What's Everyone Think About Zinsser Primer??


Hello again,

I have a can of Zinsser Bullseye 123 Primer that was opened and used once, the can was sealed well. I went to open it and use it again today and when going to mix it, found alot of the color on the bottom in clumps. The primer is NOT dried up, but clumping on the bottom. Is there a trick to mixing this so that i have some white pigment to the primer?

Thanks,
Sellncars

Mix briskly with a paint stick, or mix with a drill/paddle, or have the paint store shake it up.

I personally like 123, but really depends on the application.
I mix it 30/70 with Gardz for a really kick-a$$ w/c primer.

If you're a regular, most paint stores will stir for free. I use BM.

Well i took the advise, i took the paint stick and mixed it for maybe 5 minutes, and you were correct it did come around. This is suppose to be a good primer from what i have read. I personally haven't used it, this was at my parents house sitting on the shelf not being used.

Thanks guys,
