- Putty is a Water-based solution.
- Mostly used in interior based surfaces.

Never use primers before whitewashing. This is mainly because primers are used as a preparatory coating, not staining. Primers should be used only when the surface is dried. Primers can be used on walls as well. There are different kind of primers, like oil-based primers and so on.
Apart from primers, Base Coat is used during whitewashing. Base Coat is somewhat the first layer of paint applied as the base. The Base Coat type can vary based on textures/materials. Base Coat can be water-based or solvent-based. During whitewashing, the usage of base coat and primers can smoothen the textures of walls.
