  • Suitable for family rooms, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kids' rooms and hallways
  • Eggshell sheen offers a soft velvety appearance
  • Excellent hide; 5 gallons cover up to 2000 sq. ft. depending on application, color and surface porosity
  • For best application, use a high quality 3/8 in. - 1/2 in. nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or airless sprayer (0.015 in. - 0.019 in. spray tip, 60 mesh filter)
  • Use BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (2 primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas
  • Lock in stains with BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a spot primer, for heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint to a small section, if stain bleeds through, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before top coating, if bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before top coating
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50°F-90°F (10°C-32°C), darker colors may require additional dry time between coats, cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time

Good coverage
I got this to paint our spare bedroom and wanted to try a bolder color i liked the idea of the paint being pre mixed. It has a great coverage with a smooth finish and for this application it only took one coat. I love this paint and the egg shell finish. will definitely buy this again. And I comes in many different colors. You cant go wrong with Behr Dynasty paints.
One coat painting
BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #790C-3 Dolphin Fin One-Coat Hide Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer This paint goes on smoothly with a brush or roller and did a great job covering an existing paint color. I used it to cover a flat paint color and only needed one coat to finish the project. I love that this paint container has a twist off lid and a pour spout included. The pour spout really helps with drips.

Durability and looks with only one coat
BEHR's Dynasty line comes in semi-gloss to dress up trim and doors, wainscoting, and other architectural features in a home. The stain-blocking elements let this cover all types of problem areas with one application after using the paint itself as a spot primer over the stains. The formula has stain-repelling elements as well, so you can wipe down the paint without worrying that it's going to leave signs behind. We're using this in our tiny mudroom. One way to make a small room look bigger is use the same color on the walls as on the trim. We used Dolphin Fin, which is a very light gray, on the wall in eggshell and got the semi-gloss for the trim and doors, which take a beating in this room. I've left some stains and uneven areas on the trim below the section I painted to show how well the paint works with a single coat. This was rolled and brushed onto the trim: rolled on larger areas, and painted with a brush on the smaller areas. The thickness of the paint helps it stick, and makes putting a razor-thin line on the trim against the wall very easy. Cleanup was simple, and no residue was left on the brush or roller. I have used paints that cost twice this much and was unhappy to find that residues were left that would not come off, which means the rollers and brushes have to be replaced more often. We're saving money on equipment and paint with BEHR's Dynasty option. Tac-free in 4 hours, so doors can be closed without marring the paint. First coat can be painted with a second coat if you really want in 2 hours.

Worth paint that costs twice as much
Exceptional results that exceed brands that cost twice as much with BEHR's Dynasty eggshell paint and primer. I got this to rehab our mudroom, which is very small, and currently very RED. I assumed that the wall color would require two coats of paint and primer mixed paint, or one or two coats of quality primer and then one or two coats of paint with primer. That's usually what a color like this red takes to cover. Thanks to BEHR's new Dynasty option, the time needed for this project was cut significantly, at least by half, and perhaps by as much as three quarters. One coat was all I needed to roll to cover the deep red fully. I did the edging around the trim with a brush, and started in a different area so my eyes wouldn't be fooled about coverage by the rolled paint. The brushwork usually takes two or more coats to cover a section like this with other paints. Again, BEHR's Dynasty option took care of things. In one coat! And despite the Dolphin Fin color being a very light gray. The paint is thick enough to be brushed on fairly heavily without running, which makes the coverage much more effective. Rolled on and brushed on smoothly. Cleanup was super easy with no residue like other high-end paints I've used have left in the equipment despite combing out the brushes. This paint is exceptional. As we move to different rooms, we'll be using this to save time and money, and will still end up with results that meet or exceed the very expensive brand. One gallon will cover a fairly large bedroom (think 20' x 20') or multiple smaller rooms. High ability to repel stains and resist scuffs, which is good even if you don't have kids or pets. Tack-free in 4 hours. Very low odor; in fact, I noticed none even when I had the can fully open to stir.

Nice Color
Totally please with Behr Dynasty matte finish paint. I choose the color dolphin fin for the walls. The color is a very light grey with just a hint of blue, that looks especially nice when the morning sun shines on it. I think the paint is a very high quality based on the finished result. This paint can be poured easily, using the cleverly designed combination spout/opener (there’s a video on the product page showing how to use the spout). I’m not sure about square foot coverage as I was applying to previously unpainted dry wall, the can says a gallon is good for 400 sq. ft. Coverage was good and looks really nice with just one coat. No noticeable odor while I was painting or when I finished (I painted with the door open on a sunny day). Paint spread easily with both roller and brush. Easy latex clean up. Will use Behr brand again.

new and improved
I chose the Behr Dynasty one coat hide matte finish paint and primer for my TV room. The color is #790C-3 Dolphin Fin, a light gray. I started my project this morning and have attached pictures. The paint goes on very smoothly and covers in one coat as advertised. I just love the new cans with the easy pour spout and rust-free plastic top. You can open the can to stir, and then close and use the spout to pour. Definitely makes for an easier job. I would definitely recommend this new line of Behr paint.

Good paint, but not the color I wanted
To be honest when I was at Home Depot on journal it was light color, but when I painted it came out very dark Behr was nice to replace me a gallon for different color

    I bought 3 gallons and painted my living and dining room this color. It is a true light gray with no weird blue or purple undertones. Looks nice in every light.
