Hello KrumHunter357 and welcome to the Community. That one wall that is 12x13 is 156 square feet. A one gallon can covers 200-400 square feet that’s one coat. I suggest you buy a Gallon of gray tinted primer Gripper Gray by Glidden.


When you want to use vivid paint colors, choose quick-drying Gripper grey latex primer and sealer. On top of all of its other benefits, Gripper grey primer saves you time and money by limiting the number of coats needed to make vibrant paint colors pop

  • Fills surface imperfections like hairline cracks for a uniform painting surface
  • Adheres to and covers surfaces thoroughly
  • Seals off stains that may otherwise show
  • Provides a mildew-resistant layer
  • Makes paint colors look more accurate
  • Resists cracking and peeling when used over wood

You can apply Gripper grey primer to a wide range of painted or unpainted surfaces, including tile, wallpaper, paneling, plastic and wood laminates, drywall and plaster.


Once your primer is dry then  apply BEHR Premium Plus 1-Gal. Eggsshell

I would point out that the RustOleum spray cans of flourescent paint colors  will also illuminate under black light.
