Great paint.
After all the reviews I’ve read, I still decided to try it myself & love it. I’m painting plastic 3 drawer containers to use in my granddaughter’s Frozen theme room. Though the colors in Frozen r basically blue, she loves Pink. So, the 1st thing Im doing is painting it candy pink. I painted the entire container, using several coats before the can was done. I also bought & used glitter red & never once did it clog up & looks great The only problem is, it goes on strong & covered all the pink. So I had to re-paint the pink over the glitter red. My only complaint but for most people, not a complaint, is, they don’t have the glitter pink in stock & I don’t like ordering anything.

Terrible adhesion, little coverage
I’ve sprayed a lot of things in my life but this is hands down the worst coverage I’ve gotten out of a can. Glitter and paint sometimes comes out and sometimes it comes out clear, despite shaking the can like a mad man. I blew through the entire can and could not cover what I needed. I covered the same area with a quarter can of primer.

Oh no, we can help, Jay. For the best coverage with the Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray, we recommend applying a base coat of a similar color first. You'll need to apply multiple coats of the Glitter paint to build up the glitter finish. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum
Spray basecoat first - Would not recommend
The cap made it look like this beautiful white pearl. I was painting some trailer wheels and expected much more than the outcome. The instructions state nothing about a basecoat and make it sound like this is white paint with glitter. I saw no evidence of white paint and pears merely as high pressure glitter be sprayed out. So basically without a white basecoat it only appears as though it's my base gray primer covered in glitter. Very disappointed...

Hi Timmy, keep in mind that our Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Sprays are designed and recommended for interior use only, and will not work properly for this application. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

Oh no, not something we like to hear! Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray Paint contains a lot of pigment and glitter, for that reason is it important to shake the can vigorously for at least one minute once the mixing ball begins to rattle. During the painting process is it just as important to shake vigorously to ensure the pigment and glitter remain blending in the can. All this shaking will result in a good, consistent spray. Give us a call at 800-481-4785 so we can hear more about your experience and work to make things right.

This spray paint is cool and all, but the can doesn't nearly go far enough. I spray painted my daughters power wheels jeep with this stuff. I used the silver for the wheels and the the purple one for the body. It took nearly 5 cans of the purple and 1 full cans for the wheels. PRO: Looks awesome when finished. CON: Uses wayyyy too much spray paint.

Great glitter paint, it is more of a clear coat with silver glitter with a very small amount of blue, needs a solid base coat of white or black in you want it to look super dense and sparkly. The tip will clog, follow instructions and it clears right up, really good paint. You can dust glitter or lay it on thick.

Nozzle Failured 2x and Counting
My daughter picked this paint for a table top. First can did not work. We got a tiny spurt and no more. The second can failed the same way after about 20 seconds of spraying. It's for my daughter so I have a 2 more attempts before I suffer the wrath of a six year old! Trying another color. Both cans remain 99% full and useless.

That's not what we like to hear, Jesse! To help alleviate clogging, we recommend removing the nozzle and soaking it in mineral spirits. Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray can also be held upside down and sprayed for a few moments to clear any lodged pigment in the can.

Kelly Green Glitter Spray Paint
After reading earlier reviews, we almost bailed on buying this and using it. We are so glad we went through with it. The project was a book cart that we sanded and painted using a green spray paint from Rust-oleum. We then used the glitter on top before two coats of polyurethane for longevity and a final spray with a Rust-oleum top coat. We bought mineral spirits in case the nozzle gunked up. But I can say we had zero issues. Even after I dropped a brand new can and the nozzle flew off, I was able to reattach the nozzle and it still worked like a charm. Awesome glitter coverage. Totally worth it.

The glitter spray is good when you can get it to work. I can't keep this spray once before the glitter gets stuck in the nozzle. I have had to return the product several times. I use it for crafts and I need this particular style often but its inconvenient. I have had times where I never even sprayed it that it clogged. The issue is the product.

That is not what we like to hear! Our Rust-Oleum Imagine Glitter Spray Paints contain larger glitter pigments, and shaking is especially important prior to pressing the spray nozzle for the first time. If a clog has occurred, you can try spraying the can upside down to clear the nozzle, however, if the can has clogged inside, there is unfortunately no way to clear the clog. Please give us a call at 800-481-4785, we want to try to make things right! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

We used this to paint a decoration for Christmas. We ended up needing two cans as it seems like this can does not have as much paint in it as a non-metallic can of paint does. What we painted was a smooth metal surface (horseshoes) and it adhered well. It looks good but didn’t seem to cover as well as I would have expected.

Thank you for sharing your experience! Please keep in mind that the condition or type of surface can affect the coverage rate of Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray. Previously painted surfaces, the number of coats, and the thickness of the coats can affect the coverage as well. To maximize coverage, hold the can upright 10 to 16 inches from the surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Make sure to keep the can the same distance from the surface and in motion while spraying. Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart to avoid drips and runs. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum
