Customer Questions & Answers

kona brown looks like purple when u apply it is that normal?

Asked by: scooter
A Google search for "'kona brown' purple" brought me here as I had the same concerns. After applying it to the project, I can tell you this: Yes, it is purple in the can, no matter how much you mix it. Yes, it applies purple to project. No, it does not stay purple. It starts to turn 'kona brown' within a few minutes. I am not sure why the Rust-oleum rep is "shocked" by this; it is their product and they should know this. In any case, when you see purple, do not get concerned, it is normal.

Why does my dresser stay purple

I have read that Kona brown starts purple and dries dark brown. I painted my dresser and let it dry over night and it is still purple. Why did't the color turn brown? I sanded the dresser and I applied primer. Do I need to add a second coat before it turns dark brown? What should I do here?
Asked by: Eddie
I just opened my can after shaking it up and it's dark stinking purple. Actually found this searching to see if it was normal. Sort of scared to continue because I don't want purple shelves....

Is this a glossy finish? I don't want shine.

Asked by: Jody
Yes Jody, our 32 oz. Ultra Cover Gloss Kona Brown General Purpose Paint has a glossy finish. Once the coating has fully dried, you can apply our Painter's Touch 2x Matte Clear to the surface to create a matte finish:

Will this cover 2 white nightstands? Will i have to sand the furnitur first?

Asked by: Candy
Yes I think it will cover two white nite stands...two coats will be close but I think you could do it. I would recommend a light sanding first. * Note: If the night stands are varnished you will want to remove the varnish first...which can be done with sanding. Good luck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult product to use Opened a new can and stirred paint as usually do with paint (carefully). Then problems began with Rustoleum paint. First coat was just fine since paint stayed fluid and easy to spread,second coat was not as easy, third coat was not good since product was sticky and difficult to spread (dried extremely fast). that was first end table and 1 more to go. 2nd end table the paint dried way to fast and had turned thick and difficult to spread and the more coats I did the more difficult it became to use. By end of the project I have to throw away at least 1/4 of a quart because it is unusable. I followed the instructions gave ample time to dry between coats and this still happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This paint made me so happy! It looked purple! even after I stirred it, so I wasn't sure at first. As it dried (quickly) it turned into a rich, dark glossy brown which was exactly what I needed! Note: follow the directions for application and use a brush (not foam or roller). It makes all the difference in coverage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes...It does dry brown My first impression of the "PURPLE" looking paint was to return it to the store. After reading other's reviews, I reassured myself that it was not mixed by some color blind bozo. I was only using it to paint 30 year old laminated pop up trailer cabinets (sorry pros..I couldn't bring myself to use oil base) so I figured it was worth a try. It probably would have looked a whole lot better had it not better hotter than heck while painting and had I taken the time to sand and patch the aged laminate, but that aside, I am impressed at how it came out. My pop up is now revived enough to spend another 15 years sitting in my yard for my hot night camp outs. And it is indeed a beautiful kona brown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from its not really purple Like all the others I was really disappointed when I opened the can. I re checked the color thinking I had picked up purple, stirred it...still purple so I searched "kona brown" thinking Kona Brown was actually purple...and found this page and very much appreciated reading the reviews. It was like melted chocolate on the floor, looks wonderful. Im not sure how it will hold up but will test it...its only temporary on this floor anyway but I hope it holds up as I love the color it dried as.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good paint I use this paint for my basement wooden staircases. Since this is just for the basement, I do not even bother sanding and priming it. I applied the first coat of paint, waited for a few hours until it completely dried out and then the second coat to smooth everything out and voila.
