B-I-N "Zinsser" Shellac Based Primer


Has anyone used this primer and will it cover slightly embossed wallpaper. How about the cleanup, does it clean up with soap and water?
Thanks so much for your advice.

Bin is a "Trouble Spot" primer. Water Stains, Wood Knots, Smoke Damage. All Shellac based products are Alcohol based. Water will barely touch them, you need to clean brushes and thin the stuff with denatured alcohol. We will always recommend that you strip wallpaper rather than try and paint over it. It is well worth the effort.

B-I-N "Zinsser" Shellac Based Primer


Mathew I did strip in the dining room, but I have the LR and Foyer to go and I don't think I'll hold up...these are very large rooms with 10 or 12ft ceilings. That's why I wanted a shortcut for these next two rooms. Any suggestions other than to strip the paper.

My house is 1913 and there are that many years of painted paper over painted paper. However when freshly painted it looks nice...although there are areas where one can see seems where paper was overlapped. I'll tackle that next time...lol.

It definitely not clean up with soap and water; only water-base coatings do that. The directions on the can should tell you how to clean it up.

Coating embossed paper with paint won't make the emboss go away, even if it hides the pattern.

If you MUST paint over the wall paper( and I would not,as even painted over paper WILL come off), this would be a better product to use.
