Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh quality. Not worth the money. Tried the Zinsser because Stix or Kilz wasn't available It was not the same quality. Even with a wet edge the Zinsser finish was uneven and gummy. Never had that problem with any other primer. Perhaps it would work if sprayed, but I won't try it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primer for Shed I use Zinsser for all of my primer needs. I love that it is water based and no strong smell. It worked great on our outside wooden shed before painting. It dries fairly quick, and if you wait long enough, you might be able to paint over it the same day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality primer Zinsser Bulls Eye primer is a quality primer for preparing your surface to paint. I used this on sanded birch plywood prior to paint for making cornhole boards. Due to the surface of the plywood, it did need two coats, but that is to be expected on a porous surface such as wood. Zinsser is my go to for paint prep as it is always consistent and good quality.

I painted my wood trim about 20 years ago with Flecto varathane in colours (white). Since it is a polyurethane paint, will Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primer stick to this without sanding?

Can I use for torn drywall? I need the mold / mildew protection because it is located in bathroom
Asked by: kkurn
Happy to clear things up. Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer does have resistance to mold/mildew. For priming torn drywall, however, you would need to apply the Rust-Oleum Zinsser Gardz Primer first. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-GARDZ-5-gal-Clear-Water-Based-Interior-Problem-Surface-Sealer-2300/203325628 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

will this sealer stop bleeding from BC Royal Cedar Shingles

Asked by: Boyce
No the 1-2-3 will not stop bleeding from any natural wood. The product you need is the BIN shellac based sealer to stop sap burns in painted surfaces

Asked by: Lisa
Good question, Lisa. As long as the Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer will not be exposed to any direct heat or flames, you can certainly paint the fireplace surround. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Can you simply use this as the only coat or do you need to apply paint over it?

Asked by: Aaron
If you tint it to the colour you want then this would work fine and the one coat should be fine. It is the best primer to hide small issues and smooths out the wall.

Can this product be used over wood that has been stained or lacquered or painted with melamine?

Asked by: Kim F
Hi Kim F, Yes, our Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Base Primer can be applied to wood that has been stained or lacquered or painted with melamine. Make sure to clean the surface well, and lightly scuff sand to abrade really smooth surfaces. As always, it's best to test on a small area first.
