The paint applied very well and covered in most cases in one coat, depending on exactly how perfect you want the surface to be, you may wish to add a second coat – The paint dried well and seemed to erase out any heavy brush strokes. The paint was touch dry in around 2 hours (says 1-2 on the tin).

We tested the smooth black along with the gold options and together they paired perfectly, the black was a very gloss / shiny finish.
