Good amount of glitter. Be advised that this has a clear base. It is not silver paint with glitter in it. I sprayed it over silver.

I have purchased the product in a blue color and was for the most part pleased with it. However the gold was not good at all we had to get it un clogged several times after shaking it for over ten mins it barely sprayed out n leaked all over my hands. I really love the glitters but would like to see better ways to get them to spray correctly. Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback about Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray Paint! If the clog is inside of the nozzle, we recommend removing it and soaking it in mineral spirits to help clear any loose pigments.

Looks Great So Far
I bought 3 cans to do a guitar for my granddaughter who's all about purple glitter. It took a minute to get the hang of spraying it because it comes out pretty aggressively, but it turned out nicely. I did 3 coats followed up with a coat of the sealer. I will be doing a couple more coats of the sealer before I call it done. but so far it looks great.the one can that was partially used worked fine when I was using it but won't spray now after sitting for a few weeks, so be sure and follow the directions to clear the nozzle when you finish spraying it . I probably didn't, but all 3 cans worked fine for me when I used them.

    Initially, it was great. The color was very nice (unique) and applied easily to my son's CO2 car. But when we tried to apply a second coat a few days later, the nozzle seemed clogged, and I was unable to clear it soaking it in hot water and mineral spirits.

    Hmm, that doesn't sound right. Inside each can of Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray is a dip tube that pulls the paint from the bottom of the can to the tip. If the pigment in the paint is too big or if there's not enough pressure behind it, it can get stuck in the tube or tip and the paint won't spray. Try turning the can upside down and spraying for a few seconds. If the clog is in the tip, soaking it in mineral spirits should clear it out. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

    To help prevent clogging with Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray, it is essential to shake the can often during your application. The nozzle can also be soaked in Mineral Spirits as well. For the best coverage, we do recommend applying over a smilier colored topcoat.

    The only way I would recommend this product is you will need to paint the surface white first as a primer base then use this product because it does not look like the cap it only looks like the cap if you coat it in layers. Also had to return 2 cans because it will stop spraying and clog up

    The spray can worked great. My only real complaint was that it wasn't as glittery/sparkly as I anticipated. I ended up having to use a base white coat 1st, then use the pearl. In the end I even dusted my project with the silver glitter spray to give it the shimmer I was trying to obtain with the white pearl.

    This Glitter Spray Paint looks fabulous. I bought two cans. The first one worked great. When I went to use the second can it stopped working more than half way. I tried to unclog it and no go. Also as the paint started drying, it started cracking, very weird. I don't know if I got a bad can or what. The 1st can did not do that. I was very disappointed.

      Thank you for sharing your experience using our Specialty Turquoise Glitter Spray Paint. The nozzle for the glitter spray cans is a high volume nozzle designed to evenly distribute the coating. We recommend shaking the can thoroughly prior to, and periodically during the application to ensure that the coating sprays evenly. Rustoleum

      Works great when it's not clogged up. This company should re-think the nozzle apparatus. I understand the complicity of combining, adhesives, glitter, paint and gases..but they're the ones who wanted to develop, manufactur, distribute, wholesale, retail and put this product on my beloved Home Depot shelves. I would recommend this product but you must take off the cap (use eye protection and gloves) and soak nozzle in finger-nail polish remover and clean with compressed air between use. Anyway..I hope I helped someone with this review....Good Crafting!

      This is my first use of a glitter spray paint, and I was surprised to find it is pink glitter in a clear base. I think my results would have been improved if I used a base coat, but I did not. That being said I believe the spray paint performed well. I am a bit heavy handed (or impatient) when applying spray paint; it took me two coats and most of the can to cover a lawn flamingo so that no original color showed through. I had no problems with dripping, pooling or anything like that. The dry time seemed around average. I think the value was better than other brands that sold their glitter spray paint in smaller cans. The included picture shows my lawn flamingo after two coats of this paint. I would buy this again if the need arises.

