Rated 2 out of 5 by Coochi Left item sticky
Bought this in hopes I could seal in stickers on a phone case project so they couldnt be rubbed or peeled off. So far it did seal the stickers but it also left a sticky texture all over the case which ended up ruining the case due to pocket lint becoming stuck on it.
I read a post online with someone who experienced the same stickiness to which another person replied to them saying that it is due to the spray not being shook enough before applying.
My negative experience could have been due to me not shaking the can enough before applying. Added directions or misuse warnings to the label could prevent similar problems IF the root of the problem is not shaking enough.
If the product is just faulty then well yeah.

Rated 4 out of 5 by koilaf Krylon Crystal Clear works for me.
Used this product on an artistically painted wooden panel this evening. Light coats, every 15 minutes. Very humid but product was still dry to touch quickly, within ten minutes. but it has a slight haze at overlap points. Perhaps the high humidity? Not sure, haven't encountered this before. In past have had a high shine perfectly smooth surface. Will continue to use... perhaps sand down in a week to try again. I assume the problem is the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrianW Great product
I am shocked to find this product with such bad reviews. I have been using this product for a long time and I have had nothing but great results and outstanding finishes with this product. I'm guessing the bad reviews are coming from inexperienced people who don't know how to properly use the product. I don't write many reviews but had to chime in when I seen what others have had to say. Keep rocking this product as it has been amazing for us here.

by MVee Tacky product, why?
I am a professional artist, and have been using the Krylon Crystal Clear coating on my art work for over 40 years. My art is painted beach stones,acrylic paint, very detailed animal paintings, I spend about 30 hours on each piece. These objects are made to be hand-held. I have collectors all over the world. The Crystal Clear spray has always been my final coat on my paintings. The past few years I have noticed that the spray never fully dries, remains a bit tacky to the touch. At first I thought I was doing something wrong, or that the can of spray was defective, but after purchasing many new cans of spray and then reading these reviews, I see that there is something wrong with this product. I am now on the search for a new clear coat for my art work. I am at a loss, this was my go to product for years, and my production is at a stand-still.

Sprayed a very special"international"tractor wagon with this and now you can't even tell what color it should be. It belonged to my son as a child (44 yrs ago) and we sanded off some rust and sprayed it for HIS grandson..I'm sick!!!! NEVER again.. this can't be fixed!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jonna59 Leaves plastic sticky
I bought this because it said it would protect plastic. It was very sticky and attracted dust as well as scraping off the plastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Haley Ruins shiny metal
Used this to spray a metal piece I have and it's just made it sticky and bubbly looking. It's an awful finish and my piece is ruined. I'm so disappointed in this product and I've used many krylon products in the past and been satisfied. This however, was a waste of time and money.
