Covering up ink


Ugh, so I made some marking on the walls where to put access panels in the ceiling and the ink keeps bleeding through. I am using Zinsser Bulleys 1-2-3 primer. Suggestions?

Kilz? I have no affiliation with the company below, just Googled Kilz and found a decent description. Says covers ink:

yeah, I think I am going to pick up some killz 2 at HD today and give it a shot. Totally didn't think about what I was doing when I made the marks.

I think there are some unsatisfactory results with the Kilz 2 product, but I'm just repeating what I have read here, no personal experience. I'd suggest you wait to hear what some of the painting experts suggest. I'm sure they will reply soon.

Covering up ink


Remove the ink. Use a variety of solvents start with ETOH, naphthalene spirits, mineral spirits, paint thinner, elbow grease, tar based soaps.

Prime and paint.

Rubbing alcohol should remove the ink too. But maybe not if you've already painted over it.

Yep, nothing better. Sounds like it's just a few lines, so just pick up a spray can of Zinsser BIN. Next time, use a pencil
