Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent with HVLP sprayers if slightly diluted As another reviewer mentioned the fast drying time for this product requires some skill to brush on correctly. You need to work "wet" and some dilution with water may help. And as with all paint it helps to work systematically rather than tentatively. However, even though the label does not recommend spraying I have found Polycrylic has exceptionally good HVLP spraying characteristics when diluted with about 1 part water with 3.5 to 4 parts paint. Superb leveling, fast drying, very consistent results from piece to piece. What I like best is that the gloss version is very transparent, more so than any other acrylic I have ever used. And it's very abrasion and scratch resistant. Have used a lot of acrylics, and this is my baby. When spraying you definitely need to wear a face mask with an organic filter, the smell is pretty strong. This may be why spraying is not recommended by the manufacturer. But once the paint is dry (which happens fast) there is literally no odor from the work piece such as you get with solvent sprays. September 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great protective finish with a ton of uses super durable and works well with paints and stains. March 23, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Product dries so fast that it laps and leaves work marks on surfaces applied to. I would not purchase this product again. It is a product that can only be sprayed to obtain an even finish November 18, 2011
