Primer for paint?

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I am doing an exterior mural on a cedar fence. I am using multiple colors after priming the fence white. I plan on sealing the whole thing when I finish. I was wondering if I could get away with not buying white paint and just letting the primer show through where white is needed. In those areas it would be primer then sealer: Would this be a problem at all?

Do not use primer as a finish even if you will be coating with a sealer. The sealer will not protect the primer from any UV rays as it takes color to do so.
