  • August 30th — In-stock paint can ship immediately, however backorders may be delayed for weeks to months.  We can't say definitively which colors (if any) will be affected until the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line, and can be modified after placing).

    We are receiving regular paint shipments from Rosco, however they're dealing with an industrywide shortage of raw materials that is impacting even the largest paint manufacturers.  Unfortunately this is expected to continue well into 2022, so we recommend planning for extended lead times (and have backup plans) as we do our best to keep our shelves stocked.

Rosco Tough Prime is a unique water-based primer with special properties that allow it to bond to the hard-to-prime materials found in every scene shop.  Available in White and Black, Tough Prime covers many surfaces, including PVC plastics, aluminum and other metals, foams and plastics, muslin, wood, and foamcore.  This quick drying acrylic primer dries to a durable, water-resistant coating which can be painted over with virtually any paint, water or solvent based.

  • CoverageApproximately 300 feet² per gallon, depending on substrate, application tool and film thickness

  • DilutionUse Tough Prime undiluted for most applications.  When applying by brush, it may be necessary to dilute with water to achieve the proper viscosity.
  • Surface PreparationSurfaces should be clean, dry and free from dirt and grease.  If painting over an existing paint finish, remove any loose material with a brush.  When painting over solvent based finishes, or high gloss surfaces, use fine sandpaper or steel wool to give the surface more tooth.  Be sure to remove all sanding dust for best adhesion.
  • ApplicationStir contents before use.  Do not shake.  Apply by brush, roller, or spray gun.  Apply in even, uniform coats, using a good quality brush or roller.  Use overlapping strokes, keeping a wet edge.  Change roller direction often to avoid patterns and streaking.  Do not apply a heavy coat.  To build up a more durable finish, apply several thin coats, allowing each to dry thoroughly between applications.
  • Film Thickness3 mil. Dry Film
  • Average Dry TimeAt 75°F, dries to the touch in 30-45 minutes.  Can be re-coated in 1-2 hours.
