BEHR® Oil-Base Satin Enamel is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely horrible Professional painter here. I usually use Rustoleum oil based paints or Sherwin Williams. I was in an area to do a job and ran out of my usual paints and my only option was a Home Depot with this Behr “paint” (and I use that term loosely as to not offend other paint manufacturers). This paint is horrible. The smell is 10 times worse than any oil paint I have ever used. It literally will burn your eyes like you’ve been swimming in a pool that is over chlorinated. It’s also extremely runny and hard to control because it’s so thin. And I’m on day 6 and the homeowner I did the job for says it’s still not dry. Now I have to spend huge amounts of money to remove this crap paint and do the job all over again with proper paint. Only saving grace is because it has never dried I never got to put a second coat on. Thanks for ruining this job and my reputation with my customer. If you can’t make a proper oil based paint then don’t offer one.
