Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bre1 Horrible Product
Tried to use this product over black matte painted 11' X 14" picture frames to add a gloss finish. The paint dries within a few seconds on each part of the frame. Unfortunately, while spraying the last section of the frame, residual spray will spread to the 1st section painted with a resulting foggy appearance. BEWARE: The final dried product (30 minute after application) will be different than first observed. Using a minimal spray is inadequate. You cannot sand (color changes to a charcoal gray color). Cannot reapply without sanding even if you wait a week without resultant rippling/bubbling with minimal spray. Have destroyed 3 picture frames. NEVER PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!

I have purchased and used 1 can of triple thick glaze. The reason that I only purchased 1 can was that I have tried many products that did not turn out to be appropriate for my use. Since I am a professional artist and use a reasonable quantity of my staples, I will be purchasing this product in volume.
My use and experiment was coating primed acrylic painted wood fish sculpture both without finish and with previous finishes. The results were most impressive given that I fully expected reactions with the previous finishes and the weather was hot and humid( Fl in Summer). I only had 1 reaction and no bubbles, snow, or milk in the finish with heavy application. Immediately after the application I did place them in my a/c studio to dry. Great product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HokieFan Abysmal Product. Ruins painted projects. Don't buy!
I was building a painted project for my college kids and thought this would be a great topcoat. Sadly, it did not dry clear but left a cloudy, blotchy, milky appearance over the brightly colored paint underneath. This is not the dry spray discussed in other reviews here but a milky appearance over the top of the paint. Ventilation was fine (in my shop where other projects have been painted); temps were fine (75 degrees), and humidity within range (58%). Gotta admit, I'm pretty angry about all the work I've done that now needs to be redone. Wish I'd never used this stuff.
Do yourself a favor, never, never, NEVER buy this stuff. It's pure junk.

I wanted to have a hard durable surface for the kitchen counter that I painted with 123 primer, flat copper acrylic paint, then rustoleums copper metallic and craft paint to give a vertigris look. It looked great and I called the company to get their best recommendation for a hard top coat. I asked all the questions I thought were relevant, including distance from surface, re-coat time, how long till cured, where I lived temp wise and what I was doing, my kitchen counters.
Well today I did 3 light coats, waiting 10 min in between and it showed a whitish dull haze. I called them back and was told that it would dry clear, just the solvents drying.
3 hrs later still had a dull finish and varied from clear to dull in areas.
Called back got a guy who told me that the spray was drying before hitting the surface because it was too hot.
Told me now I had to wipe off, sand and re-coat once I got the temp down to 75. Laid all the blame on me for the product failure.
Pretty angry since I didn't have the time to mess with this further and now I have to do so much work to fix the problem this awful product caused.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Karen white dust and cloudy finish
I have spray painted a thousand things - wood, metal plastic, with colored paint and clear glazed and never had a problem. I painted in the garage, in the shade, and when it was 70 degrees and low humidity. This left white dust and a splotchy cloudy finish. terrible product. My project is ruined and now I have to start over. Waste of money and time.

Nice and thick, But will act as a solvent and make any paint under the glaze thin out run.
Regular clear coat won't remove the base paint like this will.

I was painting a metal chair it was primed and base coated, when I sprayed the stuff on a white dust residue built around where it didn't spray

It does take more than one coat. It soaks into wood that has been painted 3X, so plan on extra. It is not expensive, so that helps. I also painted clay pots. I only applied one coat to the pot itself and it wasn't thick and glossy, but with more coats it might have been. I wanted to protect the paint. I painted the wooden table tops and clay with acrylic house paint and it sealed it just fine.. The saucers are getting at least 2 coats as I want them waterproof. I sealed the inside of the clay pot with aquarium silicone. It still covers better than less thick glazes. I liked it and bought more to finish the job. I also had some Viva Decor gold on the clay pot and it sealed it fine also.
