    Any preferences? Why would I choose one over another? Thanks!

    White for lighter/brighter colors, gray for slightly darker colors.

    Grey is better at covering over other colors. If you want to make something that's black or navy blue into a bright color, it's probably best to use grey for a coating or two, then switch to white---because pure white will take a zillion coats to totally obscure the original color.
