Can I use eggshell paint as a primer?
Consequently, can you use paint as a primer?
Paint is not primer. Primer is designed to sand easy, paint is not. You might be able to use it, but some substrates really need a bonding primer.
Subsequently, question is, what do you use eggshell paint for? Sometimes called satin finish, eggshell has slightly more luster than a flat finish, but you won't be left with shiny walls. It also resists stains better than flat and can be wiped with a wet rag. Eggshell finishes are often used in bathrooms, kitchens, kids' rooms, and other high-traffic areas.
In this regard, do you need primer with eggshell paint?
Dulux eggshell is a great paint but you definitely need a primer before applying it. Once your woodwork is ready to paint I would apply two coats of acrylic primer and two coats of eggshell.
