Now that it is clear what this undercoat does and skipping it is a mistake
you don’t want to make, is there any scenario in which it can be avoided?
The answer is, yes.
Typically, primers are as essential when you paint a wall for the first time,
when it is stained, if the paint to be covered is darker than the new one, if
the wall is in a bad shape or if the paint requires an adhesive.
But in cases when walls are in good shape, have zero to little stain on them
or are painted a colour similar to the new one, priming is not essential. It
can be slipped then but experts will also recommend a primer no matter
what the Wall’s condition is. Because after all, durability is a factor that
cannot be ignored and priming provided just that.
With priming down and flawless walls acting as your canvas, painting will
not only be easier but also provide the perfect finish you are looking for.
