I didn't use primer at all on new drywall throughout the entire room. It literally drank in the paint and I can still see the texture of the paper after the first coat. Even after the second I can still kind of see it. While the walls aren't wet per se if I press hard my hand wants to stick to the surface (which I thought was because I got semi gloss) but also if I rub my fingertips against the wall they come away blue with a chalky texture.

I'm hoping that laying a coat of primer over this will solve the problem. I'd hate to have to tear out all the new drywall because of this.
