Do I need to spot prime over this?

debbie1000August 4, 2012

My daughter's room is light yellow, latex paint. She had decorated using friend's handprints of darker/different colors using acrylic water based paint from Joann's (the little 2 ounce bottles).

I want to repaint a medium beige and will prime and then paint. Should I spot prime over the handprints first in addition to the regular priming or will that make those areas darker and show up more?

My thought would be to use Kilz to seal the hand prints and then prime as usual.

More of an issue is the "raised-profile" the hand-prints will show!!'ll "feather-sand" the edges of each print.
Important?? Also...YES.

I'd use a ~100-grit sanding sponge, then remove ALL traces of dust, then prime everything evenly.
Lastly...your 2 coats of new paint!

Id use a better stain-blocker than Kilz!
Grab Zinssers' 123, or C2-One (much harder to find!), or...Gliddens' Gripper primer @ HD.
