I've always primed before AND after any texture was applied to the wall. However, I see it done both ways, am I just wasting my time and materials priming before texture is applied?

ahhh....this debate rolls on

I've heard both as well. As long as the substrate underneath is clean and sheen free, I'm thinking no primer is really necessary. I tend to be like you Del...do more, and have some extra peace of mind....

When I did alot of housework we would prime with some plus-3 mixed into the primer to give it some "body" to flatten everything out.
