Dupli-Color Sandable Red Oxide Primer

Recommended Posts

Is Dupli-Color Sandable Red Oxide Primer more towards red or brown?

I've seen red oxide primers that look very brown and some very red.

More brown than red . It's a great filler primer ("sandable") ; relatively-high-build , which is perfect for filling course scratches . Don't go crazy with applying it --- mask areas which you don't want it on .

Are you sure you aren't referring to the Duplicolor filler primer?  I use Duplicolor Sandable Gray Hot Rod and White primer and it goes on thin.  I need Red Oxide for a project and needed to know if it's more red or more brown.

I use Dupli-Color part number FP-102  ; I've also used 'knockoff' red oxide primers --- all have an adobe tone . They're more brown than red .

Nice felines , by the way ?

Perhaps a painting-order of : (1.) Red Oxide Primer (2.) Clear-Red 'colour' coat (3.) Dull Coat , if that's the finish you desire .
