Re: How primer affects paint color
Ok Iam gonna chim in here. I know a couple of painters that have been painting since before I was born let alone potty trained lol. So here is what I was told by them about this when I asked. they said primer does affect the hue or shade of the color IE if you spray gray primer and a green top coat on one fender then spray redoxide primer on another and put the same green on it it sill be a different shade and if you use a black primer still another shade. they have been doing this along time since acrilic laquer was popular. So take it for what it is.
