Love the 2 gallon bucket!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We used 35 2-gallon buckets of Kilz 2 to prime our new drywall in our 3200 sq ft home. So nice to have a 2 gallon size!!!! We've done it all ourselves so having something this handy is great! Bonus that Kilz 2 is such a great primer!

Saved loads of time! Great product line.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I remodeled my bathroom and primed first than painted. It hid every stain and discoloration. I would say after 25 years of not doing anything to my bathroom, it now looks brand new!!!!

Used as the whole paint for some foam letters. ...
Used as the whole paint for some foam letters. Note: probably due to the porosity of the foam, took most of the quart to do the front & sides of all 4 letters (which are just under 4x4 feet each). But it covered reasonably well (needed a double coat in spots... but, well, foam). However, familiarity with the Kilz brand has me in a positive frame of mind.

I am an alcohol ink artist and this product is the ONLY way I can create my paintings on canvas. Killz 2 Primer seals the canvas completely (2 quick coats) and I can achieve my ink flow beautifully. It seals the surface pretty fast so you are ready to begin your project in no time. I love it.

KILLS sets the standard in primers and now paints
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I only buy KILZ Primers, because I can not afford the time or money to have to do a job over, and I know KILZ will get it done right the first time. As a single independent woman who takes pride in being self-sufficient, it is extremely important to me to be able to rely on the materials I buy for any job. Many years ago while shopping for paint and primer in a hardware store I asked an associate for his advice and he recommended KILZ. I followed his recommendation, KILZ worked great for that job, and I've been using it ever since. KILZ has never let me down.

Smooth interior and exterior application
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used it to prime my livingroom going from light lichen green to white and exterior shiplap on the north side of the house in dense forest on a lake where paint was peeling off in sheets. I peeled off the sheets, rough sanded and primes before winter and unexpectedly could not paint until spring and looking just as great as 5 months ago.

Great coverage
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this product to cover 1970’s paneling. Product was easy to use ( no drips) and provided a good clean surface for painting.
