Zinsser cover stain primer

Posted by Kimbah (My Page) on

Hi again!

I used zinsser cover stain on my cabinets. The first coat went on fine but as I start the 2nd it doesn't go on as smoothly. The brush drags and pulls.

Does anyone know why this is? Could it be that I don't need 2 coats of primer? Could I switch to another primer such as BM fresh start for the 2nd coat. I'm using oil based primer by the way.

Thanks!

Thanks!

I'm not sure why you were doing two coats of primer or why it was dragging (too soon on recoat time, perhaps?), but I hope you found a solution last year! For some reason this popped up to the top again, and I'm just responding so this will move down again with the old posts.

No need what so ever for 2 coats of primer

It is not the primer. Try some FLOETROL in the paint, or wet your brush [with water] while applying.

Cover Stain is oil based. Floetrol is for latex paints only.

"It is not the primer. Try some FLOETROL in the paint" - plus, if I read this correctly, the OP was still using primer, not yet painting. In any case, it's an old post that popped up somehow, so I doubt it's still an issue.
