Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Glidden Gel-Flow, the new generation paint.
I have used all kinds of paints. But this is the first time I used this Gel-Flow paint.
Glidden says it is Gel-Flow technology.
When I opened the can I was a bit skeptical, since paint was so heavy and looked like jello.
Anyway, I purchased a new 2" Wooster Pro White China Bristle Angle Sash Brush from Home Depot and gave it a try.I could not believe my eyes! It was amazingly easy to paint. No streaks and drips. So I kicked away my drop cloth since nothing was falling down.
A few minutes after painting, it looks like the paint expands and fills all the pores and streaks on the surface and they disappear. I believe that is the new technology behind "No streaks". When it was dry, it looked and felt like high gloss baked enamel! It was very smooth and glossy.
I really do appreciate the new technology.
I painted the exterior of my front and back doors, and trims. I still have about 20 % left.
My skepticism about the heavy thick jello paint has vanished. I am for it,
I think all the paints should be made like this from now onwards--no streaks, no drips and no drop cloths.

This paint is doing exactly what the manufacturer is promising it will do, absolutely beautiful results with this paint. This is the first paint I've ever used of this brand and I was quite impressed with the quality. This paint is very thick, actually at first I was a bit afraid to use it as it was, I thought of diluting it a little.
After it dries the finish of this paint is impeccable, no brush marks, no drips. The only con about this paint is that it takes too long to dry, but that is expected because it's an oil based paint.
The color is a very nice neutral shade that can match any decor.
I was very pleased with the quality of this paint and highly recommend to anyone, it's a great paint that will give beautiful and long lasting results on your projects.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CapnDed Worst Paint ever invented.
This is the absolute worst paint I have ever used. It leaves brush-marks, doesn't cover, and ruins the brush. It looks like it will take 3 coats to cover. I will never use another Glidden product again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doc766 Good trim paint for keeping things neat!
I found the Glidden Trim and Door 1-Qt. Linen Canvas Interior/Exterior Gloss Oil Paint a quality paint for keeping things looking neat in my second bath. I used the paint with a fine-bristle brush to cover the old, brown color of trim of the door and cabinet trim with a matching white gloss for the rest of my bath trim. I needed to use a second coat to completely cover the dark-brown color and to match the smoothness of the white trim--but, that was expected and the transition went smoothly with highly satisfying results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terri My Steel Door looks new again
I have a steel basement door that was showing wear due to weather and age that I decided to paint. Unfortunately the weather has not been cooperative lately but I was able to paint the interior side of the steel door. I have to say that the finished product from the inside looks great. The paint was easy to apply with little effort in clean up. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Parker Looks good!
This was only my second experience with this brand of oil based paint. I did a little better this time on a 6 paneled door. The brush marks didn't really show up with this lighter color. I like that it's thick and covers well. Just be careful with clean-up or buy cheaper brushes that you won't mind throwing away.

This paint covered a oven hood. It looked better than new. It was smooth and clean looking. Can be washed. Improved my kitchen.