        Don't glitter without this..!
        This product is essential to anyone working with glitter! I'm helping my little sister with her wedding and glitter is definitely the in product right now. Before we starting using this the glitter was literally everywhere after a simple project (my clothes, the house, the garage, the yard, the kitchen somehow... you get the idea). Spraying the glitter craft projects with this clear coat keeps the glitter shed to a minimum (and to be honest that's good for the craft projects too!). Apply this liberally to seal in all the mess!

        Must have addition to spray glitter!
        This product is used to seal and protect the spray glitter that I reviewed earlier. The product sprayed evenly and dried quickly. It did appear to seal the glitter well so that the danger of the glitter rubbing off is reduced. Just as with the glitter spray, due to the rough texture there is little or no gloss. After using both the glitter spray and this clear sealer together, to enhance the durability of the finish I definitely recommend using this on any project where you used the spray glitter

        Definately glitter!
        The label says glitter, and this paint does have glitter. The flakes are much larger than regular metallic or metal flake paint. This created a small issue as the spray nozzle became clogged several times, but it was a simple task to clear it with a pin and continue spraying. Also there is virtually no gloss and the texture is rough, even when top coated with the clear. However, when you have a project that calls for an even application of glitter, this product is perfect.

        The product doesn't cover well. It takes a lot of product to achieve solid coverage. I sprayed over white primer. If I were doing it again, I'd prime as I did, then give it a coat of non-glitter gold, then apply the glitter.

        Thank you for sharing your experience with us. For a more intense glitter, we recommend applying a base coat of a similar color before applying Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart Rustoleum

        Bad Can?
        Not sure if I just got a bad can, but there was no glitter in the one I received. Also, instead of a six pack, I only got a single can. Now, that could have been because this was a free sample for review, or it could be that the product description is wrong. Either way, I only got a single can, and after mixing for over a minute with the rattle ball moving smoothly in the can, I could not detect any glitter in any samples I sprayed (see photos). It could be a fine product, but quality control is lacking if there is no glitter in the mix. Product goes on very wet, be careful not to overspray as the product will run like water.

        Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Sealer Spray Paint is intended for use over Rust-Oleum Specialty Glitter Spray Paint to provide additional protection. If a glitter effect is desired, we recommend applying a coat or 2 of our Glitter Spray Paint first and then applying the sealer.

        Once applied looks great. Super finish.
        The Pearl White Glitter Paint by Rust-Oleum does not go on quite as nice as the regular spray paint by this same company. It seems to foam up upon application. I use this brand all the time but have not tried a paint containing glitter. I am sure it is only my technique and by the time I was finishing the can on various yard orniments I got the hang of it by adjusted my application and was satisfied with the end results. One can of this Spray Paint of course is not enough for several ornaments so I will buy additional of same to finish my projects at Home Depot. The color once air dried in the sun looks great and meets my approval. Two thumbs up! My ornaments look great and are protected from rust and or for another year from sun and weather. Thanks Rust-Oleum....

        Only Glitter is White, Not Paint
        We are decorating my daughters’ room and thought this paint would be good for sprucing up a few décor items. We decided to paint a decorative wooden boat for use in their room. I was expecting white, but was surprised to find the propellant was clear and only the glitter was white. We went ahead and painted the boat with a base coat in a color we wanted and then painted on the glitter. The first application hit a bit of a snag as the glitter was not spraying very well at first after the first round of shaking, after shaking the can for another minute the second try resulted in nice even coverage. Despite our confusion over color and first try at application, it came out quite well. The photos I’ve included for my review don’t quite do it justice, in person though the coverage of the glitter was nice and even and not overwhelming either. I'm sure you could do this with loose glitter and clear coat or glue, but you will never get results this even. Most importantly, my daughters love the finished product. I will most likely finish this off with a clear coat as recommended to protect the finish.

        Pretty good satin clear
        This is for use with the glitter paints to seal them or put a protective coat over them that makes it harder to leave finger prints and etc on the glitter paint. It is kind of a satin type finish and doesn't seem to change the color of the glitter paint much but does make it a little bit shinier. It would also work well for coating anything else that you would like to clear coat with a mat or satin finish. It is a little runny so be careful to use light coats.

