Which is the correct way? do you prime first and then texture r texture first and prime over it??
Depends on the type of texture and the finish you want.
Better read the labels, instructions or the manufacturer's web site first!
just regular orange peel out of a gun. i've done a couple where I primed first and them painted and uneven paint results. Seems that the texture sucks up the paint pretty good.this is what the instrution on the texture tub said.
I prime over old oil-base paint before water-based texturing so it sticks better. I shoot tex right onto latex paint or new drywall.
I always latex prime the texture before paint for even results. Sucking up primer is cheaper than sucking up paint.
drywall, mud, texture, pba wall board primer, then paint. Good luck with your project....
Latex primer then texture ( the next day) then prime and paint.
