I am very disappointed that this product did not prevent tannin bleed through on my pine boards. I have painted probably 100 signs this summer and 50% or more had tannin bleed through despite using this primer. I am just as shocked as you probably are because the reviews all say otherwise. What am I doing wrong??? I would buy new wood, sand, prime, sand again, prime, and then top coat with either oil or latex based paint. Both types of paint have had bleed through. So very disappointed because I will now have to strip down my signs entirely and start over as I can't sell them like this. Some signs have knot bleed through, some have streaks of tannin bleed through, and some signs are just a dinghy, slightly jaundiced white color after a week of curing... All my hard work and money down the drain. :(

Something is amiss here! Our Zinsser B-I-N Advanced Synthetic Shellac Primer is designed to seal and block tannin in wood prior to painting. Yellowing is not always caused by tannin bleed, and may also be caused by application of certain clear coatings, especially over white or light colors. We need to know more about the application and products used to get to the bottom of this. Please give us a call at 888-855-1774, we want to try to make things right! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

As a stain blocker it's decent, but if you need a water based primer with tooth this is it. We use this for priming over polyurethane, varnish, and even laquer.

I used this once before and it was wonderful. I ordered (2) more 5 gallon containers and they showed up at my house with water on the top and what could best be described as setting concrete below. There is no way to mix this up again and now it sets me back almost another week on my project.

I will be returning this.
I opened the bucket to mix it and it was water on top and like a rock on the bottom there was no mixing this stuff up very disappointing.

This primer is great to paint furniture and give it new life. I find that it works well covering up all the marks and creates a great new surface to paint on.
