RE: Gloss Black. If you care about what your project looks like. DO NOT buy the Universal (trigger design sprayer). Buy something with the classic button-style sprayer. Regardless of the angle, this design will leave splatter marks and you’ll end up sanding them out or re-doing your project. The splatters that the design has caused sets me back several hours.

Oh no, this is not what we like to hear! Rust-Oleum Universal Advanced Formula Spray Paint provides superior coverage and finish. In order to deliver that superior product our paint is loaded with high quality pigment. Shaking vigorously once the mixing ball begins to rattle prior to painting and throughout the painting process keeps everything in the can mixed perfectly, this allows for proper spray.

Great paint but faulty nozzle.
I used oil rubbed bronze to recoat several metal exterior light fixtures that had lost their finish to years of sun exposure and weather.  The paint is great, applied smoothly and evenly and when dried showed a strong clean finish. It dried quickly. The big downside is that two of the four cans leaked paint down the can and along the trigger pull. It was wasteful and made reshaking the cans a cautious effort. Other than the mess I am very pleased with the outcome of this paint project.

Finicky and uneven quality

I used this product to refinish shutters. I purchased four cans and it required every last drop to paint six shutters. The ease of use varies quite a bit from can to can no matter how much or how often I shook them. At times the paint sputtered and sprayed like a Jackson Pollack painting. I was going to use the same product to refinish my wrought iron railings but am searching for something different. The results will be fine from afar, and the color is great. But it took quite a bit more finagling (and I suspect more paint) than it should have.

I painted 2 clay pot planter with it. I love it. I like the fact that it has primer, so I didn't have to put a first coat. I only did one coat and no need a 2nd one. Advice 1. Shake very well before use 2. Test (practice somewhere) 3. Maintain the spray can vertically for better results.

The spray nozzle drips. Prefer the original paint spray nozzle better.

We appreciate your feedback! For the best results with Rust-Oleum Universal Spray Paint and Primer in One, you want to ensure the can is shaken for a full minute before each use and often during application. We also recommend applying to a vertical surface when possible, so that larger drops fall to the ground and not on the surface.

Not Espresso Brown

Be warned... The Espresso Brown color is far from the images shown. It's more of a mid brown. See image attached. I have stopped my project so I can find an actual Dark Espresso Brown paint. Very misleading & frustrating.

Sputters, Drips,
To begin, I have painted professionally and as a hobbyist for many years, so this review comes with some experience. I have several complaints about this can (the paint is not the problem) 1. Sputter: I squeeze the trigger fully, as partial squeezing can lead to spattering. Still, when fully squeezed, this can tends to spatter paint. I have had to sand and repaint because of it. 2. Dripping: Paint drips down from the nozzle onto my fingers. When the can is held above the piece I am painting it drips paint onto the surface of the part. After spending HOURS priming and sanding to get a smooth part, the dripping frustrated me so bad that I will NEVER buy this product again. What a waste of time. 3. Air spurts: This can is advertised to spray at any angle, however unless it is held upright, it tends to spurt randomly, leaving an area that is missing paint. Very disappointing.Sadly, I cannot recommend buying this paint.

That is not what we like to hear, Mark! Our Universal Paint and Primer in One is designed to spray evenly at any angle, and should not sputter or spray erratically as described, so this is not at all what we expect from this product. Please give us a call at 800-481-4785, we want to try to make things right! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
Worked for me- so easy
I only had 4 shutters to paint and this made the job so easy. I not some people had issues with the spraying nozzle, but i had zero issues with applying the spray paint. Love the brown dark brown color- made my shutters look brand new. I can’t comment on how the paint will hold up over time, but for now i am very pleased with how my shutters look

After reading many reviews I agree the spray is very uneven. I shook the can vigorously at the start and during but at the beginning of each spray I got sputter and then cloud like spraying. It seemed as if there wasn’t enough pressure in the can. So needless to say there was a ton overspray; like 3’ and poor coverage. I used one can on one chair and barely got any coverage. At this rate I would need about 2-3 cans per chair. It’s made such a mess because of the overspray. The trigger is more ergo but if you don’t press exactly in the right position you will also get sputter. Think I’ll go back to the tried true spray can.

That is not what we like to hear! Our Rust-Oleum Universal Paint and Primer in one Spray Paints should cover 10-15 ft² per can, and are designed to spray evenly from beginning to end. Take care to pull the nozzle straight back during use, and keep in mind that smaller or more intricate surfaces may use more paint due to the smaller surface area. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
