Excellent go to paint for murals!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been using Behr Marquee color samples (over 30 types and counting) for my murals. I love the consistency and ability to stick with one stroke. I sometimes spray sealant to protect it but see that it is very different to scuff with the marquee. Great paint to mix in with white paint to get a lighter colors to bounce off the light. The only paint I use!
      Great paint did exactly what needed to be done...

              Flat is closer to eggshell or satin
              Very very hard to paint with as dries very fast and hard to keep a wet edge. As a result lap marks and diffetent texture depending on how wet the roller is are almost a given and since flat has a very significant sheen the markes are obvious. Would beb a disaster on high ceilings or walls with light that shines at an angle. Not happy at all. Just skip.this paint!
              Response from Giovanna, Behr Customer CareSep 10, 2021
              Hi Alabamamike, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the matte finish was glossier than expected, and that the paint dried too fast. This is not typical, and I understand your disappointment. I recommend adding 4 oz. of water per gallon to slow down the dry time, and recoating to get an even finish. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. I'll reach out to you in a private email to find the best way to help. Have a great day! -Giovanna
                Great coverage
                This is a really great product that has fantastic coverage, even on the first coat. Covers even dark colors with one coat. I usually do two coats to give an even greater finished product. Looks great when dry and washes extremely well. It’s well worth the extra money!
