  • For stains you are unable to remove, a pigmented primer may be necessary. Multipurpose water-based primers have stain blockers to help cover light imperfections. 
  • For darker stains, a shellac-based primer may be necessary to cover the stain and stop it from bleeding through your topcoat. 
  • Once dry, paint over the area with your paint of choice.
