For perfect paint on new drywall, first lightly sand down the joint compound for an even surface and remove dust with a microfiber cloth. Then, apply Benjamin Moore’s Fresh Start All Purpose Primer using a 1/2-in. nap roller to evenly coat the surface.
Applying a high-quality primer consistently seals the surface and creates great adhesion for a long-lasting topcoat. Once dry, apply two finish coats of Benjamin Moore Regal Select and your drywall is ready.
