Asked by: Bob
shellac is more heavy based and dose not lay down well. you will have a better finished product with less sanding with coverstain

is this good for covering old paint that maybe lead
Asked by: geo
Our Zinsser Cover Stain adheres well to all types of previous paint. Lead is toxic, so it is important to wear a NIOSH approved respirator if scraping or sanding lead paint. As long as the paint is in good condition, sanding is not necessary prior to applying the Cover Stain; the surface should just be clean and dry prior to priming.

We have moved into another house and my wife didn't like the ugly color on two of the wooden vanities. A very light once-over with fine sandpaper and a coat of this Zinsser primer and it was ready for a new color of latex paint. Both turned out great. This house also has a large basement and the original owner built, but never painted, a number of large wooden shelves which he immediately stacked old oily/greasy car parts and Lord knows what else on. I just wiped them off and used Zinsser primer before using a tough latex paint to cover them. The primer and paint have stuck to the wooden shelves very well. This stuff works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Worked as advertised. Blocked out stains and any bleed through. Converted our old medium dark brown trim to white. Used the primer WITHOUT sanding the trim then came back and sprayed the trim white with Behr Ultra in Satin. Looks awesome with no bleed through. The Ultra by itself did have some bleed through. Paint adheres well to trim even after 3 months and multiple bumps to the baseboard with the vacuum and such. Clean up with the oil based was messy even with thinner so would just recommend to throw away brushes when done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst primer ever must have a bad batch I've used many many gallons of oil based primers... this seemed thin from the start. I followed directions for spray application and painted my house 7 days now and it still scrapes right off with my finger nail. Only thing that seems to have dried is the bare wood were it still needs at least one coat of another primer. Very very frustrating also it softened the paint underneath so I probably will have to strip all the primed areas

I have used for many years for high end painted furniture, cabinets and woodwork. Excellent bonding filler primer and sands easily. This is an oil base primer and should stay that way rather than water base.

Water stains, tannin, etc. Latex (water) based primers do not work for some applications...this is where oil based primers excel. Zinsser Cover Stain works well!
