Yes BEAUTIFUL translucent sheen BUT even with professional painters following every step and doing the base prep this is NOT an easy paint. Why? You cannot cut in at the corners or edges first with a brush or small roller even working quickly and keeping a wet edge- flashing is VERY noticeable. A spray technique is best!! even just using a home pressure pump microlized sprayer. ,using a roller leaves slight orange peel skin,, which is nice and even but it softens the sheen so that then this warm pearl white is only noticeable in certain lights, hand brushing does heightens the subtle metallic look more but Leaves fine brush lines. Only if you start from top in one long brush stroke with little overlap, needs two people to work one following the other result looks like fine wallpaper. It's gorgeous, the Pearl White luminescence casts looks brighter white in the can on the wall it's a pale pale gold look I tested it first and LOVED it . I just wish everyone found it easier to work with. I think using those red plastic flat paint pads to drag over the wall while wet to smooth/glaze the walls might be the answer. I don't know. We did 3 coats on a bright white undercoat, (zinzer 123 type) no sanding in between works best. Better for Accent walls rather than adjacent walls/ceilings or you get roller overlap where the walls meet or at the ceiling. We just finished the job and it does look good, can't fuss over the slight overlap imperfections. Be aware it cannot be touched up after its dry The touched up areas will flash. You have to repaint. Dries beautifully. Seems resistant. Delivery was great, gallon cans well secured with clips and home depot was fast.!

Thank you for sharing your experience and providing this excellent feedback on our Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection Satin Paint. Metallic pigments can be a little more temperamental than solid color paint since the pigment can lay and reflect light differently depending on the direction it is applied. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

This is not exactly the color of antique but a bit on the olive green end. On shading with pure gold one, it worked wonders on the pic frames & sculpture.

Excellent product, we use it in many of our products that we actually sell with The Home Depot online too, although for an unknown reason Modern Masters discontinued it, the impact will be huge for us all that use this Antique Copper Metallic paint.

I love, love, love the color and it goes on beautifully. The only issue I came across is it is not great with painters tape. I am redoing my kitchen and needed to use painters tape for the design I was creating. The painters tape (from Home Depot) which I have used dozens of times, did lift bits of the paint which was dry for 3 days. Not a big deal but not expected. I love the paint, I have purchased other colors of and is used throughout my house and on other projects.

Completely surpassed by expectations! I thought the color was going to be too bronzey, but it was the perfect yellow-gold I was looking for to paint a moon & stars mural in my daughter’s room. 10/10!

My accent wall turned out beautiful. I chose the champagne metallic and it really brings glam to my living space. I will say that metallic paints show all imperfections in your wall, so be mindful of that. I actually love the imperfections it gives the wall character.

I was expecting this to have more of a glittery look to it and it basically looks like any other black paint. It’s a nice paint with good coverage just disappointed it wasn’t blingy.

Thank you for reaching out! Rust-Oleum Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection has a rich, metallic shimmer effect. Since the Black Pearl color is semi-opaque, a minimum of 3 coats is needed for the best coverage.

We appreciate your feedback, Billie! The Rust-Oleum Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection will have a metallic sheen to all of the colors. For Mystical Green, at least 2 coats will be needed to ensure the best color.

The waiting time is almost unreasonable considering only one finish and color was available. About a cup of the product was on the outside of the paint can and in the box. For the price all these factors made me less than happy. Love the paint its self.
