Product is high quality, covers well and flows on smoothly. Since it is a thick product, make sure you buy enough to cover your square footage.

This Product is total Garbage!!!
This product is total garbage!!! There should be warnings all over this product advising you not to use it on drywall patches! Yet, it says it's great for sealing drywall. I have an old house and spent an enormous amount of time fixing drywall imperfections and even skim coating in areas to give myself the best substrate to apply paint to that I possibly could. This product will not bond to new drywall or patches and bubbles up on every subsequent coat of primer and paint. Terrible product!

Thank you for reaching out, Matt! New drywall may need time to cure prior to applying Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer. If wanting to seal new drywall/joint compound or spackle, we recommend starting with Rust-Oleum Zinsser Gardz Problem Surface Sealer.

    Product is a heavy base primer that covers well, using it to prime T-11 wood siding and trim. I’m using a brush to work it into the grooves in the siding. Two coats primer and then paint. Great stuff

    Grossly thin
    It took me 3 coats to cover a light tan color. Ridiculously thin coats with a half inch roller. I would never recommend this one. Spend the extra money and get better primer. It's WORTH the price vs time.

    This is not what we expect to hear, Teddy! If using a roller to apply Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer to a smoother surface, make sure you are using a lower nap roller cover. If the surface has texture to it, a higher nap should be used.

      The delivery was cancelled, for no particular reason. Then the order was transferred to Emeryville. Repeated calls by me got transfers to another dept, another store, no help. I finally had to cancel the order. The customer service sucked. I finally went to pleasant hill to personally get what I needed.

      Slightly loose for a primer. And too translucent, doesn’t cover deeper colors without multiple coats.
