Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good primer I find that this is a good primer when covering a uniform coloured surface with no heavy stains, examples would be pre-painted surfaces or new drywall. If you want to cover wood knots I would strongly recommend one of the other Zinsser primers (Zinsser Bin Primer Model: EB100040).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the cash, but read the remarks ...... I had very light greying of the drywall caused by mildew/mold. After lightly dry wiping the work area, I applied the BE123 and it covered the areas with no problem. I waited a few hours and reapplied a 2nd coat of the primer. Smell of paint was no problem, I did have a mask on because I was wiping down the moldy drywall earlier, but still, the smell was acceptable. Worked well for my situation, which was covering up mildew/mold caused by improper venting. Other situations will be different. cheers **** oh ya, I was so impressed with the product, I did the whole room with it; just being prudent

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hiding primer Pros: Great Hiding, easy spreading, wonderful product for plaster, drywall, wood. Cons: OK at sealing. Could be a little better in this category when sealing metal that has accumulated some rust. It tends to allow bleed throughs of rust after a few months to a year or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a Bulls Eye Product performed as advertised, was easy to work with. No offensive odour and easy cleanup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Primer This is the second time I have primed this coffee table. First time I thought the problem was my prep so I stripped it and got exactly the same result a second time. Paint drips off of the can, the finish is bumpy and it doesn’t cover well. I am going to have to sand it again and try another primer. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad advice I used the white primer previously with no issues. I had to prime ceilings and they only had grey in stock...I asked the clerk if this would be OK to use for a white ceiling, she said ya, its good because you can see where you have painted...this is true but it took 3 coats of paint to hide the primer, where as with the white I could have gotten away with one coat...very aggravating...

I am painting over a bright red room, will one coat of this primer be enough or should I do two layers?

Asked by: annie00
Hi annie00, Once coat of our Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer should be sufficient. However, you can paint one coat of primer in a small area on the wall and then apply your topcoat. This way you can see if the colour bleeds through and whether a second coat is needed.

We’re currently renovating what the previous home owners used as a workshop into a spare bedroom. The walls had some marks on them so I used this primer, however the stains continue to leak through. Trouble is, we don’t know what the stains are. Ideas?

Asked by: Ardon12
Use an oil based primer, then recoat later with water-based Bullseye 1-2-3.

Can this primer be used prior to epoxy my garage floor?

Asked by: Lilster
I would not use this product prior to epoxy on your garage floor.  We used the product to hide water stains on drywall.  Whenever I painted my garage floor, I pressure washed it first and thoroughly let it dry and I used standard alkyl floor paint.  Your epoxy paint is properly a superior product the standard floor paint.

Hello Some children wrote on interior drywall with sharpie markers. Will this cover the marker?

Asked by: ArtMike333
Hi ArtMike333, If it was a solvent-based Sharpie, our Bulls Eye 123 is suitable to cover the marker stains. If the Sharpie is water-based, you will want to use an oil-based primer such as out Zinsser Cover Stain to block the stain.

should I use sponge roller, low nap roller or brush to apply to get the smoothest finish over wood?  Some say sponge roller, but others say bubbles are a huge problem?

Asked by: Misswind
I used a low nap roller on a concrete floor. I did not have any problem with bubbles.

Can this primer be used on tiles in a bathroom shower? The only product I have seen so far that is a waterborn bondin primer is Insl-X and it is not availble in Ontario. I would like to paint my shower walls to clean than up rather than replacing.

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi NancyWalker, Our Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 will not hold up in showers and will peel away from the surface. For tiles in a bathroom shower, we recommend our Specialty Tub & Tile Refinishing kit.
