I am a DIYer. I drywalled and mudded my whole place, learning as I went with pretty good results. However, I've come to realize that drywall mud shrinks once primer is applied. Everything looks perfect shining a light sideways on my walls before primer. After I prime, I see the screws. Every single one in harsh lighting. This is after 3, sometimes 4 coats if I feel some are still not perfect. I've used SICO go prime, and KILZ 3. For drywall mud I use CGC all purpose light. Is there such thing as a primer that doesn't react this way with drywall mud?

Here is a picture of a screw before and after primer.
