Red dilemma

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have a problem when using certain colours 

what colour primer should I use when painting RED 

a few year back I did a red arrow and used white primer and the red overcoat came out more of a orange colour.

now I’m doing a Jet Provost of the red pelicans display team and this time I used grey primer and the RED looks way to dark 

any input on what I’m doing wrong is greatly appreciated.

many thanks

An old piece of advice was to use yellow undercoat for a richer red.  However if the red is coming out orange on the white primer, I'd also try a different red.  Perhaps a scarlet rather than a vermilion?
