Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by julep Nice paint, did the trick.
I bought a can of this exact paint, in oil rubbed bronze, to refurbish my outdoor garage lights. I'm posting a before-and-after photo to show you my results. The paint covered well, the dry color is a pretty metallic paint, the color is a dark, espresso color (not as dark as black, but more like a cup of black coffee, a rich dark brown-see photo). The only downsides? Well, the pull trigger is clunky and designed poorly. And, the paint "sputtered" sometimes as I was painting. Other than that, I liked the paint, it dried nicely, I put the 2nd coat on about 40 mins after the first, and now my lights look brand new. See my photos, and see for yourself. Hmmm, trying to post my photos and it's not working.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by debfl Love it!
I have bronze window frames. I live in FL and over the years the sun was brutal on them. My photos don't show how horrible my window frames were. They were faded and they had paint spattered from original painting. I decided to have my house repainted after 16 years and want my frame painted too, but was quoted too much $ to paint the frames. At first I was intimated that I, someone who has rheumatoid arthritis and with no painting experience, could ever paint window frames. I did it! I have 14 windows and went through 8-10 cans and only experienced 1 can that became clogged, I just had to scrap the nozzle with my finger nail and it sprayed perfectly. Because of ra in my hands this trigger spray design worked wonderful for me. I receive some many compliments that even my 78 yr old father did his window frames. This is the BEST paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Julep liked it so well I completed a 2nd project
I posted earlier about the two garage lights I repainted in Rustoleum Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. That project turned out so well I decided to paint the porch light with the raining paint in the spray can.
The only difference between my first project and this one was that this time I only waited about 20 minutes before putting the 2nd coat of paint on. It worked out fine. I did not take a photo of my "before" light, unlike the last project I posted, but here is the after photo. It's dark, and here it looks darker than it does in person.
Overall, I'm happy with the quality of this paint. I just had a brand new front door installed, complete with a new storm door, peep hole, and door bell. Now, my porch light matches beautifully thanks to this paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AussieLady Changed chrome tub fixtures to oiled bronze overnight!
I had updated my master bathroom with new rubbed bronze faucets, light fittings, toilet roll holder, towel rail, and so forth, but the drain, faucets, and spout in the tub all remained chrome (silver) colored. I could only find one bronze faucet available, at a cost of $28 which was more than I wanted to spend.
I thought this Rust-oleum paint might be worth a try - at worst I would end up buying the $28 faucet!
This paint has given my tub new life! The color is remarkably accurate for "oil rubbed bronze" and I couldn't be happier. I painted the fittings with Zinsser Primer first, just to be sure the Rust-oleum would adhere, even though it is supposed to. The Rust-oleum took a bit longer to dry (I did two coats) than usual because it is very humid here in Dallas from recent rain, but today the paint is almost completely dry and the fittings now match the rest of the bathroom.
I'm so pleased that I'm going to paint the brass frame of the sliding glass tub doors as well!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by amaysing2015 Loved the color
The color was perfect for the project I was working on but what a hassle to apply. The spray nozzle looked easy to use, I thought yay! This should be so much better than the usual push button style. Needless to say looks can be deceiving! By the time I was finished I had the paint all over my hands and since it drizzled out in some spots instead of spraying like it should to apply a nice even coat of paint I had to sand down a couple of spots so an easy project that should have taken at the most 20 minutes to finish took a couple of hours. I would not recommend this product if you want an even coat and clean hands.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Missussayers This is not oil rubbed bronze
its a nice shade of black with a metallic glitter though. It adhered well to plastic canister lids I painted for my pantry. The one major issue I have is the nozzle. I'm an artist and this is not my first rodeo with rustoleum but the nozzle is very poor and you have to get a good spray going before aiming toward desired project because it comes out in bursts no matter how long and hard you shake the can. Which then leaves you with less product. It's not the answer but it works I guess

If you only use this paint, the finish appears metallic charcoal gray. If you base coat with Burnished Amber. Then dust with this to desired darkness. Presto! Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyCustomer stays tacky after days ...
I am having major problems with the entire Rustoleum Metallic specialty colours. They seem to dry fast but if you handle them tightly, you leave fingerprints. If heavy items are layed on clith , they stick many days after spraying. Great colours that never dry... given that this is a premium product, this is unacceptable.
