If you primed two days ago, the first coat should be fine. So, you can put the second coat on as soon as it's dry from the rain.
I found I could get away with outdoor latex primer when resurfacing concrete with a thin layer of sand mix. I have also grown the technique using masonry screw drilled and placed into broken concrete which was then primed when Iwas faced with broken corners and edges of significant size. None have failed and it has been years. This was done at a multi ...
I'd doubt that any sort of cover-up will be satisfactory. In fact, a faux finish will likely make the problem more noticeable. I would suggest spreading the plaster out over a much larger area, maybe 3x the size, and sanding and feathering from there with a few passes of progressively finer sandpaper, otherwise your eye will always be drawn to the same spot. ...

Yes, you can paint it. Personally, I always use oil-based paints because they last longer, but you can use whatever paint you want (water colors?)

Texture over the wall paper then paint. It will take a long time to get the paper off. You will put dings in the wall. Ive tried every method.I do this for a living. Trust me, Ive seperated my shoulder doing this. Pull any piece off that may be peelng. Rent a hooper. Texture over it and use paint with primer.
