This spray paint is very smooth and pretty. I personally did not have any issue with clogging and I preferred using this can compared to the traditional spray paint can. My word of caution would be concerning the color. I have purchased several items that were already oil rubbed bronze when I purchased them (shower curtain bar, vanity knobs, door stop, etc). I decided to save money and paint the rest of my hardware rather than replacing it. This paint is extremely dark. It almost looks black and it did not match any of my previously acquired hardware. So, to remedy the situation, I purchased a can of aged copper paint (by the same manufacturer). I put on a really good base coat of oil rubbed bronze and then just lightly mist the aged copper color over it to give it the brownish tint when the light hit it rather than the black tint. I am thrilled with these results and it's the exact shade I was looking for. I cannot comment on how well it will hold up, but it looks great right now.

This stuff is the BEST! The coverage is phenomenal. So far out of one can, I have painted two Toilet Paper holders, one towel bar, one Double light switch, and one bathroom sink fixture (3 coats on that). Once you get your coverage amt correct, it goes quickly, with nary a drip, and you can do two coats within an hour, and rehang your fixtures the next day.

Highly recommend this product. I am going to paint my door hardware next!

Happy Painting, crafters and DIY'ers!

I absolutely love this spray paint! I have sprayed two chandeliers, a huge wall candle thing, a lamp, anything I can find that I don't like the finish on. I just bought 4 bottles yesterday because I am going to spray all the fixtures in our bathroom. We recently moved in to a "new" house and everything is gold! Not a fan of gold! I've already sprayed all of our doorknobs and one faucet with the satin nickel version. It saved us over $500 and you seriously can't tell it's been spray painted.

On the downside...it does get tough to spray about midway or more. I don't know what the deal on that is. I have found that if you turn the bottle upside down it will continue to spray until its gone. It's a little of a pain in the butt but in my opinion it is SO worth it! Pretty sure I will be a fan of this stuff for the rest of its life :)

I'm going to try to upload some pics of the stuff I've done. Of course I never take before and after. It doesn't even cross my mind until I'm halfway done!

Here are the uses I found: I painted all my gold doorknobs, all my light switch plates, a gold chandelier, and cabinet hardware.

The paint sticks really well on doorknobs, but you have to be careful about contact with metal objects, which will scratch the paint.

Wear gloves, because this paint is impossible to get off of your skin.

I purchased this at my local home improvement store for about half the price that they go on Amazon. In person, the color reads more as a black with multicolored flecks. It made me think disco, not oil rubbed bronze. I ended returning them and getting the same brand and type but in chestnut, which is also a metallic finish but a rich brown one, and it was perfect. I used it on a plastic garbage can, three picture frames, and a ceiling fan. To me, the chestnut is much more like oil rubbed bronze than this color is and I would recommend that instead. But if you like disco, or have a more modern home (I was going for a traditional look), this will probably work.

In terms of application, I didn't have any problems. As with any spray paint, it was strong smelling. I did my spraying outside and left items out overnight except the ceiling fan, which I rehung several hours after painting (dry to the touch but not fully cured). Because of the difficulty of the reinstall, the fixture did sustain some finger prints from holding it up with sweaty hands while trying to screw it back in, but I was able to carefully touch it up in place. If I could do it again, I would move the fixture into a sheltered outdoor area to dry for the full 24 hours.

I paid a premium price over other similar spray paint. I assumed that because it was a Rust-Oleum product, it had to be good. Turns out that an idiot must have designed this product. I seriously doubt that Rust-Oleum did any actual user testing. 1) It is very difficult to easily press the trigger compared to old style spray cans. 2) I could never hear the ball that was supposed to rattle when shaking the can. 3) You cannot stand it upside down (to unsettle the paint/ball). I didn't think that would be important but it was. 4) When the nozzle gets clogged, you are done, just throw it away, With the old style you could just replace the nozzle. Again I didn't think this was going to be important but it was.

Overall a very poor redesign of the good old spray can.

But Rust-Oleum refunded my purchase price with no problem. I was surprised that they were surprised by my comments. I had bought two cans at the time and eventually figured out that I could pry off the idiotic nozzle and replace it with a conventional nozzle (from another can). It turns out that the paint itself is quite good. I will buy more of this paint but will replace idiotic nozzle with a regular one.

Much like the previous 1-STAR rating reviewer, I purchased this paint and had to return it for an even exchange. I agree the chemical coposition of the paint is excellent...BUT, the trigger to spray the paint is an awfull non-ergonomic design.

I too firmly pulled the monstrosity of a spray button off, by firmly gripping and pulling it upward. Now soaking a used RUST-OLEUM Painters Touch 2X, wide spray tip button. I will replace it with this much more practicle, usefull spray button.

NOTE: the idea should be to make design as similar to an air brush type mechanisim as possible - not a monstrous Windex(TM) type trigger???) I LOVE Windex(TM), no disrespect1

I had a difficult time with the trigger too. I finally figured out that if you push up with your index finger toward the top it works. Simply squeezing in did not work well at all. The paint covered real good and didn't run.

I concur with the above reviews. The design is horrible. The nozzle clogs too easily and there's no way the design could have worked in the first place. It tries to convert vertical pressure into horizontal pressure through the use of soft plastic pivots. Like that's going to work!! I expect a refund out of Rust-oleum, but this shouldn't have been sold in the first place.

Honestly. How can a company even put out a product like this? The new spray cans for Rust-Oleum Universal are a shameful failure. Especially given the high price for the product. I have seen at least a dozen reviews on multiple websites. And, each says the exact same thing. Either the people at Rust-Oleum never tested the product. Or, they are willing to stand tall as an example of corporate stupidity.
Okay. I bought 4 cans of Rust-Oleum Universal (Hammer On Black). All four cans failed to spray after a few minutes. Each required disassembly and unclogging. The spray patterns were variable from "none" to "stringy" to totally "blob-like" or "blotchy". I have used Krylon Fusion. It works perfectly. In contrast, painting with Rust-Oleum is like trying use a roller brush while riding rabid bull into a burning barn. If anyone from Rust-Oleum reads this, I hope that they post an apology and issue refunds. Their new spray system is the best advertisment for Krylon Fusion that one could ever think of. In short, unless you enjoy paying lots of money for total junk (that will frustrate you until you're insane), just purchase the Krylon Fusion and stay FAR AWAY from the new Rust-Oleum spray paint in the fancy cans.
