About to start tiling shower, however.....

I am about to start tiling and had a question. I have installed tile backer to shower surround, have filled the joints that meet up with the sheetrock, and am wondering if I should seal the joint compound with primer, or if I can simply install the tile over the mudded joints? Only a small portion of tile will cover the mud, and the rest will be painted over at a later time. I can attach photos if necessary.

Thanks in advance

Well, you could have used thinset as long as it was going to be under the tile. Not sure what the moisture in the thinset will do to the joint compound. Best to wait for someone with more experience. Probably not a big deal since (I hope) you didn't spread it out too far. What size tile are you using, and how much will be on the cbu vs the drywall?
