Self-priming ceiling paint?


I just got finished building my new garage (something I have been waiting for for a long time). I want to paint the drywall ceiling and in the essence of time, would like to use a self-priming paint. I noticed Zinsser Perma-White eggshell and Ben Moore Muresco claim to be self-priming on new drywall. Has anyone had success using 2 coats of paint only on new drywall? In my home I would absolutely prime and 2 coats of paint but I'm not as picky for a garage ceiling.

Self priming paint and primer combos come in special, dark black, cans. You can only buy the ones that really work after or around midnight. In dark alleys. Send me a private message and I will make arrangements. Or...

Prime it!

I think that - especially on drywall - you'd want a primer to fill in the miicroscopic voids in the paper; now primers are loaded not with ultrafine titanium dioxide like finish coat paints, but with cheap talc and clays that are there for that reason only. That's why apart form the cheap PVA resin, that primers are cheap.

Now the so-called one coat primer+paint products seem to be a compromise on both fronts; they're probably good primers but they'd make lousy finish coat products just because of the way they were formulated.
