Default Sand texture

On a job which house was built back in early seventies which all interior walls and ceilings have sand texture.This stuff not only sucks paint but sucks in general! All is being rolled cause of the conditions and I'm a little over half way done and it has sucked 26 gallons so far receiving two coats.maybe where that saying came from back then "its a drag" cause this stuff drags on your brushes and rollers something terrible.

I feel your pain MB. I did a church last year with the same type of finished walls. I had a heck of a time matching the texture on the patched areas.Boy was it thirsty.

your painting over Imperial plaster. that is what that sand texture is. you have to seal it first before painting.

Its not imperial it's just a sand texture additive they used back then to cover their surface flaws in their drywall.Have done a lot of patching from nail pops and cracked seams and I have found that corn meal added to primecoat matches very well.On ceiling though I recommend using though a bit of a "grind" the self "rising" mix.

Have you considered using Gardz primer?

One or two coats should completely seal up the porosity and allow you to paint without issues.
