Rated 5 out of 5 by from COVER STAIN is the best primer to seal in Smoke This is hands down the best primer to cover smoke smell on drywall. Even after washing the walls, I tried the Killz Exterior and Interior Primer, and the Bullseye 1-2-3. The COVER STAIN was the best (also the hardest to work with as its oil based), followed by the Bullseye and the Killz last. This has a very strong scent though, so if you can't handle the fumes, open up some windows.

I find that it covers better and lays smoother than others. Since it is oil based it doesn't raise the grain of wood the way that latex primer tends to do which saves time and more importantly money.

Am i required to use a paint after using this product? Which colors does this cover stain available?

Asked by: Wony
The primer itself dries to a matte finish. On previously white surfaces, it dries to off-white color. On previously colored surfaces, the paint can be visible through (I painted over medium blue). In summary, you don't have to have paint over this primer, under following conditions: - you like matte finish - you like off-white color - you are priming over white surface, then one layer of primer is enough - if you are priming over concentrated color, then you would need 2 layers of primer - you don't mind strong lacquer-like smell hanging in your house for a long time (paint over it cuts the smell some)
