What is wrong with you people? I have been using the R.L. Paints for over three years and have had nothing but complete success with all the finishes! The key to these products is to remember that it is not your average paint product. R.L. Paint is a decorator finish (faux finish) and it does take extra effort and time to produce the desired effects. Reading the back of the can works wonders. Most problems seems to come from people overloading the paint, glaze, crackle, etc. If overloaded on the wall the product will not dry correctly and can "run" off the wall or not dry correctly. Do not take short-cuts or try to rush the job by overloading your roller cover with more. Another bit of advise; use the product for accenting rather than covering all walls. You will use less product and save time without wasting it. Take your time and you will be surprised by the results!
