Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UTBadger Works Great and it's cheap
I was doing remodeling job where we were walling over some windows on the inside, but you would still see the windows on the outside of the house. So I wanted them to just appear frosted from the outside so that you couldn't see there was a wall behind them.
Application is easy as long as you keep a few things in mind. It doesn't spray as thick and concentrated as spray paint. It comes out in a lighter mist and produces a big cloud. So you need to tape well to prevent it from getting on what you don't want. Make sure you have very good ventilation and I would suggest wearing a mask. Lastly, you will need many coats - it took me 6.
As it goes on and is wet it looks clear, but it dries frosted.
I'm very happy with the results. It ended up using 1 can and 1 coat from a second can. If I would have used the film/linings for the windows it would have cost me at least $80.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DickB Worked Well on Basement WIndows
I had been plagued with ravens seeing their reflection in my basement windows and other methods had not worked (aluminum foil strips and reflective strips for birds). So, I used this spray paint on the windows after taping off the window frames. It worked great! No more ravens tearing out the screens! Success! I highly recommend this spray paint!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PhoenixBird Fabulous! Provides the privacy I needed!
Cheap, easy to use and provides the privacy I needed for a huge sliding glass door. No longer do I have to worry about prying eyes from BAH neighbors and those walking by peering over the privacy fence. It still allows enough light in (with my vertical blinds open). The only recommendation I have is to spray evenly and let it dry before reapplying. It's a bit difficult (at first) to figure out how opaque this will be unless you let it dry completely between coats.
I left about 20% of the upper windows unfrosted so I can the sky (rain, snow, etc). Also, the smell is horrible/strong but just leave the house for a couple of hours with a fan ventilating and it'll be ok.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SomeDude Great product for the price
Have a front door with a large window that limits privacy. Was concerned that at night it's easy to see into our home. I looked online at options and found I could purchase a kit for around $35 or try the spray for around $4. I thought the spray option would be a good first choice and if it didn't come out well then go for plan B. I was very happy with the results.
Things you should be aware of when using this product: It definitely takes more then one coat to achieve a consistent look. I was able to do mine with only two coats. You do not want to use this product without having a breathing mask or respirator of some kind. If using this product in doors make sure windows are open and there is very good ventilation. After I used the product on the inside of my entry door the entire house smelled very strongly (odor smells like nail polish) for well over two hours even with windows open to help vent the fumes.
Overall this was a very easy product to use and gave me the exact result I was hoping for. It's fast, easy, and cheap. I would highly recommend this product

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mattie180 Application uneven, spray can causes droplets while applying
Very disappointed with this product. I have a 3 panel bay window that I am frosting. For 2 of the panels, I used a competitor brand (because it was in stock at a HD competitor). Yesterday I was at Home Depot for other errands and needed more frosting, so I picked up the Rustoleum brand thinking it would be a similar application. Not even close! While I was spraying the panel, the can application was awful and caused droplets below the level I was spraying. I now have a window that looks splattered and terrible. Because I was going to have to remove and redo I decided to try a different can in case it was a fluke. It was not. My "brushstrokes" were horizontal, about 14" long - the other brand was SO MUCH easier to use. It was not uneven at all. Now I need to start from scratch for the 3rd panel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan Works perfectly
I've used this in two different houses. If I have a window that looks right at a house next door, I write it off and frost it over.
You need to clean the glass first, and then use it like any other spray paint. Do very thin layers, and figure on a few coats. It's not hard to do.
I've never had a problem with it coming off. I don't know why everyone is scratching at their windows so much to begin with. It sounds like the problem is really with them...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GermantownMDMom Great Product and it's Easy to use!
We decided to use Rustoleum's Frosted Glass spray paint for our oval window in one of our bathrooms. We taped up the edges and the trim around the window, cleaned the window thoroughly with window cleaner, let it dry for 5 minutes and then started frosting. It was so easy! The spray paint smells terrible so make sure you have a nose mask and good ventilation. We did 4 light coats on our window and allowed each coat to dry for 10 minutes before applying the next coat. The window looks absolutely perfect. Tomorrow we're going to do a really cool frosted design on our sliding glass doors for privacy from our neighbors. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RENOVATIONMAN EXCELLENT PRODUCT
I used this spray on the inside of a double bathroom window. I cleaned the windows 1st with water and vinegar (1oz Vin to 1gal H2o), let them dry after wiping them down with a lint-free towel. Spray from Left to Right using light coats each time and let it dry between each coat for 20 to 30 minutes. Goes on some what clear and dries frosted. "Do Not" spray on heavy! I applied 6 coats on a double window that was approximately 24" x 30" total size and had about a 1/3 of a can left over. "Make Sure You Have Adequate Ventilation !!! " as the fumes are quite strong. Consider using a dust mask. "This is an Excellent Product" if applied correctly.
