Painting light blue over pink


I am painting light blue over bright pink in a girls bedroom. Should I prime with Kilz?

kilz is a great product for stains and such.. if you dont have any, i think you should be fine with buying a good cheap white flat paint to prime. i would second coat the blue anyway to bring out the body of the color more.

Painting light blue over pink


There is plenty of color pigment in blue to cover over pink. As long as you have scuff sanded your wall for better adhesion you are good to go (and many people never sand between colors, but the pros do). Any time you change colors plan on doing two coats unless you are a pro and do alot of back rolling. No need to prime with white. You are just changing what you need to hide.

Back rolling is a process of applying paint to a section, apply paint to the next section and then going back over the first section again with the same roller as the second section and so on. There are some real pros's on this message board who have wonderful painting tips for DIY's. Jsheridan is one (not leaving you others out, just not aware of your blogs and tip sections ).

get your primer tinted slightly grey this will ensure you dont end up purple

If you arte using a quality paint there is no need to prime, unless you have made repairs to the wall or have abare dry wall. Make sure the wall is clean, dry and if you have a sheen on it now then scuff sand it and apply 2 coats of a quality paint using a quality brush and roller. Keep a wet edge, cut and roll one section at a time to avoid hatbanding and don't use a dry roller, keep it wet.
