Ralph Lauren presents a sleek, luminous finish that lends a shimmering richness to classic colors and introduces a timeless luxury to walls, trim and architectural elements throughout the home. This acrylic based formula is designed to produce elegant metallic effects. A hammered metal effect is achieved by using the unique Ralph Lauren Specialty Finish Sponge Roller. For a smooth, sleek appearance, Metallic can be sprayed. Because every hand has its own signature, for a consistent appearance throughout the room it is suggested that 1 person apply Metallic to all walls.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for a fun metallic accent wall I used this paint for a fun accent wall in my home. Another paint store I went to said that the only way I could achieve a gold metallic finish was to use a two step process - paint a flat yellow/gold color, and then add a (really expensive) gold glaze on top. I am too lazy for that, plus (as you can see in the picture), the detail I wanted to achieve wasn't going to be as conducive to a multi-layered approach. I found this paint, and it totally did the trick! I did use two coats on top of the white background paint, but didn't use any sort of special sponge or roller. Just used my regular old wall rollers and waited a short period of time for the first coat to dry before the second. Everyone who comes in my home raves about how good it looks. The only drawback is that the metallic finish shows every little imperfection in the wall - but that will be true of any metallic finish. I am just glad it is actually metallic and not flat! Now, if only I could say such good things about the tape I used for the stripes..... August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metallic Stripes This paint still looks good after 7 years... Yes, you can really wow anyone who enters your room of choice with this awesome paint. July 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beautiful I am so glad I found this metallic paint. My daughter had pink and green diamonds on her wall and wanted to change to gold and white. I contemplated doing gold glitter but that technique was too involved so I searched gold paint and came across this. I tried applying directly over the green paint but it did not cover so make sure you apply it over white if you want a true gold. (applying over green gave it a lovely antique look). Anyhow, the gold has a beautiful finish and is a true gold. It is very classy, easy to apply, and is a great look if you want a metallic finish. Lovely!!!! March 4, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If you liked Martha Stewart's Precious Metal Paint line you will be very disappointed in Ralph Lauren Metallic paint. Color palate is very limited. Each one of the 3 different colors we purchased took 3 coats (over a white primer using Ralph Lauren's 9" roller). And honestly, only one of the colors had a slight metallic look. It actually looked more wet than metallic. Don't waste your money. Martha Stewart's Precious Metal paints are great quality and offers 5 times the colors as Ralph Lauren. Unfortunately, HomeDepot discontinued Martha Stewart's Metallic paints for Ralph Lauren. So you will have to shop elsewhere. November 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Color Was looking for a Gold color paint and this was the only color that was actually gold. The paint itself is about half as think as regular paint and after the first coat I could see a lot of roller lines. So I put a second coat on and could still see a lot of roller lines. But after using the sponge roller it took all the lines out after 1 coat. The corners and edges are the hardest thing to do to look right. I thought I could cut in the edges with another wall that was another color but it leaves a different look to the line you just cut in. I didn't use tape because you always get bleed though with a textured wall. I taped all the trim areas and they turned out good. Sponge roller really sucks up the paint you could get some splatter. Just tape all areas and sponge blot the tight corners and some edges then deal with the tape run thru. They say you need 2 hours between coats but it seem to dry much quicker October 8, 2014
