I'm changing the color of a room that is mint green to light beige (just
a little darker than antique white).
I test painted a small area and the color looks kinda of a pinkish or
corral instead of beige even after 2 coats. After 3 coats of beige it
appears to be the right color.
So today i bought a spray can of "Killz" and sprayed a small area and
let it dry and then painted on the beige and it is exactly the color
it's supposed to be.
I haven't done much painting as far as changing the color, I always
painted the room the same color or something very close.
My question is, when changing colors this drastically, are you supposed
to prime first then paint? Or, do you have to apply 3 or more coats of
paint to get the desired color?
By buying the spray can(s) of "Killz" I was just trying to to make less
work for myself but even after my small test area I see that I can't use
an aerosol because of the overspray.
BTW, I know "Killz" is for stains, spots, etc., but it is also a primer
and the only one that came in a spray can, thats the only reason I
Also, if I need to use primer, should I use an oil base, or water base?
