After priming the smoothed wall with PVA primer, one must once again go over the wall with a light looking for small surface imperfections.  These surface imperfections are patched, (notice the patches in the picture), sanded, wiped down with a wet rag, then primed with the PVA primer.  Now the wall is as smooth as we can get it!!!
