Clear Bonding Primer

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Size

When painting a very slick or smooth surface (e.g., laminate furniture, glass, metal) you may need some extra help with adhesion to ensure the paint will stick and stay put for years to come.

Our Clear Bonding Primer takes the stress out of painting those tricky surfaces. It is ultra low VOC and contains no harmful solvents, making it safer than many other primers. And because this primer is clear, you can still see the natural wood color underneath which is perfect if you’re going for a whitewashed or distressed look!

Clear Bonding Primer Product Features:

  • Bonding agents allow the paint to adhere to any smooth surface
  • Very easy to apply -- just brush it on
  • Eco-friendly and water-based, so very safe to use
  • Dries completely clear
  • Contains NO harsh chemical additives such as phthalates, formaldehyde, heavy metals, or solvents*

PLEASE NOTE: Does not block bleed-through from tannins or nicotine.

Bonding Primer is a game changer

I’ve struggled with primer choices when using darker paints on surfaces that need a bonding primer yet I want to distress. This solves all the problems and was a game changer for me!

Great everything!

I started refinishing my grandparents table a year ago. I stripped it and stained it but never put a top coat on because I DID NOT want to polyurethane it. I just don’t love the look of polyurethane. I had already stained my table so I reached out to Country Chic to ask what to do. Mary responded to me the next day (which I thought was quick) and was so helpful! I asked more questions and she called me! I have mad respect for someone who understands that communication through a phone call can be way easier than email. Anyways Mary recommended using the clear bonding primer before the tough coat since I had already stained my table with MinWax. The two products together loo amazing, went on so smooth, I didn’t use much product (and I did more than just the table), and are the look I was dreaming of. I can’t wait to finally not cringe when someone doesn’t use a coaster lol I’ll definitely be a repeat customer.

Primer used on dark wood.

I painted an old bookshelf with Old Mustard chalk paint. Unfortunately, I realized a bit late that I should have used a primer so I ordered some with an extra jar of paint . It did make a difference, I had used 4 coats on the majority of the shelf but only needed 2 or 3 with the primer. I might even try 2 coats of primer next time to save on the actual paint.

Fantastic Product

I used the Primer before applying the first coat of Licorice Chalk Paint with your round sponge. The application was the easiest coat I’ve ever done. Highly recommend these products for beginner and experienced painters.
