I haven't tried it. The only con may be the Home Depot tinting machine may not have this product in there list and have to manually input color leaving the dried color a little off. But as a base coat, that may not matter.

Hi Susan.

Just ask your Home Depot Paint person to add the colorant to match your paint swatch in a few shades lighter and throw it in the shaker to mix. If you have an electric drill with a mixing attachment or just a paint stick, make a recipe and pour out a measured amt of the Kilz from the can into a second larger container, adding a measured amt of your desired color of ACRYLIC (LATEX)PAINT. BTW That price for a Gallon is the lowest I've heard of!!

Yes it can be tinted slightly to help transition to a top light color, to minimize top coats.
Do not use as a top coat.
Do not tint to try and match, and do not tint for a dark color.

Recommended that you use this product BEFORE your paint. If you have a bleed through, then use Kilz on the stains and re-paint. Your problem should be solved.

Answer: 
Some bleed through stains will come through no matter what if you try to just cover it. You have to find out what the stain material is, then neutralize it. If it is a grease type stain wash it down with a good detergent,such as Dawn first, then prime it. sometimes it takes a few coats to get it covered. Depends on the type of stain, and the size of it.

It has covered all my stains in the past. I have always cleaned the area as directed though.
If you do not properly clean the surface it might eventually bleed through again, especially if you have already primed it and that didn't cover. I have found Kilz a very affective primer though.

Hello! KILZ 2 is designed for smaller decorative painting projects like interior and exterior color change. You want a product that is formulated to tackle tough stains. First, do you know the type of stain on the surface? There are two different types of stains: (1) oil-soluble stains such as kitchen grease, hand prints, tar or creosote and (2) water-soluble stains such as nicotine, smoke stains and tannin bleed. If you are unsure, we do have a revolutionary product that blocks both types called KILZ MAX. This heavy-duty stain blocker is a revolution to the primer category since it combats both stain types. You can find this product at your local Home Depot store. If you have any additional questions, please contact us directly at ask@kilz.com. Thanks! Read Less

I plan to use Kilz primer (Kilz2) as a sealer and top coat on a new sheet rock ceiling. Is it okay to do this, or do I need to recoat with another paint. I am using it on sheet rock that has been textured with sheet rock "mud" and also on existing walls that have satin or semi-gloss paint on them (can't remember which).

Answer: 
No... It is not intended to use as a paint top coat unless you are okay with an unfinished look. It is a primer, intended to be a base coat applied before the actual paint. It is most notable for its ability to cover stains and blemishes in the work surface not as a finish.

Kilz is a fantastic sealer (for water stains, etc) and primer. It is not a top coat and not a finished painted surface. For a proper finish you will need one or two coats of paint over the Kilz.

Hi,
This paint is easy to use and clean up and it is a good primer but; I used 2 coats of this Kilz2 over some water stain and mold stain in my garage and some of the stains bleed through. I found out later that the manufacturer recommends the original oil based Kilz if you have heavy water stain or mold stain. I hope this helps.

Answer: 
Spray the mold with bleach or Clorax to kill it. Use Kilz to cover the stain once the bleach has dried. You will then need ceiling paint to cover the Kilz if it doesn't match the rest of the ceiling.

The walls had been painted red and black...so hard to cover with any light color. We bought Kilz2 latex primer and only had to use one coat to get awesome coverage. The room was painted a light blue color and thanks to the Kilz2 latex primer the paint covered up the red and black walls. Love the easy clean up of the Latex primer, and even though I am a loyal Kilz customer, I was impressed with the complete coverage with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wowza! My husband and I just moved into an older trailer from the 60s. Horrible condition. The walls were extremely damaged and stained from nicotine, animal damages and the previous tenants had done a horrible job painting. It looked like they didn't use any primer and used a singular, very sloppy coat of eggshell finish paint. One coat of killz and one coat of flat light base paint is all it took to cover up most of the living room and hallways. I had to do some major repairs in the kitchen, peeled up old wallpaper and patched some big holes in the walls. Now smooth as a baby's butt! I heard killz was good stuff but I never would have thought it was THIS good. It is definitely on my "products to remember" list now! :D [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
