I have just used Zinsser Cover Stain (oil based) over some textured wallpaper that had fused to the wall. It has been up 30 years and was one of those old velvet "embossed" patterns, that has become rock hard due to other primers and glues over the top.

The pattern is still obvious under the cover stain.

Should I try one of the textured paints or will I have to skim with joint compound, then prime and paint? Has anyone had any success with the Behr or Benjamin Moore textured paints.

first of all i never recomend painting over wall paper but if you must use a oil primer wich you did. When it comes to texture paint I have used the Behr It come in 3 diffrent textures. This will work but that suff is thick i would put about 16oz. of water in the 2 gallon jug. I would also use a trowel instead of a looped roller. if you dont want the troweled look you can roll it after it is already troweled on the wall.

Another way to do the texture is to roll it on with a lop roller and wait about 10 minutes or so and go over with a broad knife to knock the peaks off. This gives it a nice knock down look and it should hide the texture of the wallpaper and if you want any color other than white you can then paint the texture paint the color of your choice.
