Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 BEAUTIFUL!!
I used the bronze metallic paint for the base coat and then faux painted over the base coat with the copper and gold glaze. It is gorgeous! The bathroom is small but the dark ceiling isn't overwhelming at all. It is very interesting and just beautiful. I have to do this somewhere else in my house as well!

I was nervous going into this paint project after reading the reviews. After watching the Home Depot How-To video and following his recommendations, my first paint project went off without a hitch! I used a similar color as a base/primer coat, used the metallic paint, then applied a stencil pattern to give a metallic wallpaper look. Love the outcome!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rollergirl Product works great - roller is the problem
I have used both Ralph Lauren Regent Metallics and MSL Precious Metals with great results. It is meant to be a sheer finish. If you desire more intense coverage; paint a base color on the wall that is similar to the metallic color.
Now onto the real problem ~ the MSL rollers. The new rollers have fibers that are too long and they hold too much paint, this makes it very difficult for the roller to actually roll which would be why line patterns will occur.
Ask the store if they have any of the Ralph Lauren Regent Metallic rollers left; the fibers are a lot less fluffy and will not overload your roller - the results on the wall are like night and day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lovekfam Gave the exact look we wanted
The precious metals line from Martha is just gorgeous. When the paint is used for the purpose of design/decorating as opposed to solely functionality, it is terrific. It is a sheer paint, so sheer paints should not be used specifically for coverage. We were repainting our living room and I wanted a warm pearl metallic tone for the upper portion of our two tone wall. We chose the "bone" color from the line, and got a color matched flat paint to go under as the base coat. It turned out AWESOME! The base coat made all the difference, and when you paint the sheer metallic over it there is no streaking at all, just a smooth pretty metallic sheen just like we wanted! So if you are going for a designed "look" as opposed to a paint specifically for coverage, I definitely recommend this line of paint. Just remember the color matched base coat! Simply beautiful. Thanks Martha!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KF225 Worst Paint Ever!
Wish I could give it no stars. This is the worst paint (Mirrored Glass) I have ever worked with. I have done 5 coats on two flat doors and it is still streaky. I have tried every technique I could think of to get it to not streak, but no luck. I got the best roller and rolled it on thickly going only one direction and it still looks terrible. Every time you pick up your roller it leaves marks. If your roller skips a bit, it leaves marks. Anytime you touch it, it leaves marks. I'm going to have repaint the doors Again - this time with another paint. Very irritating because this paint is not cheap!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LargeUnitAndSac Not worth the money
I just used this paint for a customer bathroom. I used my own 3/4" nap roller pad (not the MSL brand). After the first coat walls looked extremely streaked and thin coverage. Things didn't look much better after the second coat of cut-in even though I put it on thick. For rolling the second coat I tried to pay attention to the directions on the can and apply the paint in smaller sections (approx 2' sq). I did not use a roller pole and instead rolled everything by hand and used LOTS of paint (3x more than first coat). It looks okay, but not great. Overall, it is not a good product and I would not use it again. It is harder to work with and costs more. Also the paint really seemed to clump up a lot in my tray and I was constantly digging chunks off the wall as I went.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nwDIY Question
I bought a sample quart size, then decided to check another color sample online since Office Depot didn't have it in the store. I then came upon the reviews for this product, and am now hesitant to move forward!
My sample square on the wall (12" x 12") looks decent, but my question is, are these bad reviews of the paint done on smooth or textured walls? Our walls are the super-textured types from back in the 80s (reminiscent of Mediterranean-style). I used a cheap nylon brush for application of Eagle Brown (too dark though) and WOW, I was kind of impressed. It's been about 3 days and still looks decent with only one coat, so I am perplexed about most of the reviews given.
I'll be doing 2 accent walls in the bedroom, which has minimal light. I appreciate any feedback about your wall texture and opinions...Thanks!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by fransmom I can't believe this is Martha Stewart
I had grand design scheme made for my reno. Basically made design choices based on this precious metal paint. After taping off stripes and put on my base paint, I could not believe how poorly the saturation of this paint is. No matter how many coats, after letting the previous coat dry, it still left steaks and uneven coverage. What a mess. I wanted this to work so bad. There was evidently an error some where in R&D with this. It looks nothing like the swatch at Home Depot. this is a ridiculous amount of money to pay for such a inferior product. Home Depot states, Prior to the purchase that this was not returnable. I am going to call Martha Stewart customer service like the previous reviewer recommends. I am so disappointed.Think twice before wasting your money. The idea was great but the product needs to be revamped or provided a different application technique other than roller applied.
