Typically, many intermediate/prime coats are gray or a dark color which require many passes and perhaps multiple drying cycles to get full coverage of the bright top coat. A simple solution to this predicament is to ensure the intermediate/prime coat is bright white; not off-white, but bright white. You should request your paint specifier to provide a bright white primer or, at the very least, an intermediary color between their standard prime and the final bright color. With a bright white intermediate color, you can often complete the project with only a single passing of the top coat. This will save you in paint, time, and profit.
