Can the White Gloss Dry Erase Paint also be used as a screen for a PowerPoint presentation just like a regular painted wall can be used?

Answer: 
I don't see why it can't be used that way. It dries looking like a semi-gloss paint (such as a white board). I remember my high school teachers using projectors on white boards. I don't foresee any issues. Just make sure you have enough of the paint to cover the area you plan on using. That way you don't have to make separate trips to the store. Hope this was helpful.

I'm sure it can be but he paint is supposed to have a glossy finish which will give out a light reflection. A regular wall does not have a glossy finish

Answer: 
Darlene - we do not recommend using the dry erase product for projection purposes. The coating does have a gloss on it, and that can make it difficult, depending on the projection light, to read the content on the wall.

Answer: 
The kit includes both parts A & B. The larger can has enough room in it so that you can just add part B into part A without using another mixing pot. You will need a paint paddle to stir both parts together. Do not shake the mixture as this will add air bubbles. I've found that foam rollers and brushes work best. Mix the whole product as you will need multiple coats, waiting about 10 minutes in between. Read More

The kit comes with two cans a "part A" and "part B" which are mixed together before applying. You CAN prime the wall before painting although there is no primer included in the kit.

We painted a wall with the dry erase board paint, and for the most part it comes off with the eraser - but some of the darker colors leave a faint mark - can we use a dry erase board cleaner to get this off?

Answer: 
Although the Rust-Oleum Specialty Dry Erase Kit will dry to a durable finish, you're likely going to need to do a touch up with another coat. You may not need to a do a full coat touch up, but you may have to fix the areas that you drilled. Thanks for reaching out!

Answer: 
Hello HomeImprovementDummy,
As long as the paint has thoroughly cured it shouldn't be an issue. Drilling through the paint is less likely to disturb the paint surface than hammering. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work The product did not work. I sanded the wall section, then mixed A&B (stirred very well). Applied one coat of paint and waited for it to dry. Used dry erase pen, but erasing was a bit hard. Then applied two more coats and now I could not even erase. Same pen works on a whiteboard and erases fine. October 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT PURCHASE! Followed the instructions PERFECTLY. Even put 3 coats instead of the recommended 2. Darker markers will not erase. I did NOT use low odor markers. Have to use a spray and elbow grease to remove the dark 'ghosting'. Called Rustoleum. They told me to put another coat on and that will solve the problem. I told him that the recommendation on the container says two coats for best performance. He insisted another coat will solve it. After reading the reviews that someone did 4 coats and is still having the same problem, I now realize that this is a garbage product and Rustoleum will just not own up to it. The vendor responses to the reviews are ALL the same- yet we have done what they say and the product still will not work. Do NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT. ...and because of this - in the future, I will be hesitant to buy Rustoleum anything again. October 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A little frustrating but end product is what i wanted! I was super excited to try this out but after reading all the other negative product reviews I was a bit scared. I thought that paying extra for the other more expensive brand was not worth it so I decided to give it a try. I taped off the area where I wanted the board to be with blue tape and covered my floor with newspaper just in case of any spills (which turned out to be absolutely necessary). I then calculated how many coats I could apply with a 15-20 minute dry period before the 1 hour was up which is really important because apparently after 1 hour of mixing the paints it can no longer be applied! With that in mind, I mixed the paints and began applying it although to my surprise it was not like regular paint. It was VERY thin and dripped A LOT (so covering up the floor is a must). I also noticed that it appeared to be seeping through the blue tape that I had applied since it was so thin! After doing a few coats there were still some small spots that the paint didn't cover 100% although my hour was up and I couldn't apply any more layers. After I had allowed it to dry for about an hour I peeled off the tape and was horrified to see that the paint had went right through the tape and left a horrible mess on my walls! However, the paint under the tape was still wet as opposed to the paint outside the tape which was dry. I got to work with a sponge and some soapy water and I washed along the lines. The (wet) paint that was under the tape washed off while the (dried) paint outside the tape stayed untouched leaving me with the crisp lines I wanted. So in the end, I was able to clean up most of the paint that had seeped through the tape (only because it was still wet) and was left with a cool looking (and functional) whiteboard! Overall, if you are willing to put the time and effort into it, you can avoid paying for the more expensive (and probably better quality) brand. I love my whiteboard! Tips: Cover everything nearby with tape and newspaper (the paint WILL drip) Make sure you can get as many coats as you need before the 1 hour is up Check under the tape after about an hour of applying your last coat & clean up the spills if need be before they dry! Use an expo cleaner when erasing on the board (it gets a little ugly if you just use an eraser) April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by So so product I've put 4 coats of this prouduct and wouldn't recommend. Idea is great but the carry through isn't well. I've put this proxy on the company's magnetic paint primer and on sanded (220 grit) regular wall. Must say the regular wall was better. Magnetic wall NOT recommended to use this product. After five coats and four days of curing, dry markers would not erase completely. I have pice of each coat and results. September 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This product is HORRIBLE I used this paint for my daughters room and have had nothing but trouble with it. Such a bad choice. I have contacted the company and have just gotten the run around. Don't buy it! September 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by terrible product i already had a painted on dry erase board that was chipping so i decided to sand off the old and fix it. the application and directions were very easy to follow and i did everything according to the directions but the end product didn't work as good as it looked. the dry erase markers would not erase without alot of elbow grease. in the end i DO NOT recommend this product August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible product! I tried this product because it was cheaper than Idea Paint, but I definitely got what I paid for. I prepped the area according to the instructions, applied three coats and waited 5 days before using the surface. It looked great, but that was it. I used expo dry erase markers, but they did not "erase". The only thing that would erase the markers was Goo-Gone and a LOT of elbow grease...even then there are ghost marks. I was looking forward to having a dry erase wall for months, and now I am starting over from square one. My friends have used both Idea Paint and the Sketch Pad paint, and have had great results and the true functionality of a dry erase board. Skip the Rustoleum brand! July 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money I have been happy with chalkboard paints and wanted to try this product for my classroom. I followed all the directions exactly. Yep, you can write on it, but you'll end up seeing everything from now on no matter how hard you scrub. Super sucky product. August 22, 2016
