Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lmob I'll Never Use a Homax Product EVER Again
This product sprays on well and as far as I could tell covered what needed to be covered. If the color of the paint matched what is displayed on the packaging I would be giving a good review, HOWEVER, the packaging claims it gives "the look of real porcelain" in WHITE. In my experience, white porcelain looks bright white. This paint is PEACH. Flat out PEACH. I spent hours prepping and cleaning my tub to refinish with this product and very carefully adhered to all the directions on the package. I thought the dark color would lighten as the tub dried, but no deal. It looked AWFUL. If the color had been just off-white I would have just painted the surround as well and been done, but it was such a dark peach color that there was no way I was painting my entire shower and tub that color! When I emailed customer service this was their response:
"Thank you for contacting The Homax Group.
Our Tough As Tile Tub Refinishing Kit in white is not a bright white like the porcelain white. When compared to the bright white, our paint can appear off white or some say it has a pink, peach or beige tint to it. Most people will also refinish the surrounding walls of the tub to give it a solid color."
If your product is NOT white, then don't claim that it is. I wasted 4 hours on this awful product, and now have to spend the money again on something else, like Rustoleum Tub and Tile, to cover it up. Ugh.
In the picture you can see how bright the edge of the tub is, which has not been painted. The inside of the tub is PEACH.

I used this product on both my tub and my sink . I followed the directions exactly and even let it cure for an extra day . Within two days of letting it cure it was getting little dings in it just from going in and out of the shower.. The old spots in the tub are already showing through . I would only recommend this product to use in a bathroom that is for show only and the tub never gets used. I should have saved my money and all that time

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MAXX Don't waste your money
This product should not be on the market - what a waste of money. It won't even spray out of the can
correctly. Direction say "brush drip spots" it's all drip spots. every 2-3 seconds spots spray out. The only way to apply this product is to have the spray can in one hand and a brush in the other hand.Also, a 2 can kit is about half enough product to cover a standard 3'x3'x'6' shower. After "hours of prep" and a total failed product, I will be replacing the shower with a new inset. I can't believe I wasted hours of prep and
money (cost of the kit, air mask, drop cloths, painter's tape and paint brush) for this end result.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LinzyK DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME
Two weekends ago I spent the entire weekend preparing for and then using "Tough as Tile One Part Epoxy Aerosol - White". I followed the instructions to the letter and even regulated the temperature of the room to make sure it was just right as listed in the instructions. My sink is already half peeled off. This means I spent $46.57 at Home Depot and an entire weekend for nothing. Now I have to purchase a new sink and hook-up all the parts...again. I am really upset. I work and have a 5month old and the last thing I want is to WAIST an entire weekend and babysitting time to have a failed product.
I am hoping for a refund.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LW1172 Horrible Product!!
My experience is pretty much the same as all the other negative ones here. I followed the instructions exactly and had numerous problems with this product. First, when spraying it continuously left drip marks and using a paint brush didn't smooth them out. It didn't not cover a white tub in two coats. However, the worse problem was that after it dried, I could simply scrape the product off with my fingernail. The whole process was very time-consuming and a HUGE waste of time. It ruined the bathtub so badly that I had to end up getting a new tub! I don't understand with all these bad reviews how Homax and Home Depot can continue to sell this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harry787 Avoid this product like the plague
Simply put, avoid this product at all costs. Save yourself the time/money/energy and pay a professional. This product does not do as advertised and the 5 star reviews on here were obviously written by the manufacturer.
I bought two of these kits trying to refinish my tub. Both times, I followed the instructions perfectly and it still made a mess and ruined my tub. Needless to say, when you call the manufacturer or read the instructions again...you are told to "buy another kit, sand and start over". Just a way to keep you buying more and more until you say NO MORE.
After two tries, I had to pay someone to come out and fix the problem. Not everyone was willing to do it, but they all said the same thing..."we see this a lot and really wish this product would be removed from the shelves".
It cost me $850 to have a professional come out and fix the problem. Had we hired them to begin with, the cost to refinish the tub would have been a fraction of the cost and saved me the time and headache.
In summary, avoid this product and save your money! The finish is awful and will not do as advertised. Wish I had read some of these reviews before trying it and will definitely not be buying anything from Homax again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KevinJ Terrible product
In short, I followed the directions exactly as the manufacturer recommended, even shaking the can more than the recommended amount of time and letting it cure for twice as long as recommended and within a week the paint is already peeling off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sunny poor (expensive) product
Followed cleaning procedures. Have thus far puchased 4 spray kits to finish beige tub and blue surround. After at least 5 coats on the blue tile, the blue shadows remain. Called customer service and Jeff was very nice and helpful. Said i did nothing wrong but had few suggestions: put a space heater in room to accellerate drying and hardening; wet sand 400grit tub to get rid of overspray (didnt work)before spraying again and wipe with alcohol; buy another kit. Did all that but am not hopeful that recoating will not help. Not to mention the expense. I could have bought a tub surround cheaper not to mention the time and mess.
