Rated 2 out of 5 by green five cans wasted
just spend days finishing a table with the gloss citrus green and will have to strip it and re-do it again . . . with a different product. With the spot spray tip it was impossible to get good coverage on the table top without lines and streaks - even when maintaining an overlap. The paint does flash off and dries quickly but this it not good on larger projects. Now the issue is we bought Colormaster gloss clear to even out the table top and it lifted and cracked the green basecoat. it may be ok for small projects like a birdhouse but without a fan tip I would not recommend it for anything larger.

Rated 3 out of 5 by George100 This product was better
I paint probable 300 cans a year on traffic signal heads. This product was much easier to apply when it had the
EZ touch 360 tip, paint came out much better than with the new (old) no runs-no drip tip. Please bring back the 360 tip or let me know were I can purchase replacement tips for the 100 or so cans I already have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveInTheTropics Great Product!!!
I use this (cherry red GLOSS #52101) paint+primer on aluminum and fiberglass and it is GREAT! Color is great and product handling during application is great. Stays on perfectly... going on two years; still looks great. I continue to use it for various projects and I have had zero problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dc123 Recoat times don't mean anything
I spray paint for a living and am very aware of how paint receipt times matter very much, as well as all the other factors like cleaning your surface after sanding, etc.
I can basically never spray a second coat of this paint without peeling. It blows my mind how they have formulated this paint to make it so delicate to use.
There goes 2 days work while I wait for everything to dry, then sand off all the krylon so I can use another paint and wait for that to dry.

I bought 3 cans. All were very poor. One can the color never came out, only clear spray. When i did get color out it dried gray and not black. Please bring back the paint without the primer in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andres005 Perfect Finish, No Sanding Required
I used the gloss white to spray paint metal skateboard trucks. I sprayed about 5-6 coats because the drying time is so fast. After they dried, the finish looked like they were powder coated...way better than I expected. I know that I did not do a great job prepping the surface and the coverage was excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Horrible Product
I do a ton of painting projects, but decided to use this product because the color was exactly what I was looking for. Any other spray paint would have taken only a couple of coats of paint. This product has taken at least 5 coats so far and the color is still uneven! I've only completed half the project, and am thinking I will go ahead and use a different product to finish. The cost of this item, definitely doesn't make the project economical with the amount of paint you will need to complete. Very disappointed and will never purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by firecat Outstanding, glass-like finish
This is an outstanding spray paint in a can that can allow you to achieve a very controllable spray grade finish that is as good as anything you can achieve with 'spray' capability including rivaling professional spray guns. I achieve 'glass-like', factory finish with this paint which is why I want to share some insights. There has been some critical reviews of this paint that I believe are the result of the fact that the best method of application for this spray paint is a little different from Rustoleum spray paints for example (other products people are first used to). My experience with the Rustoleum products is that they go on heavier, and as an oil/enamel take a typically, very long time to dry (my experience is overnight). The heavier coat per application makes it harder to control the 'layered' spraying that achieves even coverage and glass like finishes. The ColorMaster goes on very thin but dries almost immediately allowing many subsequent coats in rapid succession (5, 10 minutes between the coats). If you try to achieve complete coverage too quickly it may run. Furthermore (my experience is with Satin white), the first or second coats hardly begin to turn the sprayed object to 'color'. Stay patient because you will see why this is an asset and not a hindrance when you get to the final finish! Recognize that after several applications, easily achieved with the fast drying nature of this paint, the color buildup will occur. Because the paint allows you to apply thin layers, you can achieve an even, very smooth finish and it is dry to touch in an hour! When objects are sprayed dust or dirt circulating in the air will stick to the surface between coats (unless you are lucky enough to spray in a 'clean room'). Also, you may think you prepared the surface for paint, but when the paint is applied certain imperfections that were not visible may now show up - this is just a fact of prepping and painting. With a Rustoleum product you have to wait until the next day to lightly sand it out! With the Colormaster, I can lightly wipe off any dust that sticks between coats because it dries to touch (this may be a 20 minute between coat application). I can also sand with say 400 or 600 grit between coats the same day (in an hour or so). Several coats of ColorMaster, say 4-5, a light sanding of 600 grit even with an orbital, and 2-3 final coats and I have glass - even on wood! Again, I cant do this with the Rustoleum - because its not even dry yet. Bottom line: the fast drying capability of Colormaster not only is an asset if you want to handle the work piece the same day - this fast dry capability allows you to tend to the surface between coats within minutes. Overall, I find the colors brighter and more appealing, and ultimate surface smoother, than any other brand. Note: always shake the can thoroughly and start the spraying on cardboard or a test object to make sure the paint is spraying smooth and not spitting. I find that the Colormaster has a short shelf life and if it sits too long 3-6 months an occasional can will 'spit' (i.e.; not spray smoothly).
