Works great!

I had another color on my cabinets I had tried and didn’t like that was dark and it covered it up perfectly before I went in with a light color!

Amazing Primer!!

I am so impressed with this primer. It has no odor and covers extremely well. I had tricky walls to cover and it did a fantastic job. Thankful as always to Clare for making a quality product!

Great quality primer

The primer was great to work with and covered really well. Went on easy and wasn't too drippy even with using it on the ceiling. One gallon was enough for one coat on our living room walls and ceiling.

Fantastic, odorless primer

We painted (diy) the interior of our cottage-style home with all Clare paint (first time to use). This primer is odorless, goes on smooth, and effectively covered dark blue and teal walls! Won't use any other paint brands moving forward! Shipped fast and efficiently packed (included stirrers, can openers, and tips). Easy to return unopened cans. Super friendly customer service!!
