Can you use black primer for white paint? Some painters only ever use one or the other. I find black primer is better for metallic paints, but white is better for almost everything else. It’s easier to get dark colours to cover white primer than it is to get pale colours to cover black primer.
Can you paint over black paint? Use multiple coats of the best primer to cover dark paint
Usually, you can get away with one coat of primer. But when it comes to painting over a dark color with a lighter one, two coats of primer(literally) put an extra layer between the colors and reduce the chances that the dark color will bleed through.
Does primer color affect paint color? While it is true you do cover up the primer with your paint, the primer still impacts how the paint looks once it is dry. Black paint on black primer does result in fewer coats of paint. Using a black primer on other colors makes the paint look deeper and more vibrant.
