When I opened my first can of this product it seemed like it had really separated, so I started mixing it. This seemed to take forever, and it never got completely smooth. I started using it and it brushed on with little tiny chunks. Is this normal or did the product get too cold at some point? I purchased it and drove straight home to start my project, but since I live in the upper midwest and it's been hovering around zero I'm wondering if it got too cold at some point prior to my purchase.
Asked by: MHoffman
Yeah, that's my guess, it got frozen some point along the way. Going on, this primer is really smooth and thick - kind of milky, not much pigment to it, but seals up nice. I used it after wall paper removal and the drywall repair that follows. When I think about it, next time I'd probably ask them to tint it with more white to improve it's hiding capabilities.

Asked by: fatman
Sure. It's a great primer for that application. At Jcb Painting we use it all the time for just that type of work. It gives a good solid foundation for prep work before applying your finish paint coats.

Asked by: ppppppp
We are remodeling right now and we’re trying new tricks to get the results we want. Zinsser is an awesome product. It’s as thick as syrup. One of an artists styles is this formula: You can put oil paint over water based paint, but you can’t put water based over oil. I suggest you try a test run on a small piece and see what happens. Good luck!

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 1 gal. White Water-Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 248.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Cover even for Grout, Aluminum and Tile This is simply amazing stuff! As I never could stand the brown colors in the 1" ceramic tiles on my bathroom floors, hate grout in general, couldn't afford to have this removed & replaced with vinyl, my project concept was to paint over it all with white epoxy paint and add tiny chips of blue and black to the finished product. The Home Depot people are FABULOUS and recommended this amazing latex no-fume primer which was very user friendly with both brush and roller. As there was much discoloration on some white vinyl and on the aluminum uprights of my shower doors, I used it on these, too! TERRIFIC results. Next day did the Latex one-step epoxy paint treatment and added the tiny chips...looks incredible and brand new. Like we have a white granite floor! I have several other fix-it uses planned for this. It's my new cover-it-up for anything "best friend" :-)

He recommended this product and said 1 coat should do. I have covered the trim in 3 coats now and almost think it could use a 4th. Surely there is as better product out there that can cover in less than 3 coats!

I spent hours trying to sand a chest with intricate details with very little success before deciding to use this primer (which I had tinted to my base color). In a matter of minutes I had primed and painted. Dries quickly and smoothly. The next coat was a breeze. I highly recommend this product

On a surface free of dust/grease/wax, this will provide a good base and stain cover.For dark stains (like old tar) you will need put on a couple of coats to block the stain let it dry between coats.

In the past applying this primer really hid the previous topcoat color, even if it was very dark. The new formulation appears very thin compared to the primer maybe 5 years back. Previous topcoat very evident after application. Almost like a thin white wash. Too bad.

It's also now available in a gray tinted version which is good for dark topcoats. This primer sticks to slick surfaces and blocks water stains well. I use it mainly on raw wood before topcoating with semigloss paint.
