+ one for magic paint . Also in Missouri it is a ok paint to use to satisfy DNR .I think it is Soy based .With the hardener it holds up well .I always used ruddy red rustolium with magic topcoat .

The blue one actually dulled out to a more of a satin finish...
and well was just not an acceptable finish.

Yes for the money you can't beat it and it's a quality finish...
if you use both the magic hardener and the magic reducer it will give you an amazing finish but I do shoot it out of a SATA HVLP as well... so maybe a small advantage but have used the HF pro HVLPs and have come very very close to the same finish.

But an FYI for anyone who decides to use the Magic brand paint...
Do Not use it out of the can without at least the hardener... otherwise, you will be there for days waiting and waiting for it to dry and well you might as well of used Rustoleum... and the finish will be just that...No Bueno por nada caca...

Not sure about the rest but everybody understands caca... Now if that were french. Funny in a way because I had Mexican for lunch today--was actually really good--"Mole Verde Puerco". Something I've not had before but I'll surely tray again...

Has anyone tried this new Rustoleum spray paint that is supposed to be paint and primer in one? It costs twice as much so, you're not saving anything, but time.

I got a can for the hell of it to paint my railings when it gets a little warmer outside. I have raw steel and previously painted surfaces so, we'll see.

Dave Save your self some time and headache... return the can. get you some regular rustyrailing paint... get you a gallon of Ospho treat the railings with the Ospho and let it dry wipe it down and then pain it, it will far outlast the paint/primer gimmick can spray... it works about as good as sandpaper for toilet paper...

but when it comes to Ospho don't buy that hardware store mix with water crap either it's just that crap... get the real stuff it's a bit pricy compared to a few years back... but worth every penny you spend on it...

I don't know if smaller bottles of Ospho are sold... I only buy it by the gallon and use it on any and everything metal I'm going to paint, that doesn't require special catalyst in the paint that would react against it...
meaning certain show car paints...

hope this is useful information for ya...

I've used a couple cans of the hammered finish all in one paint on some horseshoe projects. It covers well and dries pretty quick. I haven't had the stuff out in the elements to see how it holds up over time though.