        Works ok
        The instructions are kind of poor for this if you want it to cover a base color completely you will need about 7 coats and it will only cover about a foot square per can. You are better off to start with a base coat of white if you want it to look white. The paint itself is kind of a translucent milky white and quite thick, it does not spray on smooth like regular spray paint, it leaves a textured finish. If you spray it over another color it will let that color show through. Which is fine if that is the look you want. It does have a lot of glitter which my pictures don't show well. It dries to kind of a textured dull satin finish, if you use the clear sealer it makes it a little more glossy but the clear sealer has kind of a satin finish. After spraying part of the can the propellant leaked out and could not use the rest of the can, and yes I turned it upside down to clear the nozzle after use and tried cleaning the nozzle and top of the can.

        Gloppy Uneven Application
        I did not have much luck with this glitter spray paint. The nozzle was not easy to press down and kept sticking. The glitter also came out gloppy, and did not coat very well. I did Apply it at less than ideal conditions as it was cool out that day but the paint where warm (had been in my house for days) and I went outside for literally a minute to spray it. I have to say I would not try this one again.

        Oh no! We don’t like to hear that! Certainly, it is important to thoroughly shake the can prior to use, and occasionally during use as well. The can should be shaken for no less than one minute after the mixing ball in the can begins to rattle. This ensures that the product is mixed well, and prevents larger particles from being sprayed through the nozzle. Rustoleum
        Great for Arts and Crafts
        I’ve noticed that quite a few of the reviews for this product seem to think that a job can be done with one coat of paint. It says on the can that multiple applications can be necessary and to start with a base coat of primer! I started with some 1/5 plywood, and sanded it with 80, 150, 220 and 320 paper to get a nice smooth surface. I then prepped it with some drywall primer. It soaks in very well to plywood and gave me a great white surface to start with. On the first coat, I attempted to hit the nooks and crannies as well as possible. This resulted in what at first looked like blobs in the paint, but as it dried, everything evened out. The second coat established a better look, but still had some blank spots. A third coat, which was primarily just hitting those blank spots, did the trick. However, as a finished product I was not happy. The glitter flakes off easily (like all glitter does) when the wood is handled. I really don’t want green glitter all over my house, so I put a couple coats of polyurethane on the glitter. Not only did this help the glitter stay on, but it also gave more sheen to the final project. As far as ease of use, this is just as easy to use as any other spray paint. There was some clogging issues on the third coat, as the can had been sitting for almost 24 hours before I got back to it, but I have yet to see it clog to the point of inoperability, which others have complained about. When it's all said and done, just like any other paint, this spray paint depends heavily on solid prep work to look its best. It covers and applies well, and it even dries quick!

        Beautiful Color!
        This glitter spray paint does have quite alot of glitter in it but you can either spray lightly or heavily. It is up to you. It was perfect for re-painting a wooden easter bunny for the yard and a quick fix to spruce it up for another year of use. Very easy to work with once you get the feel for the sprayer and this particular color is very pretty especially in the sunlight. The pictures really do not do it justice. I will be using it again at Christmas time because I like it so much.. I used it very lightly just to add a little glitter to the white bunny's eggs. You can see in the picture I just wanted to add a little sparkle. And I used it heavily on the pink bunny and completely re-painted it. So you can get creative and get different results. It dries very fast. I do recommend it!

        GLITTER SPRAY PAINT
        I am not pleased with the coverage of this paint. I painted some different surfaces and with 1 coat it looked like I hadn't put anything on it at all. It took 3 coats to look good and if you want it to look like the picture, you will have to put more coats on your project. The cost of the paint would be crazy for any project. It looks great with 4 coats. I would not use this product for any of my projects.

        GLITTER SPRAY PAINT
        I sprayed several different items. All the items needed at least 3 coats of paint to look good. If you spray only 1 coat it looks like there is nothing on it at all. After 3 good coats, it looks great. I am not pleased with the way it coats because it will take too much paint for any project to make it look good. For the paint to look like the pictures, you must put more than 3 coats. That is why I don't recommend this paint.
