    hey hua the rustos are okay. they cover a bit but I can't find adaptors that work nicely with them.
    they do a good background though

    just try the keylime it's pretty good.

    but still for that price they want to be okay.

    I use know Kilz a lot on wood projects that I paint.

    I highly recommend it for the first coat.

    Haven't seen that yet, while since I've been in to Bunnings. Some nice colours there, wiggle, bright delight, terracotta, dandelion, lickedy. Expect it to be like $15

    I quite like a few of the colours ( Keylime is a winner) but to be honest you can buy two MTN hardcores for the price of 1 Rusto.

    I like to use it for the way you can hold it 18 inches away from the surface and the paint still hits the surface. Like proper paint when I started I used to have loads of paint on each piece - export, rusto, dulux,RAL belton, krylon, autoK ( highlights only) and one needed to master each brand for good results. now I'm just in the brand paint club and it takes away some skills

    I cannot find a household product that has a fitting nozzle though. thought I'd nutted one out with this cooking spray but nope!

    Could not agree more.

    Lots more innovation and creativity back when things weren't so specialised and tailor made for walls. Don't mean to get all "back in my day" on everyone but facts are facts. Only artist paint in the 80s was Buntlack and that stuff was rocking horse shit.

    Drunk; not scrolling through thread. Can I use Montana Sugar paint on steel or is it just some canvas shit? Just got a couple cans kicked down and I can't tell if it's good or not from the can.

    Nevermind, I figured out it's made by Ironlak and it's acrylic. I guess I'm doing a canvas or a buff wall.

    Oh shit dude it is awesome!!!!
    Like dulux with a belton valve.

    I used
    gogo blue
    true blue
    Dandelion yellow
    Hogs bristle

    sprays well and is great for outlines - all the things old dulux wasn't. also has that benefit that rusto has that it's paint and you can hold away from the walls and it will hit the wall instead of blowing away.

    even the stock tips do a nice highlight.

    expensive though jeez.

    $12.00 a can makes it a bit hardcore to use but buy one for outlines then shit silvers for fills and I'm painting out in the country
