Will Ben Moore tint my Kilz which I bought at Home Depot? or should I buy Ben Moore primer?

If it were me,I would skip the Kilz and go with BM primer and paint

okay, its done. i went to BM and they could not tint the Kilz I bought at the Depot. They recommended Zinsser Cover Stain so I used that, then I will topcoat with a BM latex.

Its looks okay so far.

Thanks all

ok, why would you need to use dif AFTER you have already washed with tsp? doesn't make sense. washing with tsp is the last thing you should do before priming.

also, if you have washed the walls with tsp and rinsed well, a latex primer will work fine. try the new BM Natura primer as it is zero-voc. Then paint it with BM Natura paint as well. Forget the oil based primer, it is bad for you health.

You really need to remove all the paste before painting.Washing with TSP is good but not always successful. Priming with Gardz,or an oil based primer insures that the paste is locked in, latex primer will not do this.

okay so turns out I wasn't done. the tinted primer did not work as well as i thought because i still had to put two coats of latex over top.

is it possible to get primer tinted to the exact colour of the paint going over it? or is that not what it is intended for?

i have to do a big room in my basement and paint over paneling, so i'd like to get another tinted primer and hopefully do one coat of latex...

thanks

Primer does not have the tint bases availed that paint does so stick with something like 60 percent of the formula so you can see what you are doing---especially with light colors.

The concept of one coat wall coverage is one of the most misleading and evil concepts the paint industry ever set loose on the unsuspecting public and the DIY community. Every once in awhile, if you are covering exactly the same color, you might pull it off but always plan on two coats, or at least one and a fair amount of touch-up, for best results.

Always wash the brushes you use out between uses (don't just let them sit in water). Wrap your roller covers in plastic and stick them in the fridge (with a "do not eat" sign if you have hungry teens) so you don't have to rinse them out between coats (losing the paint in them in the process). I personally have trouble running fresh water for 15-20 minutes, at 8-12 gallons per minute, to rinse out a $3-4 roller cover but you can when you are done if you want.

Yup, all of the above, especially the "evil concepts" part The only exception with primer I know of is Zinsser Deep Tint(and they promote the one topcoat BS, too), but a good, long lasting paint job still requires two coats of paint. Huge difference in durability with two coats vs one.

We did this in two bathrooms, years ago. No problems. However, you need to check some basic tips to see if your bathroom is a candidate for this. We chose to do this instead of stripping 5 layers of wallpaper, each with a different adhesive. It would not have been fun! Painting was a snap.

This article can help you figure out if you could paint over bathroom wallpaper:
