Primers & Undercoats
Wall primer or undercoat paint is required before applying the upper layers of paint to any surface. Primer seals porous areas and will ensure a longer-lasting coat. Undercoats of paint are particularly valuable when trying to cover a dark or heavily pigmented colour. This prevents the previous paint from showing through. There are many varieties of basecoat paint. Some primer paints create a barrier to stop wood from bleeding, while others offer fast-drying or easy to clean surfaces.
