Did what it said on the tin

Bought last summer and only just got around to painting the fence. Slightly lighter colour than I thought it would be but looks lovely. I think people have given it low star ratings as it’s not think paint it’s more of a stain, you can still see the grain. But once it’s dry it looks beautiful. I would buy it again. I used a spray gun and a brush.
Great product and coverage

Bought this along with the Ronseal fence sprayer. Had great coverage over what was once a dark red fence. Lovely colour, would recommend.
Why are people complaining?

I’ve used 25 litres and need 5 more to finish. I’m delighted with the end result but you do have to persevere. It does say on the tin it needs 3 coats so expect to use 3 coats. I was stopped so many times by people admiring the finish and asking where they could buy the paint
Use another brand/paint if you can

Probably the worst paint I’ve used in long time. After stirring for what seemed like an eternity, the paint still possessed an uncanny resemblance to curds and whey which is never a good sign, especially when it was made only a few months ago.
Trying to not judge a book by its cover, I pressed on and painted the first coat...It is at this stage the paint gives you a false sense of security. Minus the globs/watery-nature, the coverage was quite good and it went on really easily. You think it’s looking great... and then it dries. I’m currently on the third coat and I reckon 4 will give the opaque finish I’m after rather than the watery streaky look I’ve currently got.
Safe to say this paint seems to be a bit of a lucky dip.. you may be lucky and get a good tin or you may not.
If you can buy a better paint, do that as you’ll save yourself time and energy that way. If you’re happy to do multiple coats, then go for it!
Oh and the colour is lighter than the colour depicted on the tin... still nice though
Great choice for people who love grey!

The reviews nearly put me off from this paint but I gave it a go and I’m glad I did. Love the colour! It’s variety shade of grey. Sometimes silver, sometimes light grey or sometimes grey with a bit of purple tint depends on the light. The consistency is like jelly. I put it on both treated fences and also the old one with dark oak colour. Good coverage but need at least 2 coats and might be 3 for darker fence. Make sure you put loads of paint on your brush to get a thick coat. I used 4.5 tub of 5 L. to paint 11 panels plus a private fence at the back with 2 coats.
PS. I also painted the post with Dulux Weathershield in Pale Slate.
