Agree with the home depot answer man. Primer will raise the grain on even a smooth sanded surface. I was given this by an employee at Home depot to refinish old 1980s pine furniture.

My entire bedroom set turned out beautifully. Slightly distressed from small dents. If you want to hide blemishes use wood filler BETWEEN primer and paint. Allowing the primer to fill the holes first - the primer also helps the wood filler adhere better. Set of new contractor pack of handles and voila...new furniture.

Answer: 
It is not sandable at all. Think sanding used chewing gum. I finally went to 60 grit to try to sand it, and all it did was pull some sections off the work completely and smear the rest around. Ugly. If you HAVE to use Gripper, apply it very thin, even though the paint is a thick paint.

I had to sand mine because it did not go on evenly and left the surface rougher than it originally was. I used 400 grit and only light sanded without good results. It is also gummy after 24 hours. I read somewhere than sanding latex type paints should only be sanded after a month has passed and I think this may fit that category. In any case, the job is starting to look like a disaster and I may have to Read More

The primer not only enhanced the rough surface, it did not coat well or allow the top coat to cover well. I will not be using this product again. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, Gripper is sand-able. Should be able to sand once it’s dry, an hour or two at most. Please follow directions on the label for proper application as well.

Answer: 
Hi Margaret,
Appling any finish to bare wood will raise the grain; this is the roughness you are feeling. Sanding the primer is perfectly fine and will improve the final finish.
I usually recommend sanding between all coats to achieve the best results.

Have you tried removing them with pure alcohol? (The 93.3 pure alcohol would do fine but don't use the so called rubbing alcohol since is only 70% alcohol and the rest is water. Walgreen by the way) It will do the job but since the alcohol evaporates too fast, do not wipe a large area at once, other wise you'll end up with a big blob of stain across the wiped area.

Have you tried removing them with pure alcohol? (The 93.3 pure alcohol would do fine but don't use the so called rubbing alcohol since is only 70% alcohol and the rest is water. Walgreen by the way) It will do the job but since the alcohol evaporates too fast, do not wipe a large area at once, other wise you'll end up with a big blob of stain across the wiped area. Instead do the wipe one small section at a time. You may end up with a very faint written words but then again, you won't need to apply as many coats of paint to cover the "well wishes". You can also try acetone but personally I think is too strong to breath in a enclosed area. I did tried it but it was too strong for me and it leaves a messier spot to remove. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
When painting over wallpaper I coat all seams with oil based primer. The oil does not make the seams come unglued like a latex primer or paint does.
Next step I do is drywall mud over the seams and sand flat.
Then prime (at least mudded areas) and paint.
It looks like a new wall when I'm done.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ew We have painted miles of paint over the years, and Gripper is not the way to go. First, it should be called dripper. We primed over a varnished door (properly cleaned and smooth) and later painted it. About a year later our dog scratched a spot on the door and left a paint tag loose. I tried to sand it down to repaint, but it peeled. I pulled all the paint and primer right off the door in about a minute. The only place where the finish paint had stuck was where I MISSED with the primer. Since I still have some primer left, it's going back to the store and I have to repaint. See photo below - gray= paint , white = primer. July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It was high quality product I loved using this product as it was very easy to use it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is a must have when painting I used the gripper on wood, stucco, and drywall and works better than amazing, fills in cracks in stucco and wood and keeps the paint color even, I have told everybody I know about the gripper. Well worth the money. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best primer for non-traditional surfaces I used this to paint old 1970s faux wood paneling, had it tinted to an off white color. Makes the room look fresh and big, goes on thick, it's great! November 16, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Never use on kitchen cabinets Please do not use this product on cabinets, it will not lay smooth. Also this product is not sandable it just gums up and will leave you with a mess. After remodeling our kitchen painting was our last step. everything bleeds through this stuff I have no idea why people would rave about it. your brushes will be ruined so expect that. luckily I only painted the insides with this garbage. I salvaged the fronts by spraying a different primer which I found is the only way to do it. I believe we used zinsser oil based primer which is amazing and sprays beautifully. STAY AWAY FROM GRIPPER September 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glidden Gripper unfortunately only available in the USA I live in Canada and have always used KILZ which is ok. My neighbour in Florida said only to use GRIPPER as his son is a pro painter. I used it in my double wide to paint the paneling and the pre fab ceilings. It worked so well on the ceilings that it even filled and sealed the cracks between the tiles and vinyl strips. It took 2 coats to obtain this but it looks great. There is no comparison between GRIPPER and KILZ as Gripper reigned supreme. My only complaint is we Canadians get screwed again as they won't sell it in Canada. Their reasons are that DULUX offers a similar product. The only similarity is they are both white. Can't wait to get back to the states so I can bring some home. September 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gripper is a great name for this paint! I had read several reviews of different primer coating products, but this one had the most dedicated users, so it looked like a good bet! I had to paint my floor in the bathroom, and I only wanted to paint it once; that's what it did, all the cover that was needed. I painted over Gripper with some floor paint, and it looks great! Not only was it a good project, it was a fast job, considering all the steps that I took. Gave it a day to dry, and painted right over it, easy peasy. Thanks, Glidden!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The smell of the dead was vanquished The room smelled of death. We feared a hidden gem from the dogs, or worse, a rat had fought the good fight amongst the walls and lost. We thought the smell might pass. It did not. It got worse. The smell started creeping into the fringes of the rest of the house. Something needed to be done. We needed to apply "The Gripper". 10 gallons applied liberally to the walls attacked the rancid smell. The smell was strong, but it was no match for the power of "The Gripper". Soon, the room felt normal again. There was much rejoicing in the household. We could live again in the living room. Life is good, thanks to "The Gripper".
