When it comes to painting and decorating, you might think it’s as easy as painting straight onto a plastered or pre-painted wall. In reality, there are a few steps you should take prior to painting your colour on, including the use of primers and undercoats. A primer works as a foundation, preparing the wood or metal so that any further coats of paint adhere correctly. An undercoat, usually sold in white, works to create a clean slate for new paint colours. So, if you are working on a previously painted surface, you should use an undercoat, but if your surface has never been treated, it’s best to use a primer.
