Question Wallpaper residue paint prep

I have taken down old wallpaper in my bathroom. I easily pulled off with no striper of any sort. There is now a glue residue on the walls. Do I have to remove that glue or can I paint over it? If I have to remove it what should I use?

I want the "rusted metal" look on the wall in the bath. A friend used some sort or paint that uses water to create the rust effect. Will this type of paint be ok in a steamy bath environment? If so where can I get this paint?

By all means get every bit of glue off the walls before you proceed otherwise you're asking for big problems. Any water based product applied over the glue will reactivate the glue causing problems with the paint. After removing the glue I would apply one coat of an interior oil base primer and then you're pretty much free to do whatever you want after that for your finish coat..........
