I was refinishing a very old clawfoot tub, that my wife ruined the finish on, by trying to clean it with the wrong product. I spent quite a bit of time prepping and cleaning the surface, so I think I was okay there.
The product is an epoxy paint, very tough. It's the first time I worked with epoxy and I didn't wear a mask for the first coat. Just about knocked myself out, and felt in shock for a few hours after. Next coats I used a proper canister-type mask. It's really essential, even if you have a window and fan (like I had).
I was busy doing some other renovations, so I didn't get back to doing a second coat until a week or so later. The fumes from drying can still persist weeks after, so I think it's good to allow lots of time before using.
When I applied the second coat, I got a few small spots that bubbled. I don't know why, but the paint underneath the new coat lifted up also. From other reviews, this is an unsolvable problem. You can sand down, and apply a bit over, but the solvent in the paint just lifts up the edges and wrinkles them, so your spot becomes bigger and bigger.
I wasn't ready to give up, since the tub is probably about 300 pounds and I didn't have a way of removing it from the house. So I tried a number of primers to see if I could get a coat of something else on before I put more epoxy on top. They also lifted the paint. I talked to an autobody shop and they said they could sell me some epoxy primer, but we both suspected it would also have lifted the paint. The problem is in the solvent. If it can get under the coat of paint, it lifts.Read more ›
It has extensive instructions which involve scrubbing, sanding, and washing the porcelain with TSP. I followed the instructions to the letter except for removing the stainless drain connectors, which are stuck and I'm not strong enough to budge them even when I bought the right tool. So, I painted over them. The package declares that the epoxy surface is self-leveling, and it is so -- even with two coats using a soft lacquer brush the epoxy goes on a bit bubbly, but it becomes smooth and glossy as it dries.
This was three months ago. In the meantime, I resurfaced my counter, painted my cabinets, did other renovation work guaranteed to muck up a sink. I did in fact chip and scratch this epoxy surface, but here's the good news -- I bought another package of Rustoleum epoxy, mixed only four teaspoons worth, and patched the chips -- twice. The stuff keeps in sealed cans, so you have a long-term supply of small scratch repairs. The surrounding epoxy evidently "melts" to accept the patch. I gave the scratches two coats (dry sponging the surface to feather the edges a bit between coats) and you can't tell the scratch was ever there. Now that my construction is done, the sink holds up quite well to ordinary food preparation and dish washing without further mishap. It has not chipped or peeled over the porcelain, although it does give off a chemical odor for a couple of weeks if you fill the sink with hot water.
The surface is not as hard as the porcelain, of course, and you can't scour it. Nevertheless, it cleans pretty well with a soft scrubby and it looks nicer than the old sink.Read more ›
I searched for a very long time for a home kit that would not require the use of dangerous acid preparations. This was the only option I found. With two weeks having passed since I used the kit, the result looks great and I highly recommend it.
Expect several hours of surface prep involving an array of household cleaners, scrubbers etc. before you can do any painting. I suppose this is the price you pay to avoid the use of serious acids. When you do combine the two parts in the kit to create the paint, the resulting odor is seriously nasty like plastic cement. I did not use any kind of respirator; I just ran the bathroom fan. Unless you like to get very light headed, I suggest you buy or rent an appropriate respirator.
The paint is rather thin so apply in thin coats or else you will get drip build up on vertical surfaces. I didn't have much success with a roller so I used the bristle brush exclusively. It is true that once you apply the paint, don't try to rework any given area again if more than a minute or so has passed. And only brush in one direction. Follow the instructions for recoating. The second coat can be applied within the pot life of the paint (6 hours) but if you want a third coat--and it made ALL the difference in my case--you will either need a second kit or you must carefully set aside in sealed containers the proportional amount of each component to be mixed the next day.
The final coat must dry 72 hours before you can use any water on it.
Naturally, you will want to complement your work with all new caulking so be prepared to be an expert at that too.Read more ›

Don't waste your money. We tested it on a basement bathroom, did all the prep work exhaustively and it came out horrible. Pay a professional to get a decent finish. Read morePublished 8 hours ago by iPhoneguy89

I read most of the reviews and followed their suggestions. I believe the two biggest were the prep (I cleaned the tub 7 times and sanded 3), and using the 3" foam roller. Read morePublished 8 days ago by James Taylor IV
This was just okay. I used it to cover an old 60's or 70's marlite-type surround that was just awful. So I suppose just okay is better than the before version. Read morePublished 8 days ago by BuffaloDIYgirl
