Paint primer is designed to provide a stable surface that subsequent paint layers can lock onto. Paint primer also helps to hide surface stains.
If you have little confidence about the condition of your surface prior to painting, the default choice is to prime it.
Provides a stable base surface.
A surface’s porosity is the condition that most often warrants the use of a paint primer. When the surface porous, too much of the paint will draw into the surface. Multiple coats of paint are required before the paint can develop a thick, protective shell.
The opposite can be a problem, as well. When the surface is glossy, colour coat adhesion is difficult because the paint cannot lock onto the surface. Paint primer, being slightly rough and porous, provides an excellent texture for the paint to grab onto.
Covers stains and blocks bleed through.
Most woods can be easily painted. However, there are a few special types that can cause a condition called ‘bleed through.; Bleed-through on wood furniture is the tannins or stains of the wood coming through the paint layer. It can happen right away after the first coat of paint or sometimes it waits until you seal the furniture.
If you have not applied a primer and see some ‘bleed through’ then stop painting and allow the paint to dry first before covering the affected area and the surface around. Use Soul Decor Block and Prime to seal the affected area allowing you to continue painting.
Changing paint colour from dark to light.
Avoid the problems that come with repeatedly laying down a light coloured paint over darker colours. Instead, first treat the surface with two layers of white primer if the existing colour is extremely dark. Also, because primer is typically less expensive than paint, it makes economic sense to use primer for base coats rather than paint.
