I just remove two layers of wall paper in my kitchen. In a couple of spots I pulled off with the paper the dry wall paper, exsposeing what looks like brown paper that would be right before the plaster. I'm guessing, in any case when we applied dry wall mud to the those areas the papery stuff puckered like wet paper would be and now the wall is exstreamly bumpy there. I don't think sanding is the answer as that would take it down to the paper or the plaster. so anyone got any ideas as to what we can do to get past this problem

You will need to cut out thoes areas that are puckered up and prime it Gardz from Zinsser and that stick that paper back down and then you can mud over it.
