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!

How would this work if I were to use it to prime/size painted drywall before applying wallpaper?
Asked by: Rick
Thank you for reaching out, Rick! While our Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer may be used to prime painted drywall prior to hanging wallpaper, it is not a sizing primer. For priming and sizing wallpaper, we recommend applying our Zinsser Shields Universal Wallcovering Primer: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-gal-Shieldz-Universal-Water-Based-White-Primer-and-Sealer-Case-of-4-2501/204623738 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

Customer Reviews

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 1 gal. White Water Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65.
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 Bought to cover outdated tile from 1940.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.

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.

Recommended for many purposes but use oil-based Zinsser Coverstain primer for water stains. As as test, I tried this product on water-stained drywall and sure enough, it bled through. As shown on the Zinsser manufacturer's web site comparison chart, this product is not as good for water stains as the oil-based Coverstain primer. For most other purposes, it's worked well for me.

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.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great primer for many projects I have used this primer again and again over the past year doing house projects. I prime every room I paint (previously painted drywall and wood trim). I have also used this to repaint glossy black nightstands, a bed frame and a bookcase white. It’s been a year and no signs that it’s not holding up. I do buy high quality paint to go over it.

I bought this to prime a floor and applied 2 coats, then a top coat of Behr patio paint. The paint and primer has been peeling ever since. I later found some very small print stating "not recommended for floors". This is a mess that I don't know how to fix and am very disappointed with Zinsser.

I was introduced to this product on a large remodel where I was working with a skilled carpenter who ask me t pickup some primer and specified this product by name and no other. I soon found out why.

The odor of the primer bothered my client for several days with migraines and sore throat. VOCs to high for allergies. I used it where there was wallpaper removed and walls were cleaned. I had no crackleing effect,although watch the dripping because it is thinner than a Behr paint.
