Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jodu Spatters no matter what. Do not buy!!!!
I have worked with spray paint professionally for 20 years and I was not able to achieve good results with this product. I used it under perfect conditions, sprayed at the correct distance but the paint still went on very gritty. Do not buy!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jhast00795 Should be labeled texture paint
Painted a small ceramic tiled wall in the bathroom. Gave a nice textured finish, almost like sandpaper. Unfortunately, that's not the look I was going for. Sanded it smooth and hit it with a couple of cans of Krylon and looks like a factory finish. Maybe OK for an iron railing, but definitely not for flat surfaces.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by p0d0 Poor quality control.
I purchased a can about two years ago and it worked perfectly for what I needed it for. I used that same can today without any issues except that I ran out. No problem, HD is a mile away. Purchase a new can and it is absolutely useless. Even with tons of shaking the paint comes out spotty, sometimes already dried in specks and cracks form on the surface easily. It looked like spray-on bedliner. This goes both for a new surface and painting over the paint from the old can. Complete garbage compared to the old stuff. I'm going to have to re-sand my entire project. Hopefully it was just one defective can but I'm not going to buy another one to find out!
p.s. Images submitted show the issues on a smooth surface wet sanded with 400 grit sandpaper. All bumps are from the paint.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bhcdiy Poor quality paint-
I have used this type of paint (2X coverage) before and had beautiful results. I shook the can very well as usual.The paint splattered as it came out, so I shook it many more times,ok it worked better, but the coverage was a very poor quality. It did not look like semi gloss in many areas. After it was dry I ran my hand over it and it felt gritty, like overspray!! Good thing this is on vinyl gates in our backyard and they don't need to be showroom perfect. Be very careful before you apply to something -- I suggest you spray it on an old object first--save yourself a lot of grief!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Megan WARNING: Try something else!!!
(First can) I should have stopped using this as soon as it sprayed rough splatter all over my shutters. Unfortunately, I didn't notice until the next day when I checked to see if the paint was dry. (Second and Third can) Sprayed dark grey before turning white. Had to let it dry and sand it off before spraying again. Coverage is terrible and 2 days later the paint is still tacky. Wish I had read all the reviews before purchasing a total of 6 cans! I had to finish my project and I didn't want to change the product in fear an other brand would have a different color white. I purchased the paint for bathroom shutters, that hang side-by-side, I had to keep the color consistent.

I bought the 2x Gloss and it is the worst spray paint I have ever used.
It sputters going on. No matter how you apply it the surface is rough and gritty when you get done.
Forget about seeing any gloss.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Worst Rustoleum Product of all time
I have used Rustoleum product for many, many years and have been a loyal fan. This 2X spray paint is the worst I have ever used. The paint doesn't come out of the nozzle in a smooth flow and creates rough rather than smooth finishes. I tried several different cans and colors all with the same basic results. There are places with a nice smooth finish but much higher percentage of un-acceptable finish. The only good news is that I was able to sand the rough spots down and was able to re-paint with a different manufacture's product. Do not buy this 2X paint. Other Rustoleum products are okay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike307 Inconsistent product performance
The main issue is product performance consistency. I bought 2 cans of white semi-gloss at the same time. Thoroughly mixed (shake can, per directions) both cans before using each. The first can sprayed paint on perfectly: even coats with nice, smooth "semi-gloss" finish. The second can was a total disaster: spray sputtering a seemingly dry powder leaving a rough, dull, sandpaper looking finish with no gloss that had to be completely stripped and redone. I also tried swapping nozzles with the good can but it did not improve the situation so it appeared to be the paint itself that was the problem.
