Painting Tip- Use a tinted primer when painting dark colors

We recently painted the walls of a new addition with Sherwin Williams paint- Carnelian. You can see from the picture, that the Carnelian color is a deep purple. Instead of using a normal, un-tinted white primer, the painters from BrushMasters used a tinted primer. The benefit is there will be less ‘bleed through’ of the primer coat after each coat of paint. Some deeper base paints could take 3,4,5 or even more coats.

Good Luck
