Can this be used on unfinished wood to get a white wash effect?

Can this be used on unfinished wood to get a white wash effect?
Asked by: Painter
Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer and Sealer can be used on unfinished wood. one thing to keep in mind is that water-based finishes can sometimes call grain raise so you may need to lightly sand after applying the primer and apply another thin coat. We hope this helps!

When applying to cabinets do you have to sand the surface or can you just roll yhis on then paint over

Asked by: Joe
Happy to help, Joe! Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer and Sealer bonds to glossy surfaces without needing to scuff sand. Make sure the surface is clean, dry, sound and free of dust, dirt, excessive chalky material, grime, grease, oil, wax, mildew, wallpaper, adhesive or any contamination that may interfere with adhesion. If unsure of cleanliness, always wash the surface with an appropriate ammoniated cleaning solution or solvent (do not use TSP as a cleaner).

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 1 gal. White Water Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 36.

Have used over and over to prime both latex AND oil-painted surfaces - drywall, door trim, baseboard, cabinetry. No need to sand first, even if it's a glossy oil-painted surface. Great job of covering dark colors and stains, too. You can put latex, oil or alkyd paints on top of it, no problem at all. It's thick -- so stir well before using. If it's too thick to roll smoothly, add a little water. I use a mini roller on door trim for fast coverage, then tip off with a brush so no roller stippling remains. Dries fast -- about an hour. Then you can paint. WALLPAPER REMOVAL If you're removing wallpaper -- once you've got the paper off, roll on a coat of Zinsser Gardz to lock down any remaining wallpaper glue so it won't reactivate when it comes into contact with water-based paint. Gardz is VERY runny and VERY hard to get off floors once it dries, so cover floors first. You do NOT want to spill that stuff and let it dry. THEN -- throw a coat of Bullseye 123 on top of the Gardz coat and you're back in business.

I purchased this for priming a room with painted drywall and stained rough cedar for three reasons: Covers cedar tannin, light water marks, and crayon marks. All three bled through two coats of this product. Zinsser was nice enough to refund the price of one of the gallons, but I had to paint a 24 x 24 room a second time. I went back to oil-based odorless Kilz. One coat covered it all with no bleed through.

Three coats over old water stains on my ceiling and the stains are still very visible. This product MAY work just fine as a standard primer, but I would not recommend it as a stain blocker. Time to try another product...

Adheres well, in fact be sure to wear gloves cuz it's very difficult to get off your skin. It covers stains and odors. Forget the primer/paint-in-one products, one coat of anything never works. Recommend tinting close to your final color.

Wanted to paint over the wallpaper covered wall board in a mobile home, washed it with soap and water to remove grime, used two coats of this primer and paint adhered no problem, and covered small imperfections. Now, three years later it still looks great!

I've used Zinsser 123 for a variety of challenging primer jobs but I was pleasantly surprised recently with how well it worked on bare baseboards and casings. With 2 coats the grain was completely hidden and the color was uniformly white. Virtually no sanding required and the topcoat went on very smoothly. I would definitely use it again on bare trim.

I always use this before painting any semigloss. I do a light sanding first, then the Zinsser primer, and then the semigloss. Comes out great, and the semigloss will stick properly and last forever.
