Since it's put on in very thin layers and dries quickly, you don't have to worry about dripping, unless you are too heavy-handed. I just did a distressed-look job on a bookcase, using spray paint from the Laura Ashley Home Colour Collection. No brush marks, no drips, each layer was dry in 15 minutes or so (it was not a humid day), and it turned out great. I got it in the paint department at Lowe's. Rust-o-leum has a line of designer colors for home use also.
