Tried the 2X semi-gloss ultra cover a few months ago and got awesome results. Recently purchased more cans as different times for another project and wound up with terrible inconsistent results. Most of the project had the dry paint problem and left the painted surface gritty! Suspect Rustoleum has made a change in the manufacturing of the paint/can/nozzle and has left the customer with a paint that can't be depended on.

I have been using the painters touch double coverage series since it appeared years ago. Recently I have found it to be so inconsistent in texture, coverage, pattern, and sometimes just gum up and fizz right out of the spray can. I went through about a dozen cans from home depot in both white and black and none of them worked right. I brought some older cans from home and they worked like they should. Something is very wrong and until the company explains what happened I am switching to another brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by katydids ALL THE 2X'S ARE NOT THE SAME
EVEN IF I HAD READ THE REVIEWS BEFOREHAND I WOULD NOT HAVE BELIEVED THEM - I HAD MY MANTLE PAINTED WITH 2X AND IT IS PERFECT - AGAIN, SAME PERSON SPRAYED MY TWO RATTAN ROCKER SWIVEL CHAIRS - AGAIN - PERFECT - JUST LAST WEEK - THIS WEEK HE PAINTED A PREVIOUSLY PAINTED PIECE (NEVER ANY PREVIOUS PROBLEMS) BUT THIS IS A DISASTER - THE PAINT ACTUALLY WIPES OFF AS SAND - THE COLOR IS WRONG ON THE FRONT - THE SIDES AND TOP ARE OKAY (NOT GREAT) BUT THE FRONT DOOR IS JUST TERRIBLE - I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO - IT HAS TO BR DONE OUTSIDE AND I'VE ALREADY HAD IT PUT BACK. THERE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS PAINT AND I SUGGEST RUSTOLEUM FIND A SOLUTION BEFORE SELLING ANY MORE.

Every summer, I use rust oleum for my bbq , chairs etc
today I went and bought this spray in white to paint some metal lights I have
the paint came out like a popcorn ceiling :(
I tried far a way close, outside, inside, nothing
The paint came like a powder
I went to the store where i bought it and exchange it
I was going to buy another brand, but I gave u guys a second chance
And the paint was fine, so I think its just some cans that comes with paint like dust

Too far away and you have dry spray and over spray. Which is paint that dried in the air and landed on the wet paint. Leaving a rough texture and dull finish.
Spray closer eliminates that. But then you have runs and cracking. The cracking comes from drying paint entraping solvent. The solvent then brakes thru the paint in cracks. Looks like broken glass or antique aged finished. The runs don't dry well inside so sanding them tends to tear ip the paint.
The can recomends a dry time of 4 hours before sanding. That is of course if you don't put it on too thick. Even i 80-90 degree F it takes that long before wet sanding. Try to sand out all the bad that the pait coat gave you and it tears up, including any paint layers under.
By taking so long to even dry to the touch it leaves more chance of debree getting in the paint.
You need to allow a good amount of time between coatcoats depending how thick you spray. Even after 15 minutes and dry to the touch the additional coat can cause cracking. Because it really takes 4 or 5 hours for the paint below to dry. Undried paint has thinners that the next coat traps, leading to several layers of cracked paint.
Some of their paints don't work well with the existing paint. Before you say it's me, I said some. In another words one primer will instantly turn a painted surface into a gue mess. But another of the same brand Rustoliam does not.
Perhaps on pouris serfaces that absorb the paint may work better. My experience is on steel.
My guess is the solvent mix is for such a slow dry, too much solvent, and spray nossel with too much volume for the paint mix.
The worst is Rustoliam dominates all the stores. Waiting for alternatives. No stars.

I bought 4 cans, 2 sage green which is glossy and 2 white simi gloss. The green finish was great... The first white came out real gritty so i tried the second can and it did the same thing... Conditions were inside no wind, around 70 and 25% humidity... Disappointing will take back and try someting else!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bcasey1981 Don't listen to all the 1 star reviews. Amazing product!
So, I'm not sure if most of these people either don't know howntonpaintnor just have bad luck but, my wife (who has never painted in her life) used it and our stuff came out absolutely fantastic. She had a blast painting. And as for consistent product, we've gotten it from 3 different stores in the Seattle area and all 6 cans work great and the color matches perfectly.

Like many other users I was using this for a furniture project and the first can was beautiful! Then can number two was like powder. I saw the vendor response was I must be spraying too far away but I think as I was 6 inches away at times and even just sprayed my concrete and I now have a ziploc of powder I was able to scoop into a bag because this was junk. I think that Rust-oleum needs to have a better look at their product. Its too bad because I had to resand and refinish this project. Didn't save any time. Wish I had read all these reviews before I started.
