Default Covering Maroon Paint

Look's like I'm about to get my 2nd job in a month covering up Maroon. The first job the HO wanted to cover it with, Daisy SW 6910, a very bright yellow. HO has allergies so requested I use Harmony. I used 1 coat of tinted Harmony prime, 2 coats of Harmony E/S Paint. I wasn't pleased w/ it but the HO was very pleased. So this time I know I'm not using Harmony, but does any have an idea for a primer that will cover maroon well? Have no clue yet what color will be going on top but it is in a play room so I'm sure it'll be something really bright.

Use Aura if you can- have BM match the color if it's not their own. If the HO isn't down with this, at least use Aura as a primer or something for the first coat, (tinted).

If you'll be using another yellow, try Aura's yellow foundation as a primer.

I had the same problem last week purple room and had to cover it with a yellow. One coat with blocker hideing primer tinted,And still two coats of finish. As Paragonva said is the only way.I always tint my primer one coat of primer and one coat of paint saves on paint.....

I would think you could make it in two coats with aura. I think aura has less voc's than harmony too.
