Originally I reviewed this quick based on a practice test on wood but when I used it much more and on other surfaces I noticed some issues.
I'm able to compare with the Rustoleum product which is nearly identical in color, the glossy apple red and is also a prime + paint.
However, the differences in the two I noticed is purely bad for Krylon.
The krylon for whatever reason did not dry well, I gave it two days and without pressure set it on something and paint came off after a few minutes and lifting it up, this NEVER happened with Rustoleum and with shorter dry time, and it also did NOT happen with the Krylon pure paint products.
The worse part is this product sprays all over the place, there is no direct shot, it sprays a cloud to take out a riot.
I can't express that enough, which is a problem unless you have some crazy paint studio but I was working within a confined space and same as I have other times and the lack of precision in the spray and you can shake all you want, it's frustrating but just messy and you'll have a lot of unwanted clean up afterwards. Maybe setup a "Dexter" like plastic covered studio, I don't have that.
I just think this is the way it is and other products are superior.
If you do have this product and must use it please keep those things in mind and hopefully it all works out, but I wouldn't trust ever setting it down on something but instead plan on coating it with a poly or something else as a finisher no matter what and then you don't have to worry I have the feeling it never dries like better products and I can't speculate as to why.
