Default Low Odor Primer for Stone?

Hey guys. Usually I use BM oil Fresh Start for any priming I need done.On this project,I'm not sure what to use.

There are two concerns. The client is worried about the oil fumes. I'm concerned about adhesion. The fireplace surround MAY have been painted before. The client believes it was, I'm not so sure. If it is faux,its the best faux I've ever seen. In any case ,the surface was cold to the touch like stone.

What do you guys think?

Looks like stone from here.
Did you knock on it? Tap it with a hammer?

Oh,I know it's stone. It was cold and I tapped on it and this house is in a historic district. This house is probably 200yrs old. The difference is the new homeowners for some reason think it is already painted. I saw and felt no evidence of that.
She doesn't want the dog breathing the oil fumes.

For adhesion concerns I almost always turn to BIN. It has a powerful odor for sure, but as has been mentioned before, the smell dissipates faster than oil based primers.

Anytime. By the way, that dog looks like he could use some perking up. Some shellac fumes might be just what he's needing.

Holy Wackos, Batgirl!

Sorry, I've caught myself and won't go any further about the "dog" breathing "fumes".

Maybe just a little...

I'm using BIN on a problem bathroom ceiling later this week. This reminds me to check the attic and crawl space for any mice, spiders, etc. that may be negatively affected by man's unnecessary obsession with home improvement.

If you employ a large enough fan to move air, the homeowner shouldn't have a problem with the oil.

BTW, I look exactly like that dog when I come home from a particularly long day of work, and all there is in the fridge is one Stella, a plastic container of Keenwa, a jar of pickles, a bundle of cold celery I don't ever intend to eat, a berating apple, a bag of grated cheddar cheese begging to give me a heart attack, and a door filled with condiments, waiting to provide a cruch for this lame cacophony of food items.

xim, or the new SW bonding primer (both are water based) shouldn't have any problem adhering to that for a low(er) odor solution. I'd want BIN as a first choice, but the alternates aren't bad options.

It does look much better already. My condolences to the bulldog and those who loved him/her.

Hank the dog is fine, he slept through it. I however,have a splitting headache.


If you look in the lower left corner of the picture, you'll see the sample board. We're going with Carrera marble. The only thing that's going to look weird is the floor tiles right in front are staying.


And, yes I put blue tape on the wall, because I forgot the purple tape. Fingers crossed.

Just paint it black ( or gray)? And tell em it'll likely need maintenance down the road for the reasons you stated above and that touch ups can easily be made by them if they so choose..
