I have been using these products for many years now, and I have applied most of them in my home as well as friends and relatives. Just like any product, their are bound to be some inconsistencies and misunderstandings. These paints are not like a traditional paint, and take a little more time and effort. If you don't read the instructions for the type of paint you have selected, or take the time to call the 800 number found on the can to get furtrher help with your project, you may as well not bother.
Some paints require two people to complete the technique, and some are very detailed as far as the instructions. The end result has never been close to disastrous, but I did have some trial and error situations. All in all, the paint is beautiful and I am a happy consumer. I have found that the people at the stores have given me some very bad information with these products, and when I did call the 800 number they were nothing but helpful and very knowledgeable. Hope you have fun with this paint.
