    Hi,

    I've lightly sanded over oil-based gloss on door/window/skirting (just taking most of sheen off). Wondering which is a better water-based undercoat/primer to put on next before I apply water based satin.

    I bought Leyland trade acrylic primer undercoat from screwfix which I haven't used. Ive realised it states its for bare timber, although from reviews it seems its general purpose.

    Would I be better off with Zinsser Bullseye 123 instead ?

    My sanding wasn't brilliant (rubbish) and Zinsser seems to stick to anything (no sanding required apparently!?)

    The primer/undercoat will be fine

    Although the primer/undercoat you have will probably be ok, it may not adhere well enough to take any bumps and knocks. If you think this is likely, I would go with the Zinsser or something like Dulux Supergrip, as these are much higher grip primers, provided they are allowed to fully cure before applying your topcoat(s).
