These Dry-Erase kits have a shelf-life of 2 years. Anything over that, and the paint won't mix properly. There's no way to check the date on the box, but there's a code on the bottom of the cans that can help you figure out how long your kit has been on the shelf. (The cans are stamped with a code that begins with a letter and a number; the number corresponds with the year in which it was packaged. For example, T9 or P0 would be 2009 and 2010 respectively.) For this reason, I wouldn't recommend buying this product online. Find it in a store and check the cans.
Another way to tell if the paint is old is to check its consistency. This is an epoxy, so it won't be as smooth as a latex-based paint. However, your paint stick should go through to the bottom cleanly. If there's an inch of gunk at the bottom, it's been sitting around a long, long time.
If you've gotten an old kit (and still have your receipt), you can contact Rustoleum (800-323-3584) for a hassle-free full refund. You can also remove the paint by using an epoxy stripper like Jasco Spray Paint Remover or Peel Away.
Now, for the good news. These kits--if you can find one that isn't archaic--work remarkably well.Read more ›
1. The number one reason for product failure is expired product. End of story. This paint is only good for one year from date of manufacture. To determine the manufacturing date, look at the number printed on the bottom of the large can. Let's say it says 83219R. The representative told me to disregard the first and last digits and look at those in the middle. This paint would have been manufactured on February 19, 2013 (year is first, then month, then date). If it's more than a year from manufacture return it because it will fail. I realize this contradicts another excellent review that said to look at the last digit on the bottom of the can. It's possible that Rust-Oleum changed their numbering system and may do so again. When in doubt, call. I also would not purchase this product online because you can't personally check the cans (sorry, Amazon). The first cans I bought at Home Depot were indeed expired and when I exchanged them for newer product Home Depot put my expired cans back on the shelf and pretty much ignored what I said. So some other poor sap is going to have a dry erase wall from hell. I would suggest checking every can before purchase, period. You can hold a summoning and bring Michelangelo himself back from the dead to paint your wall, but if the product is expired it will suck regardless of who puts it on.
2. The second reason for failure is using the product too long after mixing. It's only good for 60 minutes after mixing the two cans. Period.Read more ›
1. I was painting over already white walls. I started by lightly sanding over the paint, just to make it a little smoother and get rid of any gunk that had piled up over the year and a half since the paint was applied. After, I lightly went over the area with a dry dish rag to wipe off any dust from the sanding.
2. I painted over the areas with latex primer. Behr Enamel Undercoater Primer and Sealer is what I used. One coat. I used a STANDARD roller for this. I let it dry overnight.
3. The next day, I painted on the whiteboard paint with a FOAM roller! This is going to make all the difference. No running. No spillage. I waited 30 minutes between coats and did three coats. The box says it covers a 7x7ft area, however I painted a 5x5 area and a 2x2 area with three coats each and still had over half the can left over, which unfortunately I had to throw away at the end of the process because the paint is only good for two hours after the two cans are mixed together.
4. WAIT! The box says wait 2 days. I went to Vegas for five. Painted it early Monday afternoon and tested it Saturday morning when I got back. Worked JUST like a dry erase board. I used EXPO BOLD COLOR ORIGINAL INK pens (apparently people have had problems with the low odor) and all four colors (black, blue, red, green) work perfectly.Read more ›

There is a loft in my daughters room and we used this product on her vaulted ceiling and she and her friends use it over and over.
It erases with a cloth to use again
After reading so many harsh reviews I was a little afraid to use this product, but it was only $14, so I decided to try it. I am glad we did. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Kevin Keiter
Once you let this fully dry - I'd give it a number of days, maybe a week in a well ventilated room - it is absolutely flawless to use. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Amazon Customer
Works great but you will need to plan all the areas you plan to paint in advance. Once you mix the paint and activator you only have a short amount of time to use it. Read morePublished 16 days ago by ashley elizabeth bell
