Krylon primer
Posted by Road Warrior78 on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 10:25 AM

I have a can of Lotion primer that I've used for multiple projects. I just recently used it and it  seemed runny. I've still got a good 1/4 of it left. What could have caused this?

I have never heard of Lotion primer.  Is it made by Krylon?  Your title and text are a bit confusing.  If your primer seems runny, it could be due to age and maybe you didn't shake the can enough.

Shake it more.   Sounds like you aren't getting all the pigment mixed with the rest of the paint.   I use a hose clamp lined with foam to hold my paint cans and bottles to a reciprocating saw (SAWZALL).   BE CAREFUL IF YOU TRY THIS!  But it will shake paint more than your arm ever can stand.

I did decant a whole spray can of primer a while back.   The can clogged - not the nozzle.   I put it in an old salsa jar.  As it sits it separates into a solvent and the pigments.   So that's probably what has happened in your can.  Shake it more.
