Need helps with fixing plaster cracks please!

Can I paint over the plaster weld with a primer? can't figure out how to upload here . I used the plaster-weld on the crack, waited for it to dry, and then used a CGC compound over that -waited for it to dry (24 hours), and then sanded it down and this is what I have. I am new at this, so I am probably doing something wrong. It feels smooth now (a lot of sanding).
What is next? Primer? Should I have not sanded away the CGC compound? Confused, for sure...

Welcome to the forums David!

Tiny pics don't work on this site - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html

I'm not familiar with 'plaster weld' or CGC Is CGC similar to joint compound? if so, once the repair matches the existing plaster, you'd prime and paint.
