Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike12 It stands out
Oil based paints are difficult to work with. Unlike water based paints the only fix is a sander. BUT done right and allowed proper dry/cure time the paint is dazzling and jumps out at you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by foxriverfox My Wallpaper nightmare
We bought a home that needed to have the old wallpaper removed. But, the paste would peal off the paint if not treated right. A oll-base paint is the best way to do this. This paint did a great job of sealing in the residue glue. We love the look of the final job

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeinPBC Great paint for people that aren't impatient.
Notice that the negative reviews are about the paint drying times. These are from inexperienced painters that didn't read the label. This paint is awesome if you let it dry. Take a vacation before handling this paint. The label says 7 days before even wiping and 24 hrs for re-coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bint Beautiful Cover for our Kitchen Walls
Great Paint!!! Used primer on the wall paneling and then Polar Bear for the ceiling; Almond color for kitchen cabinets and the walls and Oat Cake for the trim. The entire combination in my kitchen has been so pleasing!! It was applied 2 1/2 years ago and still looks fresh. I especially like to be able to wet paper towel clean the cabinets from my husband's coffee spills and it looks great!
Once again used the swatches on the walls for several days before deciding between several of the possibilities.
The painter really liked the completed work at the end.
This paint did require the purchase of the "mineral spirits" to do the clean-up but it is okay to have this. I would not want the paint to easily come off when wet wiped the paper towels were used to clean up the spills and splatters.
Thanks again for having so much to choose from for me and other buyers.
