Primer Sand is meant to be mixed with an approved paint primer and then rolled onto your wall. This creates tooth that aids American Clay plasters in properly adhering to the surface.

Primer Sand is a replacement for our Sanded Primer Elite (discontinued in 2011), however our Sanded Primer Elite (a paint primer pre-mixed with sand) is still appropriate to use as well. The mixture of Primer Sand (a unique blend of light weight sand aggregates) and an isolating paint primer will produce a textured sand primer that has a consistency similar to our Sanded Primer Elite. Sanded Primer Elite is still available for purchase at some of our retail locations in the event that you would prefer to use that option instead.


The following is a list of primers that have worked in our test applications. Check the suitability of a primer specific to your application requirements prior to the start of your project.
