Painting over bright, multicolored mural-- Tips on a good primer?

Here's a question that comes to us in the comments section of a short article on the Apron blog about Martha Stewart metalic project paint.

I am preparing to paint over a bright mural of a jungle theme (many different colors). The color replacing it is “BEHR Premium Plus Ultra ‘Home Decorators Collection Sovereign Interior/Exterior’ Paint”. Any pointers on a good primer to make sure pre-existing colors won’t bleen through, or that I won’t have to recoat ‘umpteen’ different times?

 

Wow. A bright, multicolored mural might be a challenge to cover. I can see why she'd want to know what primer to use. 

 

Any recommendations for Mysti?

In this case - using an oil based primer is the best solution.  Without knowing exactly what type of paints were used to paint the mural...it is better to be safe than sorry.

Keep in mind that these products are specifiic for interior/exterior and clean up with paint thinner.
