removing wall paper paste

How do you remove wallpaper paste once you have already gone over it with a primer?

Welcome to the forums!

The paste should be removed before the primer is applied.

At this point, there isn't much you can do other sand [maybe scrape a little] and reprime. Most any solvent based primer will seal wallpaper adhesive. Zinnser's Gardz is the only latex primer that will do a good job of sealing the adhesive.
