Valspar Spray Paint Review – New Formula and Design

Valspar Paint Logo

Promises, promises, promises:

  • Quick dry formula
  • Even, consistent coverage
  • Minimum dripping and spitting
  • Less finger pressure

I am definitely not a do-it yourselfer.  My finger gets tired when I am only spraying the oil coating on to my pans. So when sceptic me is asked to try the new Valspar spray paint myself, I cautiously agreed. Hubby says he refuses to clean up any more of my messes.The winter weather outside is awful–dark, downcast, damp.  Better figure out something inside.   The can says this topcoat is suitable for wood, metal, most plastics, ceramics, paper-mache, etc., but I am thinking small.  Painting inside requires adequate ventilation so I have to work fast.  Open windows in freezing temperatures  bring in COLD.

Hubby is laughing already as I cover my workspace with the funnies. I set up the metal can I am decorating and begin to paint.

Mistake One:  Nothing comes out because I neglected to unlock the twist and lock system. Hubby intervenes and turns the top 90 degrees.

Mistake Two:  I spray hubby.  Fact is that the large spray finger pad really needs very little pressure. I try again. This time I get it right.

Time to Show-and-Tell my project.

I am no artist. I once jokingly stated a truth, “The only thing I can draw is my own breath.” Therefore, I expect disaster. Big surprise! Results are fantastic, so a fast retouch with no recoat dries smoothly, gives total coverage, a perfect finish, and no cleanup.

Valspar’s new improved paint formula really does make it easy. Its multi-surface flat, satin, and gloss paints in 47 colors plus clear sealers and primers work for me. Valspar easy-spray technology paint is available at independnt retailers and Lowe’s nationwide. For more information, go
