Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Ok so we decided to paint our living room, but neither one of us has ever painted anything. I read a couple tips online awhile back and that's the extint.
The two end walls are red like so:
And we've decided to paint them "Toffee Crunch". We went with a separate primer instead of built-in.
So we have an untinted primer (Kilz2) and we've started to primer one of the walls. It seems like it's not hiding the red. When you go to even out the primer it seems like it pulls the primer off in places as we go. leaving blotchy areas. We've tried adding more primer to our roller then the primer smears and when we even it out it still seems to have spots were the red is still showing through a bit.
Is this normal?
Are we doing something obviously wrong?
Should we expect to do two coats of primer on a dark wall like this?
