Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dustfuzzie Terrible, miserable product
After 4 coats and 2 quarts of this paint on a brand new primed wall, we could never get a solid color. I couldn't edge with this paint at all; it ended up streaked and terrible looking, no matter how many coats. The finish was so rough and pitted that when we tried to prime it for use, the chalk dust filled the pits and holes in the paint. I now have to sand the entire surface, after peeling off the parts that wouldn't stick to the wall. Not to mention, the smell while we were painting and waiting for coat after coat to dry was a bit intense. I would NOT recommend this product, will not ever use it again, and probably won't buy Rustoleum in general, as I have NEVER had good luck with any of their products.

I followed the directions that were on the label, but still got a very uneven finish. I stirred the paint before applying to ensure that it was consistent (to avoid blotches) and used a high quality foam roller. The paint came out bright blue when it Banner Blue was supposed to be more of a navy. I used up the entire can of paint and it was still uneven. I let a day in between coats thinking that I was lifting the paint. It took me more than a week to paint this part of my office. If I had known this, I would have just gotten black paint to make my life easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by justmytwocents You can easily roll this
I read a review stating that the package was incorrect and you couldn't roll this paint. Completely untrue! I have painted this stuff multiple times and it always rolls great. You have to use a super smooth foam roller and your coats should be thin as they always should be when rolling paint. Maybe if you just dipped the roller into the paint and didn't roll it out on tray like you are suppose to then I can see it becoming an issue but otherwise this is a simple application with foam roller. Creates a super smooth untextured finish. As a side note I would sand the wall smooth and clean first if that is what you are painting. Don't skip steps you won't have the finish product you are looking for.

I got a gender neutral color (deep teal) to do various projects. It went on really easily and the color is beautiful. I recommend you put it on with a sponge roller instead of a brush. When it dries if there are bumps it makes it hard to write on with chalk. The directions say you need 2 or 3 coats, but I definitely needed 3 coats. I painted it onto metal and it worked wonderfully. I'm currently searching for more projects to use this with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ray1 Beautiful color
I got this chalkboard paint in the Chocolate Brown, rather than black, for my son's room to use on one wall. I love the color! It matches his room, better than black, and same effect for chalking. You have to wait 4 hours to apply the second coat, but you will need to! First coat is thin and sketchy. Easy to apply though. You will most likely need 3 coats. So, for one wall, plan on getting 3 of these 29 0z. cans. It's worth it! So different, that it was much more pleasurable painting ..knowing u can write on it later! Easy to clean up! I only wish I could get by with one coat, like the paint n primer in one. Or, that they made this in a GALLON size! By the way, you don't need any primer before painting chalkboard paint:) It grabs any surface well:)

I used Raspberry over their gray Magnetic Primer on a huge wall in my basement. Raspberry was not as bright because of dark primer, but both products work well. This was easy to do and my kids love it!! I have a functional accent wall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hudsonvalleychalkcar Better then I expected
I was expecting this to be great but a little difficult to apply since I was painting my car with it. I used a roller and it worked perfectly. Took me about 2 hours to paint the whole car with only 2 layers and I love it. Easy to apply, works great, and now everyone has a blast with my car.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CoraCordero Excellent product when you follow directions
I used 3 coats on one wall that was the size of a standard door. Excellent job. I still have nearly a whole can left. What am I going to do with all of this extra paint?? I wish it would come in a smaller size, therefore I could have gotten multiple colors and painted all kinds of fun stuff around the house!
