    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 coats and still didn't cover eggshell baby blue latex paint This used to be a great primer and covered everything. Used it years ago for dark wood paneling and 2 coats covered it completely. Not anymore. Paint was delivered 2 weeks late on Oct 6 2020. On Oct 8 2020 we used it. 4 coats later we still have pale blue walls with roller marks everywhere. This was completely stirred with a drill for paint mixing, so it wasn't for lack of mixing. We bought a 5 gallon bucket and have used most of it for just one 12x12 room that had been painted previously with eggshell baby blue paint. Don't waste your money on this primer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have no idea how this has ANY stars! This primer was runny!! Drips terribly!! Horrible media to work with!! SIX coats of this product was not enough to cover a water stain on the ceiling! (You can forget about using this product to cover a darker shade of paint on the walls!)

    Am I able to use this over previously painted kitchen cabinets without removing old paint? So i can re paint them?

    Asked by: angela
    Hi Angela, If your painted cabinets are made of wood, we recommend our Zinsser Cover Stain instead. Then you can top coat with the paint of your choice.

    Can I use this product on my radiator?

    Asked by: rebeccah
    Hi Rebeccah, Our Bulls Eye 123 can withstand heat up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. If you believe the surface temperature will exceed that once turned on, we do not recommend using this primer as it will not hold up.

    I am not sure if it would work on the poly outdoor chair because it is plastic.

    My husband and I are repainting inside our house. Currently the walls have semigloss paint on them and we are changing over to eggshell. Would this primer work for this? Color is changing from a burnt red to a dark purple for the one wall. S. Koch

    Asked by: Steph
    As long as the painting is not done in the bathroom or kitchen, you can use the bull's eye to prime the walls.
