Mythic Drywall Primer Applied on Old Drywall

5 February, 2009 | Posted by Marvyn

I was at my local Mythic Paint distributor and discovered that Mythic makes two types of primers: drywall Primer for new construction and multipurpose for existing walls. I have been using some leftover Mythic Paint drywall primer to get Jagger’s nursery ready. So far it’s done a good job of covering some dark blue and orange paint. I also applied it to wallpaper (I’m a bit pressed for time to try to chemically remove or steam it off). I should note that I did prep the walls a bit by scuffing it up with 150 grit sandpaper. So far so good.

In a 5 gallon container, the multipurpose primer is roughly $70 more expensive than the Drywall primer. So unless the paint starts peeling tomorrow, I’m going to have to say you save your money and stick to the drywall primer.
