Topic tags/keywords: painting epoxy

Working on a project for my brother. Some of the wood has some pretty big knots. Can epoxy be primed and painted?

I think as long as you prime it good it should be okay. Make sure the epoxy has completely set up.

I wouldn’t think that would present any problems. It sands down like a two part filler and that’s made for taking paint.

After epoxy, I sometimes use KILZ, as a primer when painting wood with knots. This stops the knots from “bleeding” through the paint. I have a pair of adarondack chairs I painted white over knotty pine about 5 years ago, and they still have not bled through.

It can be primed. I like zinsser BIN. Best primer I’ve used.

Thanks guys. I’ve used Kilz but don’t think I’ve tried the zinsser. The Kilz has never let me down. Its some good stuff. Think I’ll try a test piece and see how it goes. It seems like just about anything that could go wrong with this project has. The last thing we need is to mess up the finish. Another question . . . . Would it be possible to use Kilz with an HVLP sprayer? I’m sure it would have to be cut . . . . but with what and how much?
