project: filling in garbage knock down texture with semi(?) gloss paint. Pre-70’s home so Lead paint and asbestos is possible.

I’ve been getting some nasty scratches lately in my joint compound applications
41589

I scrape the wall getting anything that sticks out.
Primer (it does it with Kilz 2 and Zinsser 1-2-3)
Joint compound (all purpose usg green)
Topping (usg light blue)


before it would be a simple speck here or there in the joint compound itself etc. But now it’s taking the primer off too. I bought a new taping knife and it still did the same thing. The first two rooms I worked on didn’t have this issue.

has anyone come across this issue before?

First, scrape the area clean and level using the putty knife. Next, apply a small amount of the spackling compound to cover the scratch with a putty knife and a small area around the scratch.
