If you love to upcycle or recycle, you know the value of spray paint! It can transform yard-sale finds into new treasures for your home economically and in almost no time flat. That’s why today I want to share with you Krylon ColorMaster Spray Paint!
Here’s how it’s described on the website:
ColorMaster’s formulation provides an expanded recoat window of four hours, not just one. That allows time for additional coats, achieving a smooth, flawless finish that makes color look its best. ColorMaster also offers:Provides premium coverage and brilliant color; EZ Touch 360 Dial spray tip delivers precise application and less overspray; Perfect for indoor and outdoor projects; Dries in 10 minutes or less.
It’s listed on the can that it will work on:
Of course, I like to try things out myself. So I cracked open a can and gave it a whirl.
Here you see that there is a white tip that actually channels the spray into a wide fan. You can reposition it horizontally, vertically or at an angle, depending on what you need. It’s designed to cause less overspray, and MAN, it works great!
Here’s how you can position it- the directions are on the can.
The flat spray means that I could hold this peg in my hand and get a full coverage spray without getting it on my fingers. It’s also helpful in laying down smooth, even coats of paint.
I have to mention that the spray button itself is also pretty cool. As you may or may not know, I suffer from hand fatigue and usually 10 minutes of spray painting causes me pain and I have to stop. I worked for 15 minutes using the EZ Touch without pain. Another plus- the cap comes off just by pinching and pulling it. No rooting around for a screwdriver to pry off the cap! WHEE! These may be little things to some, but to those of us with hand issues, it’s a real benefit. Thank you, Krylon!
So I tested the paint using three objects- an MDF home decor item (the key- bought on 75% off clearance- woot!), a galvanized tin pail, a fabric-covered cork board, and a wicker planter basket.
Note: this is an aerosol product and has precautions. Please follow common sense about inhalation dangers and use of proper ventilation.
Since it was raining, it took slightly longer than 10 minutes listed on the can. But really, by the time I got one coat on everything I could go back and put the second coats on.
By the end of the afternoon, I had this:
I love how the glossy paint even took to the wicker- it took about 3 light coats since the surface was not primed.
Right now, Krylon ColorMaster spray paint is only available at Wal-Mart Stores (click here to find a store near you.) But I hear that it will be at other retailers soon. If you want it, ask for it! I only got Cherry Red Gloss to work with and review, but there are 75 colors for YOU to pick from!
I can’t comment on price at this time, but I do think it’s a good solid product- and I’m looking forward to some great DIYs!
