People told me that if you did not spray the paint on it would not look good, but I thought what do I have to lose?

I have to say this stuff worked better than I thought. After 30+ years of hardwater stains, about 1/3 of my tub was black. I followed the instrutions completely and it looks great. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone. It has been a few months and there are no signs of wear. A few things to note:
1. you will need a respirator style mask the fumes are bad while applying it.
2. you have to watch the runs if you put it on too thick (I got runs but it's so bright you can't really see them.
3. you can't get it wet for 5 days once finished (minor problem if it is your only shower)

Knowing these thing going in, this should be a fairly simple project with great results. Much, much easier than replacing the tub.

Well, let me start by saying we were just looking for a short-term solution for a pink-tiled bathroom. We plan on re-doing the bathroom within the next 2 -3 years, so almost anything was better than the pink tile. The tile in question was the toilet and sink surround of a very small bathroom, which went from floor to about halfway up the wall (I am guessing about 40sqft of surface give-or-take). We also have tile in EVERY window sill of our house (built 1947), and the bathroom project will determine if we refinish those as well (currently a yellow-looking whitish tile). Not sure if it'll make the cut as of yet.

I followed the instructions through the 2nd coat, and still had brush marks. I used the included brush (cheap, as other reviewers mentioned) gently for the 1st layer and spread it on thin. The 2nd layer, I used a foam brush (I tried to use the foam roller included, but it seem to leave too many bubbles). I can see where the product smooths out some with the 2nd layer, but it doesn't becoma completely smooth (at least not with the included brush and a foam brush) - you could still see brush marks. Also, I still saw some pink through the layers after the 2nd coat.

So, this is where I deviated a little. The instructions said to wait for curing for 5 days, then apply a 3rd coat using a new kit. Well, I didn't want to wait or put the extra money into my dumpy small bathroom anyway. So, I put the can and brush in the freezer a 2nd night and pulled them out again for a 3rd coat. This time, I used a the 3' foam roller included in the kit (worth noting - the foam roller is cheap, too, and it sheared appeard and broke to a 1.5" roller just as I was finishing up my first coat using it).

I had a mishap with a ladder in my bathtub. So, how do you fix a hole in a tub rather than replace it? Sand down to bare fiberglass, remove all dust, cut your new fiberglass cloth and rebuild the bottom of the tub with cloth and resin, sand smooth so you can't tell it was repaired, then paint with this epoxy. Then apply finishing coats.

I did all this, and got a better than new finish out of it. The bottom of the tub looked so good, I had to extend the paint in this kit all the way up the interior of the tub to make it blend in. (wait for first coat to dry, sand entire tub, clean and repeat).

A little color matching tint in this kit would make matching colors possible and increase the versatility of this very useful product immensely.

One serious plus: If you put this paint in the freezer it lasts a long time. I had put it in the deep freeze and forgotten about it. 3 months later when I broke the drain in my masterbath shower, (don't ask) I did a similar repair and the paint was not only still good, I had more left over to put back into the deep freeze! I had also done 3 coats on each of these surfaces, so I am confident in telling you that there's enough for any standard tub/shower repair included in the kit. Just be prepared for your tub to be whiter than it ever was before.

I have a problem though: I'm wondering what else I can paint to use up what's left.

Regarding earlier complaints about brush bristles falling out: The kit I got had a sponge roller supplied with a flimsy plastic pan of comparable size. It was sufficient for the purpose. On the second use of the brush, (second project - it was fine for the first tub repair), the rounded tip fell off and I had to replace it.

So far it seems like a good product. BUT... I ended up using a small sponge roller to apply the second coat. There is no way I can see ending up with a smooth finish using the supplied brush. I'm sure that if you can, spraying it on would be the best way to go.

We resurfaced a very large bathtub with this product. After the first coat (using the brush) the product looked pretty uneven, but we were too far in it to back out, so after waiting the appropriate amount of drying time, we applied the second coat using the roller. The roller is a cheap piece of crap (understatement) and fell apart. Pieces of foam were literally getting stuck in the epoxy. It was disastrous. We managed to pick them all out and finish with the brush. It looks great considering what a hard time we had with that roller! I'd definitely recommend this product- just steer clear of the roller.

Things to consider before you start:
caulk removing tools
ventilation mask
find somewhere else to shower for a week while the product cures.
