I had water spots and used Kilz and now the Kilz is bleeding through my ceiling paint.

  • did you use a stain blocking primer after the kilz? – JACK May 17 at 23:13
  • How long has the ceiling been drying? Ceiling paint will be slower to dry over kilz than elsewhere. That will make the area appear darker until fully dry. – Kris May 17 at 23:57

    Has the issue that caused the water spots been fixed? – statueuphemism May 18 at 0:08

    I find kilz to be only moderately effective and only on minor staining, I use Zinsser shellac based primer if i want to cover with confidence. – Alaska Man May 18 at 0:21

    @isherwood Correctamundo but they got some that's for medium stains and some for tough stains so that might have been the problem. – JACK May 18 at 0:52
