can I use a lighter paint than the primer? Will it make a difference ?

Asked by: Jh
While you may use a lighter color paint then our Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Gray Primer, multiple coats of the topcoat may be necessary for even coverage. For this application, we recommend using our Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 White Primer: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Bulls-Eye-1-2-3-1-qt-White-Water-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-2004/100398398

Want to paint a metal roof that was last painted 15 to 20 years ago, roof sheets are attached with screws with rubber washers, do we need to pressure wash the roof before painting?
Asked by: Schooldoctor
To help prep the surface for Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer, we recommend making sure the surface is clean, dry, sound and free of any contamination, mildew, rust or unsound coatings that may interfere with adhesion. If unsure of cleanliness, always wash the surface with an appropriate cleaner or solvent, we do not recommend using TSP to clean the surface. Any loose or peeling coatings will also need to be removed prior to application.

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 31.5 oz. Water-Based Interior/Exterior Gray Primer and Sealer (Case of 4) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Primer's you can use! I've been using this primer for some time now. I've used other brands before, each with their own claim to fame, but nothing comes close to this. Using this primer, is super easy to apply, and cleans up effortlessly. This is the only primer I've found which actually seals knots in wood, and prevents wood sap from leaching through your paint job...It actually works. What else is their to say, except give this primer a try, and you won't regret it, nor will you go back to anything else. Well recommended product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Primer and sealer. I would recommend Bulls Eye primer and sealer, it is a great product. I used this on a board I was painting. It has smooth coverage. Goes on easy with no problem. Sticks to all surfaces without sanding. Covers deep color paint. Mold and mildew resistant. Interior or exterior use. It can be used over or under oil or latex paint. Covers up to 400 sq FT. Dries in 30 minutes. Low VOC. Easy to clean up after with just soap and water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price! This is my first time to use this brand product, and I am very impressed. Over the last 30 years, I've consistently gone to one of the other name brands as a primer. While I had the other primer on hand, I decided to use Bullseye when I needed to cover some water stains in a closet along with painting wood trim. It covered both in one coat, and this is not always the case with the other brand. If you've ever tried to paint old wood trim white, you know what I mean as itt normally involves several coats. With this product, I put one coat of primer and then coat of white paint, and it looks great. Considering this is a gray primer, only having to put one coat of paint over the gray is phenomenal. This is my new go-to primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff If you're like me, you hate painting. So when it needs to be done, you're going to do it right. After preparation, opting for the best materials is the secret to success. That's where Zinsser products come in. I recently replaced the lower sections on each of the three garage door bays. Using this primer ... I could tell the adhesion and cover were light years ahead of anything else if used in the past [the 100 sq ft/gal tells you to expect that]. Two coats of a top-quality oil-based top coat and the doors look terrific ... well at least the parts I rebuilt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers real well I liked this primer. I used it before putting down new paint in my bedroom. I had recently put up new sheetrock and noticed that the paint without the primer would show the dried joint compound through the paint. Even though it was sanded level. This primer took care of that 100%. Looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Primer Great coverage. Goes on super smooth and applies over just about any surface. Especially good over oil based paints, which is hard to do! Dries quick and you can paint over it in no time.
Date published: 2015-05-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for certain things For me, the purpose of primer is to prepare a surface for painting. A bare surface, or one that has not been painted in a long time, will soak up paint like a sponge. The first coat or sometimes two just disappears into the material. Instead of wasting expensive paint like this, I use far less expensive primer as an undercoat. That is where this stuff falls down. A quart of this costs as much as a gallon of other primer. This stuff is too expensive to use as a general undercoat on your walls. However, for other uses, it works very well. These include covering oily patches and difficult stains, woodwork - especially pine, which always seems to seep through, and specialty items like doors and furniture. It is also good on surfaces that are otherwise difficult to paint, or would result in poor adhesion, such as bare metal and plastic. So for specialty jobs, this is good to use, but it is far too expensive for widespread use. I am highly dubious of the claim that it works under oil paint, but I've never actually tested it that way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good primer, easy to use Not much to say. It's a good primer, applies evenly, and does the job. I used it on an outside shed with no problems
