How to Make Dark Topcoats "Pop" With Gray Primer

Submitted to What's New

What you put under your paint is just as important as the topcoat.  If you've ever painted a wall in a dark color, the most challenging part (besides taping) is getting good coverage so your color looks as great as it does on the color swatch.  Zinsser has a new gray primer that can help make your rich colors a reality.  Take a look at the attached image and see how using Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Gray Primer makes the dark color look more rich and true to color compared to using a white primer.  Plus the primer has all these great features!
