          Works great
          We have a decorative frog that we keep outside. It got worn out by the desert sun so I decided to refinish it. After painting it I needed a good clear coat to make it last. A spray can clear coat is definitely the easiest way to protect it. I love how fast this one dries. In only five minutes you can do the next coat and I wanted to do quite a few layers. It was easy to use and applied nicely. The can will spray even if you turn it sideways to get in certain areas but it did drip from the nozzle which isn’t surprising. It dried perfectly clear and it is a true semi-gloss finish. Our frog lives to see another year outdoors and I plan to re-coat him before each summer so I don’t have to repaint him again. Make sure to spray in ventilated area as it does have the typical strong chemical smell. Very happy with this clear coat especially with the super fast drying time!

          Goes on smooth and dries fast
          GLIDDEN MAX FLEX 12 oz. Semi-Gloss Clear Interior/Exterior Topcoat Spray Paint is not quite a glossy as some other brands of semigloss so it is perfect for use sealing acrylic paints on most any surface. we use it to seal paints on rocks or other craft items. The spray pattern is about 3 inches wide at the 8 to 10 inch distance, the product goes on very smooth and dries very quickly. One note of caution is that it may not adhere well to Polyethylene materials.

          Looks great on wood
          Having a good topcoat is essential when finishing a woodworking projects. I have used many products, so I was excited to see Glidden have a new product available. The spray goes on easy and the fan spray pattern makes it even better to get a nice even coat when spraying. I didn’t have any issues with overspray and the topcoat went on smooth. So far the finish is looking good and I’m trying it out on a variety of different pieces.I’m excited to use this on a few upcoming wood projects!

          Easy to Apply, Great Coverage
          Super easy to use. Shook it for a few minutes until the ball was really moving. Used it on a bird house that I rebuilt. Hopefully this will give a bit extra protection. The spray pattern is misty. I feel like I got good coverage. Don't do this in the wind, but definitely use outdoors or very well-ventilated area it has a very strong smell. The finish is unnoticeable. Did not want any type of gloss. The top of the bird house already had gloss to it so no need for more. This matte finish is hard to see and will not reflect sunlight or any light. Just what I wanted. The feeling is fairly smooth. I can tell it's there. I did 2 coats and it's still smooth. Dried fast. I wasn't in a big rush, so I let it sit for a few days. Looks great, it's smooth and should help get through another year. The look and feel is great. I'm impressed enough I plan on applying this to multiple outdoor wooden chairs as well.

          Great topcoat
          I have used many brands of spray paint for many different applications and the Giliden max flex topcoat is a great option. Good coverage and a consistent spray make this a really nice finish to help protect a project. Overall I would definitely recommend this product. my review for the GLIDDEN MAX FLEX - GLIDDEN MAX FLEX 12 oz. Matte Clear Interior/Exterior Topcoat Spray Paint.

          The Best, hands down!
          Glidden Max Flex Topcoat Clear Semi-Gloss Spray Paint is the best I have ever used. This topcoat is phenomenal! From the ability to recoat in 5 minutes to the flawless finish it gives to any metal. I just finished spray painting a metal L angle edging. I used a topcoat that was suppose to be safe on metal. It bubbled my paint job. I had to sand the L angle and respray. The Max Flex arrived right on time to use as the topcoat. Max Flex left a flawless finish after the first coat. Since the item will be on the floor I put on a second coat. Again, another flawless finish all done with minutes, not hours. The first item was smooth metal. The second project was textured metal. It was done within minutes, and flawless too. There was no overspray issues, dripping spray paint, or clogged tips. Glidden has really broken the spray paint code. I recommend this spray paint to anyone who wants a flawless finish without all the old spray paint problems. And anyone who wants to get their projects done in minutes versus hours. Max Flex comes in several colors. I look forward to them coming out with vibrant colors like orange, yellow, greens, etc..

          strong smell
          This Glidden Max Flex clear topcoat spray did not impress me as much as I thought it would. It had a very strong smell that lingered for a long time afterward. Definitely use out side or in a well ventilated area. It claims that it will not drip or streak when you apply it. that was not the case for me. Maybe I sprayed it too heavily and maybe it was designed to cover a project with very light, multiple coats. It did dry very fast which is a definite plus. And I did try it on multiple items, so I know it will work on plastic, wood, metal, glass and foam board. I have the matte finish which is pretty, but it also comes in gloss. I think I will try it on some horizontal surfaces, such as some ceramic tile I want to put in my garden.

          GLIDDEN SEMI-GLOSS CLEAR SPRAY PAINT
          I have a few wood frames that I decided to used this on. Most wood frames are a flat color or barely glossed. I got this and tried it on one of my wood frames and the results came out pretty good. The semi-gloss is pretty descent and I will probably go to high gloss since this made my dull looking frame look a whole lot better after being sprayed with the semi-gloss coating.

          Easy to use, high quality topcoat
          GLIDDEN MAX FLEX 12 oz. Matte Clear Interior/Exterior Topcoat Spray Paint Painted surfaces, like wood or metal tables and chairs, and even painted plastic furniture or objects can look great when freshly painted. Give those items a little “life experience”, and the scrapes and scratches can take something away from that appearance. That’s why you need to protect it with Glidden’s Max Flex Topcoat Spray. It comes in either a matte or gloss finish to meet your needs. It dries quickly, in about 5 minutes. With its unique spray nozzle, the chance of drips or streaks is reduced. For greater protection, you can add more than one coat. I’ll be using it to finish off my hand-painted miniature figurines used for game playing. They take hours to paint, and I want to protect that time investment. Two Thumbs Up!
