Default high build primer

can anyone recommend a latex high build primer available in the NY area? We have to cover over sponge paint/ faux on walls & trim, and I would like to use a thicker primer than my usual.

A skim coat of mud is probably your best bet on a textured wall....I don't know of a paint or primer that will smooth out a wall that has been faux finished.

And why would you want to use a primer over a previously painted surface,{assuming it is acrylic}?...Paint is always thicker than primer/sealer.

If its not to thick a faux then this should work just fine.

ASSuming the wall is textured, if he skimmed then it would have to be re-textured. Probably more work than he needs to do if he can just paint over it.

Are the walls smooth or textured? You most likely would get away with 2 coats of finish and call it good, if it's smooth wall and the faux is heavy or raised then a skim coat would be a good call.

In any case, the Gripper primer from Glidden is a fairly thick primer. I say do some test areas and see what will work

Peel bond is an interior/exterior product that's pretty thick, and then there's tuff hide. Not sure how it would come out just spraying it, but you never know

Peel bond is used to make a crappy exterior look barely acceptable...It's a different story for interior walls...You want them to look almost perfect.

I would never use peel bond for exteriors as well as my standards are much higher.

If the walls are textured in the first place, yes. You skim coat it filling in the voids now it's a smooth wall. What am I missing?
