Answer: 
We agree with Christine. Rust-Oleum Painters Touch 2X is a clear spray paint so the color underneath is going to show through. The clear color will have a matte finish, but the color of the surface will still show through. Try sanding the surface down to the sheen of your liking and then apply Rust-Oleum Painter Touch 2X Spray Paint on top.

Hello!
Thank you for your question!
Using this matte clear coat will lessen the sheen of the chrome, but it will not take it away completely. Since chrome is so shiny, just simply putting a matte finish on top of it will not lessen the sheen substantially. You may want to try sanding the chrome to knock down the sheen, and then spraying this on top. I would suggest using a medium grit, such as a 60 or Read More

12 oz. Flat Matte Clear General Purpose Spray Paint is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined My Project I used this clear matte spray to put on a dresser and night stand I had sprayed in flat black. The matte spray went on cloudy and spotty. I thought at first it just need to dry, but no it totally looked awful when it dried. I ended up sanding it off and respraying all the pieces. I did return the unused cans. Now I am left not knowing how to put a protective coat on the pieces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inconsistant This is my first attempt at a product review. I'm just so frustrated with this and don't want anyone else to go through this if they don't need to. I should have read these reviews prior to purchase though. My fault. I should mention that I do a lot of painting with aerosol cans, very often. Every now and then I like to mix it up and try different products, which led me to this clear. My experience with this product actually started out pretty good. I sanded and prepped the surfboard I had fixed and painted matte black, as per customer. Gave it a light sand and tack clothed it out. All ready to clear. I sprayed the bottom of the board first, and wow..bang on. This product did exactly what it was supposed to. Perfect. I let it dry..added a couple light coats and let it dry once more. I flipped the board, prepped it and was ready to spray. I only got through about 1/4 go the deck (top) of the board when I ran out. No big deal, I planned to use 2 cans anyhow. I shook up the second can and even tested it out on a piece of cardboard in case of any issues (just common practice for me) and it looked fine. Started spraying and after a few good passes, bam! Milky. A blotchy, milky mess. I kept going, thinking maybe it just needed to dry/cure but the result is the whole deck has a blue/grey tinge to it. Definitely not matte black. I tried, once dry, to sand/remove the clear to no avail. I now have no choice but to strip the board and start over. fantastic. This may seem like a trivial matter in the grand scheme of things, but when you use as much spray as I do, this is concerning. I can tell you I will not be using this product in the future. In fairness to Rust Oleum, you were close..for sure. It's the inconsistency that's gonna keep me far away from this stuff. Too bad, first can worked great. Anyway, that's just my two cents. Cheers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left milky uneven finish I’m so upset I’m shaking. This made an absolute mess out of my project. Left milky uneven finish. Looks like someone dipped it in milk, and left it dry. I wish I had read the other reviews before I used this. A week of sanding, priming, top coating down the drain. Now I can look forward to waiting 2 days for this to dry so that I can start over. I can’t tell you how upset I am.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Clearcoat ever! I try to never change brands when applying a multi coat layered paint job and I wanted to give Rust-Oleum's a try. I love the base coats but their clear coats especially this Matte Clear Coat is horrible. After the first couple of paint jobs it ruined with the ridiculous white fog appearance I went through 3 cans of it on junk plastic parts to figure out what I was doing wrong. I did not want to use another brand for the clear coat. Following the directions, tips found online, no technique produced a consistent paint job that had no white fog appearance. I have used clear coats from virtually every other brand & each has their own technicalities that you need to work with however this product is the exception because I found no way to get consistent results. So beware using this product I did not throw out multiple cans of matte and gloss clear coats because I failed to use them properly, I threw them out because they are horrible clear coats, I only wish I kept the receipt to return them. NO other clear coat in a spray can from any other brand has ever been this ridiculous. Which blows since I love the basecoats & primers from Rust-Oleum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE!!!!!!! This product is HORRIBLE!!!!!! I spent weeks working on a special wedding sign for a friends sister and when I used this product it left a milky white haze!!!!!! I am sooooo upset about this!!!!! I have tried sanding it down some, hoping it would get rid of the haze. It helped some. Hoping when I go over with a different product it will bring some life back to the sign. If not its a start over project UGH!!!! Don't use this product!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dissapointed: Milky White Haze We purchased and installed a very nice flat black mailbox from Home Depot. We were encouraged to protect it with the Rustoleum Flat 2x Matte spray. The final result was a very unprofessional, ugly, white milky finish. Areas on top of the mailbox are peeling off. I called Rustoleum and was told there was possibly too much humidity in the air. According to these reviews, this is happening quite often. I wish I would have read these reviews before ruining our mailbox. I have been told to sand it off with 180 grit sandpaper and to start over. This product should be re- examined. I really regret using this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Regret buying it I ruined a new table by using this product (white haze and paint peeling off). Stay away from it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Really Not That Bad This is a $4.00 quick fix, not a professional, or even an intermediate solution, which will cost about twice as much at least, not dry as quickly, and require more coats and care. The haze comes from humidity and temperature variances and over-application. In some instances I've seen the haze dissipate as the paint cures, and in general, it's best used in a controlled environment and in thin, even coats. I'll admit that it's not the most user friendly product, but it's fast and cheap. Just make sure the surface is clean, that it matches the ambient temperature (to avoid condensation that'll cause haze), that the ambient conditions don't change drastically during curing, and that it's not over-coated. If a white haze does show up, and is not severe, I'd recommend wiping it down with mineral spirits after curing, before panicking and sanding things of, or top coating with a semi-gloss of the same type which'll penetrate somewhat and might mitigate the haze. It doesn't offer much scratch resistance, but I don't see where it says it does. Table tops and other heavily used items require more high end specialized finishes like polyurethane, enamel, epoxy and the like.
