Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Multi purpose. Better than the best paint. This stuff is excellent. Can be tinted colors. Holds up for years. Not shiny, looks like high end flat or eggshell paint. I used it to paint our whole house. Good for wall prep, sealer, to cover bad spots or just great paint for walls. Also used it in the past under wall paper, but it is just great wall paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wallpaper Primer Glad this product exists. The old method of "priming" walls with just regular primer, then having to "size" the walls just took to much time and sometimes the results were not acceptable. April 30, 2011
