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!

Can I use this to prime a steel entry door before I use a latex paint
Asked by: sj
Thank you for reaching out! Even though our Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer is a water-based primer, it is rust inhibitive, and may be applied to a steel door to prime and seal the metal prior to painting with a latex paint. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

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 4.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! Product works excellent. Bought to cover outdated tile from 1940. Used one coat of Zinsser 123 and bonded right to the tile. Trick is to let the Zinsser dry and really cure over night before you put a base coat on. Then put two coats of paint on. And if youre using this in the bathroom, dont use the shower or bath while applying the paint, until its fully cured and dried. I was leery about using this product because of the smell it might put off. Label reads low odor, but I also read reviews that it was an awful ammonia smell. It has a stonger smell compared regular paint. You can smell the ammonia, but it was not bad at all. Just open the windows and get good ventalation and it will be fine. When I woke up in the morning I didnt smell anything in the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one and only primer I trust I've used Zinsser 123 forever, and I've tried other primers, but I end up coming back to Zinsser primer. It covers well, sands nicely, and most of all: It STICKS like it's supposed to! It does have a strong odor while it's drying. It's probably the solvent or ammonia evaporating, which probably helps to melt and adhere to the paint layer underneath. The Plus version has less VOC (less smell.)

Tried using this on a vertical ceramic tile wall that is texturized to look like slate, per the can instructions saying it would be dry in 15 minutes, I painted latex over 24 hours later. Within hours parts of the primer and paint were bubbling and peeling from the tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen cabinets We used Bulls Eye to prime our kitchen cabinets before painting them white. We never sanded the finish off the cabinets and the primer adhered perfectly. We have a two and a four year old who are very hard on the cabinets and we haven't had any problems. I recommend this primer to anyone looking for a strong primer that will last.

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" :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought it because it was on an 'introductory sale" and 50% off rate otherwise I would have bought a known brand.. Had professional painters use BullsEye123 last year to paint a 100 year-old pressed metal ceiling that was badly flaking and for a kitchen ceiling and wall and other ceilings. AMAZING cover over scraps, spakle, stains and blemishes. So amazing that we just did the one coat of BullsEye and didn't bother about the top coat of ceiling paint and I could get the job done in less days work. Only trouble is that in Australia it costs $A60 ($US50) for 4 litres (just over 1 gall) - I guess that's the price we have to pay for living in the world's best country.

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.
