Yesterday i started working on my chairs. I cleaned them, sanded them and primed with Kiltz2 which is a waterbased primer that i like to use (way less smelly and makes the gun easy to clean afterwards) and guess what kept popping through? Yup those nasty bleeding stains, how fun is that ... NOT! I primed both of them anyway just so i could see where the stains were. I went straight to Home Depot and left with a spray can of Kiltz original which is an oil based primer and works the best out of all of them (just very smelly and i then don't use my paint sprayer).
Today i went back to the chairs and sprayed the new primer and it worked - no bleeding this time - woo hoo!! So now i am ready for the paint. If anyone knows a way to be able to use the water based primer and have the stain blocker actually work, please let me know. I have read on google some people suggest cleaning everything with TSP before priming but i'm wondering if there is anything less harsh that can be used. This has only happened to me twice but i would rather not have to prime twice if i dont have to.
