I am getting ready to paint some walls I just removed wallpaper from. It looks like I also pulled a layer of drywall with the wallpaper. What do I need to do to the wall before I start painting?

You can sand the wall lightly to remove most of the loose paper and then seal it with a coat GARDZ from Zinsser which will lock any remaining loose paper down. Then you will to apply joint comound to smooth out the walls. After skimming the walls you will need to prime them with a latex drywall primer and apply the finish paint of your choice. You also may need to point a coulple of spots afetr you apply the primer as some will show up then.

I believe it was latex.
