Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer
I used this primer on a deck that I had painted unsuccessfully with oil based redwood paint. I was never satisfied with the job. I decided to paint it semi-gloss white latex. The Zinsser went over the redwood oil base just like it said it would. After a bout with sanding the spindles, I decided to try and paint over the old paint and did so with excellent results. I also had a lot of green mold (or something) buildup and the Zinsser covered it also. I might need a second coat in places. I used a cheap brush and it has streaks in it. Or the finish coat might cover it all. Decisions, decisions. It's a good product.

I was very disappointed in this product
I was painting over a previously painted chest of drawers. I do not know if the previous finish was latex or oil based. I washed the pieces with soap and water as instructed by the Lowes clerk and applied 2 coats of this primer. The poor adhesion can be seen on the video attached to this review. I returned to Lowes and spoke to the same clerk, who told me I should not have used Dawn dish soap as it leaves a film. I then stripped the Zinsser primer to the previous finish, and lightly sanded all parts. The adhesion is now better, but with some force I can still remove this primer using only my finger nail. Fortunately this piece of furniture is in a seldom used guest bedroom. I don't think this paint job would hold up to everyday use.

Getting ready to buy more

I have used this product as a color blocker and also as a primer. It is fantastic. Better, in my opinion, than Kilz. Painted over a dark green, one coat, with this primer, and it was ready for the light color I then painted with, which only took one coat. I have some of that cheap paneling in the basement, which I am going to try next, cannot afford to replace it. I have done 1 panel, and it looks as though it will cover fine, so I am off to buy more. No apparent bleed through.

1. I had black mold on my basement walls that I absolutely was unable to remove. Then I painted them with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 and loved the results. The finish was white flat. Covered everything, even old rusty pipes.

2. The sealing above our shower was getting spots of black mold. We used a spray mold killer first then after a day we wiped it down and used Zinsser primer to cover the mold and it has not come back in a year. We never got around to putting a final paint coat on top yet, but it looks fine.

3. We suggest removing the mold as best you can before covering the area with the Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primer. While the product resists growth of mold and mildew, it won't get rid of it.
