    What's the purpose of skim coating? Is it to make the wall look better, or does it protect the drywall paper core? I thought the primer does that. I'm pulling wallpaper off some closet walls, and when all is said and done, that closet will be filled with clothing and stuff, so those walls will never be seen. So if skim coating is for looks, could I skip that step and just paint after priming?

    if you round the edges of your trowel you can eliminate the scratches

    When removing the wallpaper and there is still backing from the paper will that hide it or do I need to try to remove before doing this. I hate wallpaper

    will the skim coat stick to a wall that was painted after the wallpaper was removed? I bought a house that the previous owner removed the wallpaper but painted over the glue and all the imperfections.. looks terrible

    Why not use a multi finish gypsum plaster, done properly there would be no need for any sanding afterwards.
