Ask Jane: To Prime or Not to Prime, That is the Question!
Dear Jane, I am finally going to paint my living room. Do I really need to prime first? The existing walls are white. Thanks for your help, Liza J. Dear Liza, We hate to break it to you, but yes! If you want the color to last, no peeling and otherwise have a jaw-dropping result, you must prime before you paint. One more step we know, but it’s a pretty important one. Now, you don’t absolutely have to prime every surface you decide to paint but for a wall, primer can only help you achieve a long-lasting, perfect looking job. Primers work by increasing the bond between the paint and the surface. It is particularly helpful with surfaces that were previously painted with semi-gloss or high gloss paints. There are many types out there, so it’s important to pick the right one. Here is a basic rundown: All-purpose: This is a more general term for a primer that was created to allow the strongest bond possible to solid and resistant surfaces, like metal, glass, tile and thermoplastics such as laminated plastics (melamine and Formica). It can be more difficult to work with than a conventional latex primer, but the lasting results will be the payoff. Latex stain-blocking: This a primer used when a stain is coming through to your paint. The recommended uses are for water stains though we feel that if you are trying to prevent stains from showing, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Normally, we prefer to use an oil-based or alcohol-based stain-blocking primer, but if your stain is minimal and you’re putting it on top of a water based paint, this should suffice. Oil-based stain-blocking: This primer effectively hides “permanent” stains. You will find that the odor will linger longer than a latex primer, but an oil based stain blocking primer is one of the few ways to keep stains from bleeding through your paint. This product can be used over existing latex or oil. Alcohol-based white-pigmented shellac: This type of primer is impermeable, creates a strong bond, effectively blocks smoke stains and all of the tannins and resins in wood (these are the rings in wood that can show through and stain paint) as well as block pet odors. This primer can be used over oil or water based paint. Enamel undercoat: This primer is best to be used when a desired effect is in satin, semi-gloss or high gloss paint. Once it has properly dried, it can Automobiles be sanded to produce the smoothest primed and ready to get to work! possible base for the finish coat. To be Hugs n’ hammers, used over water-based paints. Jane If you are painting with a deep color, For detailed project information and more great projects ask the store to “tint” your primer.
