going to use a eggshell/satin you will need to prime after texturing.

why do you need to prime before texture and after. We have our texture on the walls and I was ready to paint tomorrow but now im reading I need to prime again. What will happen if I don't?
