12 oz. Stylin Basecoats Jet Black Killer Cans Spray Paint is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.

Overall it's a fairly straightforward spraypaint, however the nozzle has a VERY wide spray compared to your regular Rustoleum, which for me, made me feel like a lot of the product was going to waste because these are meant for large surfaces instead of smaller pieces (or so I assume). I felt that this paint didn't go as far as a can of Rustoleum does, but I attribute that largely to the wide spray and likely being out of practice to some degree with using spraypaint. If you want a shine to this, you WILL need a clear coat, otherwise it's a flat black! This paint is also compatible with Rustoleum, though I did have some issues with it peeling up on some of my pieces when I pulled back painters tape that I'm still not sure the cause of. All in all, a good spraypaint, would be a 5-star but for me the wider nozzle made it a little tougher to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds nice depth to the color over it I used this to paint over some old patio chairs. I used a medium pine green color over this base and it added depth to the color. It has held up very well. I did use a clear finish paint over the chairs for added protection, but the base is what is important and they chairs still look good after two years. I am going to repaint them this year and will use this a a base again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! The picture shows what I did to the back of my cell phone. I sprayed it with Jet Black as a base coat. Then used Bright White Crazer and shelf liner to give the effect. And finally, topcoated it with Mirra Clear. The Killer Cans spray like a dream! Very even coverage with no orangepeel. Lays flat! I love this stuff!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spitter spatter...the not so great killer can Well, killer cans is a good name for it kuz it will kill your paint job. I was honestly expecting a whole lot more from a rather expensive can of glorified paint than what I actually experienced. I am not new to painting and have done many professional paint jobs and sometimes a rattle can is just a good, easy solution for a base coat on small parts. I prepped the part, sanded, primed, sanded, primed, final blocking and then tacked and started to lay base and the tip spattered all over big and little drops...HORRIBLE. I took the tip off and cleaned it, turned the can upside down and sprayed it, cleaned the tip again and waited for the solvent to evaporate while I prepped the part again due to spatter. I kept spraying and it kept spitter spattering all over so I decided to go get another tip and see if that was the other tip I could find is compatible with these cans...again, FAIL. No response from Alsa either. I got my airbrush out and sprayed the part with my good ole trusty expensive paint with a bug on their logo and finally got the results I need for a good base coat no thanks to Alsa. I have had some killer cans before with decent results but for the price and this experience they are a joke. It's best to get out the equipment and spray a totally honest professional paint job and spend the time cleaning all that up than to take the chance on an expensive can only to have it spatter and make you have to prep the part due to a 100% failure on the product...I took no pictures since I had to get the project done for a deadline...hah! killer cans almost killed it???but that's my fault for buying into it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from As a base coat, it is okay This is the base coat for a coating system. That much I was clear on. However, you need a clear coat in between the base coat and top coat (at least for the selection I went with). The can proudly said that it had a 'comfort' spray button, It did not (had the old style). When it came to actually using it, I was initially impressed with the spray pattern (vertical, rather than round), but the can kept sputtering and dribbling, causing raised spots on the surface, even though I used the can in a completely upright position. The paint did cover well, but I barely got 6 square feet of coverage, using the two coats suggested. - See my review of the 'chrome' top coat for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great Used this to paint a mild steel bumper I built. This is a very easy paint to spray and has a jet black color as advertised. Didn't have any problem with drips or runs and the paint seemed to create a thick coat after the 1st application. This product requires being coated with Mirra Clear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not So Killer... For this price, it should be perfect. At least, for a spray can. It is not. I have bought ALSA killer cans before, and I must say, it is really hit or miss at around 50-50. I bought two of these cans, both crapped out on me half way through the can. My painting conditions were ideal, what I was painting was sanded and clean, there was nothing to cause error otherwise. The first can shot great for 2 seconds, then the spray got 'dusty' quick, leaving a gritty finish and then it stopped working all together. The nozzle is terrible, you'll get hand fatigue quickly. The second can started off ok, no dusting, but then started to get a grey look to the coat, so I had to stop. Garbage. For $30 a can, it should shoot better than what you can buy at any dollar store. I did notice when shaking up the can (for at least 6 minutes) the rattle got 'stuck' when I heard it rattle, like this can has been setting for a loooong time. Not good. ALSA makes good paint. Sometimes. If you go this route, be prepared for failure, you are taking that chance. If it goes well, you just got lucky. A better choice if you are looking for car quality jet black paint in a can, is to find some BMW 668 Jet Black in a can sold online. NOT dupli-color, but from a paint shop that just loads cans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High end quality basecoat As other reviewers have stated and as it says on the can, this is a basecoat product. It is designed to the used with the manufacturers other designer topcoat products. Take a look at the Killer Chrome product review for the topcoat review for the conclusion of this project. I primed my piece first and quickly learned that was unnecessary. This product covers very well in a couple of passed with the first coat. I loved the way the vertical nozzle covered the areas effortlessly and evenly. I had a problem with the product dripping as did another reviewer. I originally believed it was down to the fact that my flappy vinyl glove was catching overspray and causing the drip. When I straightened the glove the problem went away. I did have to consistently shake the can to keep it from happening again. The product did eat through my vinyl glove so keep that it mind when selecting protective gear.
