No sorry no pics but I think you will be well pleased. You sound like me when l have a perfectly smooth finish of a skimcoat I want to keep that look throughout the painting process as well.I can't stand a lot of stipple! The smoother the look the better.On smooth walls your roller should glide with pride!

If permitted I like using Gardz sealer as my prime coat cause it levels out nicely and hardens up soft compounds. Provides excellent base!

What is your finish coat going to be? Different paints would mean different nap recommendations.

Default What type of finish?

Flat/Matte finish? Hope, because everything else shows imperfections.
