Questions & Answers

Q:I would like to paint dynasty Ethereal mood over a deep red in a bathroom. Should I prime first?
by|Jan 5, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Sandra, thank you for reaching out with your question. Our Dynasty Paint is guaranteed to cover in one coat when tinted to a One-Coat Color, like Ethereal Mood, and applied over a previously coated surface. While a separate primer is not necessary, porous surfaces may require additional coats for uniformity. If the surface is porous, I recommend priming your bathroom with our Kitchen, Bath & Trim Primer (75) before painting to help minimize the number of coats needed. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any other questions. -Lina

        A:  This will cover up to 2000 square feet.

        by|May 5, 2019

          A:  Hi Sam, thank you for your question. Each gallon of Marquee paint covers about 250-400 square feet. A 5-gallon bucket should cover about 1250-2000 square feet. Keep in mind that the spread rate may be impacted by your surface's porosity, as more porous surfaces soak in more paint. Good luck with your project, and happy painting! -Joanna

            Disappointing to have a guaranteed one coat application to find out that there were multiple spot...
            Disappointing to have a guaranteed one coat application to find out that there were multiple spots that shown tiny little spots. The "best" rollers (puple $10/3pk) were used for 7 different colors (10 gallons total) (Eggshell and Satin all Marquee). New primer (Zinnser 123) on all surfaces allowed to dry for more than 2 days. The paint is nice and thick but the paint needs 1-1/2 to 2 coats and yes wet roller not half dry like many amatuers. It came out nice but took twice as long for twice the price.

                Superior Application and Color Match
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this product in the Half Sea Fog to paint our living room. We purchased our first home and I am not sure that the walls had ever been repainted since it was built in 2006. I’m blown away by how easy this paint was to apply, that there was no dripping or issues with flying drops, and the color is exactly what I thought it would be. Definitely will be a lifelong customer of this brand of paint.

                  Dining Room in Milkweed Pod
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I chose the Behr color Milkweed Pod for my dining room and powder bathroom, and I absolutely love it! Only had to do one coat, and it looks flawless! The original paint was cheap painters grade so this is a major up grade!

                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've used this paint a few times and been pleased with the results each time. Recently, I reopened a 4 year old, partially used can and it still worked great.
