I have been working on projects for my daughter's wedding and copper is one of her primary colors for decorating. I researched the best copper paints to use. I ordered the package of 6 Rust-Oleum Speciality paints to use on all of the products. Without hesitation I must say this paint in truly outstanding. It was easy to apply and delivered the color and sheen of PURE COPPER. I painted a metal easel and glass jars that will be used as centerpieces. I would highly recommend this product if the user wants the real look of copper.
I have bought and used many different spray paints for many different projects, and this is the first one that’s ever intimidated me. I really wanted a metallic gold paint that didn’t have the typical matte looking finish. When I saw the reflective gold color on the cap, I really thought it was way too good to be true and there was NO WAY it would actually come out that shiny gold color, especially for less than $4. I thought it was worth a try, so I grabbed it and a can of the typical metallic matte gold paint just incase it didn’t work out. Not only did it come out a perfect shiny and reflective gold exactly like I wanted, it was the easiest paint I have ever used. It is ALMOST impossible to get any drips. I did push my luck and l got too close when painting one of the vanity legs that had an imperfection in the wood that I was too lazy to fill and sand down correctly. I did a quick wipe on the small drip and immediately sprayed a thinner coat on that section and all was well. I am beyond happy with the overall results of this product and I love the color so much that I went back the next day to buy a few more cans to have on hand for future projects. I will say it is not exactly the color on the cap. Since my project was wood, it may have cut down on how reflective it looks, maybe if it was used on glass or metal it would be closer to the cap color. If you have realistic expectations you will be very pleased with this paint.

I purchased the 1915830 Metallic Silver paint thinking it would provide a, "Bright Reflective Finish" as described on the label. However, what I received was a dull lackluster gray finish.
I thought I would give RUST-OLEUM another shot, mainly because there isn't much competition in the metallic spray paint industry and I'm glad I did. If you are looking for a nice reflective silver or chrome finish, use product 7718 Chrome from RUST-OLEUM. It's the same price, but a much better product.
I don't recommend this product unless you are looking for a dull gray finish.

That is odd! Uneven gloss levels or streaking can be attributed to a couple of things. If you are not shaking the can vigorously enough or holding the can too close to the surface while spraying. Rust-Oleum Specialty Metallic Spray should be held 10 to 16 inches from the surface. Spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Be sure to keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion while spraying. Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart to avoid drips and runs. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5
I primed some jar lids with a gray rustoleum primer. The primer seemed to work just fine, but this gold metallic seems to separate and is really streaky. this is just the first coat in the picture. hopefully more coats will fix it. I followed directions on both the primer and metallic.

Hmm, something is amiss here. Please keep in mind that the conditions can affect the dry time of the primer. Make sure to allow more time at cooler temperatures. A thicker coating application can extend the dry time as well.
