I'm remodeling my downstairs bathroom and laundry room and ready to do a spatter/knockdown type texture treatment on the new drywall. I purchased some bags of Sheetrock Brand "wall and ceiling spray texture (unaggregated)". I was reading the preparation directions on the bag. It states to prime coat the drywall with Sheetrock brand First Coat or a latex flat wall paint BEFORE texturing to "equalize the surface porosity and to provide uniform color".
What is the correct way to proceed? I was planning on texturing THEN priming/painting the walls.
