I saw an interior primer called 'high build' by Olympic at ***** . It says that it covers imperfections in walls. Has anyone used such a product and if so how effective is it? I am planning to repaint some plaster walls with hairline cracks, uneven textures etc. Nothing major but would like to avoid having to sand down the walls if possible.

I use alot of Highbuild primer from H irshfileds and it is a pretty good line of product,i'd say get a quart and try and see,but I do belive it is sold only in 5 gallon pails.
Olympic may be different,if they sell them in single gal cans get 1 and try it 1st.
If it doesnt then you can always use this in alot of other things and able to tint it to many other applications.
It does hide alot of immperfections on new drywall houses we do when the taper does a horse**** job it hides alot of blemishes.
