My walls are currently llama white, and a pale yellow. I'm wanting to change the color drastically to a deep bright navy. I've already used one coat of primer (blue) and was wondering however if I should do a second as the white still shines through? Also wondering if using a second coat of primer might limit the amounts of coats that I may have to do to reach the desired color?
Blue pigment has pretty good hide, so you don't have to worry as much about coverage as you would with a deep green, or worse, deep red. But if you do want to use tinted primer, a grey tinted to be the same "brightness" as the final topcoat is better than color-tinted primer. (Black pigment has the best hide of all, so if you want to cover up the white, it does a much better job than color-tinted primer.)
