Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Benniman Nice pearl finish
I got a can of the 12 oz. Base Pearls White Pearl paint and a can of red to redo my horseshoe stakes and shoes. I painted horseshoes that were a already white with a fresh coat of this white. After applying several coats, horseshoes looked good. Then applied clear coat as called out on the can. The horseshoe stakes I painted white and then applied the red paint to just the tops. Again, a couple coats of clear coat after paint. See pictures.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Artist's or Designer's Eye Paint, Expensive but Exquisite Finish, Smooth Application
This was my 2nd time experimenting with an Alsa Product. I used a second Alsa Paint to detail the Metal Mailbox. The results were exquisite and unique.
Pearl White as a can of spray paint goes on smoothly and evenly. I refinish many things and use a variety of paints, the application is very even compared to most spray paints.
To save money I used a plain white metal base coat over the formerly green metal box. I painted the top of the box first. The mailbox pictured with Pearl White on top against the plain base coat on the mailbox bottom.
Pearl White is a plain white paint, but it does change shades, like a pearl, in various times of the day. To bring drama to a subtle appearance, I detailed the box with Alsa Killer Chrome: Crown on the box, the Horn, Dog, Horse and other relief.
This was finished as recommended by Alsa with Alsa's Clear Mirra top coat. The shiny top coat brought back the color in the metal Red flag. It popped bright red, before the top coat it was faded red.
Three coats of Pearl went on evenly with a light spray. I could use another can to make matching stones for the bottom of the Mailbox!
A warning, the smell of this paint is toxic. I have some respiratory problems I would never use it anywhere but outside. Plan in advance for wind. You do not want this in your face.
This is a product that is best reviewed with visual images, six pictures.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jaseony Killer Cans are killer
The can is not your average rattle can. It's high tech and overpressurized which was great because I ran out of paint before the pressure diminished without even sputtering like spray paint usually does. I have used Alsa's Killer Cans on many occasions, mainly on guitars I build, and I'm impressed with the consistency of the quality and performance of these products. The colors are rich and vibrant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mophead What's the difference?
After careful prep of my project, utilizing two coats of primer, I applied Killer Cans white base coat, then applied this White Pearl. Frankly, I can't tell the difference between this expensive product and a can of Rust Oleum Gloss White. There was lots of propellent in the Killer Cans spray can, but I did get some spatter and uneven spray. Overall, I was not impressed and will stick with a less expensive product.
