Stain Eliminating Primer is available in Clear, White, and Gray, in Quarts and Gallons. It will effectively block tannins and it is an amazing bonding primer.
Here are a few tips to help you select the right color primer for your project:
- Clear primer provides all of the benefits of a surface for paint to bond to, locks in the tannins that cause bleed through, and allows you to distress down to the wood without any hint of primer peaking through. Another benefit of having clear primer on hand is that if you were to paint a dark surface, that needed great adhesion, with a dark paint color you would use less paint since you won't be jumping shades. Think about painting black over a white primer; major headache.
- With all of the same benefits of clear and gray primer, white primer is the perfect choice when you're going to be painting with a light color like creme, white or beige. This primer is the ideal problem solver when you are painting a very dark piece of furniture white or another light color. Starting with the white primer will provide you with a much lighter base as a starting point, and you will use a lot less paint to get the flawless finish you want.
- Gray primer is the ideal base coat when you're working with reds, oranges, and even pinks. Much like using white under light colors, gray primer cuts down on the amount of coats of paint you will use with these sometimes tricky colors. It's also an ideal way of transforming a light piece of furniture to a dark finish, like blues, grays and blacks. Once again, saving you time and paint, while creating a durable surface for your paint to adhere to and effectively blocking stains.
- Dark Gray primer is the perfect option when you are looking to get the deepest color saturation. It also reduces the amount of paint needed when taking a white or bright colored piece to a much deeper and darker tone, plus you still get the benefits of making it a great base coat for reds.
Good prep is key to a beautiful long lasting finish. Taking the time to prime your pieces is another key step to less paint used, more time saved and a great finished result.
