priming skimcoat

Hi all,

Quick question. Just made a go at skimcoating, it certainly is quite the operation, don't know if I would ever want to do it again, but anyhow, now that I finally got the cursed job done, what do I prime it with? I am sure one type of primer is more appropriate than another, and I certainly want to do this right the first time lest I have to do it again (shudder....).

Most any latex primer will work. Some are better than others depending on what the top coat will be. If finishing with enamel or wallpaper I prefer to use a latex enamel undercoater. If finishing with flat latex I usually use a latex primer sealer. The better suited the primer is to the top coat the better and easier the finish coat will go on.
