RustOleum Countertop Paint

Has anyone heard of or used this or know anybody that has? It is a brand new product and as I do not like my off white boring countertops and cannot replace them right now, I was thinking about giving this a go!!

I asked the guy at Lowe's about it but......

Lowe's don't know!

He had not used it, said he "heard" it was good, but I would like a little more info than that before I embark on this little adventure!

The only drawback to me is that it comes in 16 colors, and the "swatches" are little color squares on the box top and you pick the one you want and they tint the paint. I need a BIGGER swatch than that!

However, being the adventuresome spirit I am....what's the worse thing that could happen? I go through all the trouble to paint the countertops and hate it!! Hmmmm, seems like I have been here before, only with the canvas being my front door!!

If you have any info on this product, please let me know!

Thanks and have a great week!

  2. L.C., let me know how that works out for you. My countertops are horrible, but I just don't want to go thru the expense or mess replacing them right now, plus I bet I could use that in the Casita De Trash!

  3. I havn't heard of this particular product, but so many bloggers have shown pictures of their countertops that they've successfully painted, so it seems that it can be done with great success. I can't wait to hear what you find out. Hugs, Marty

  4. I would sure give it a go. Did you see the demo here? It takes three days to dry. Maybe you could go to a motel and have a mini vacation..

  5. Hello,
    Is your front door the average size? We make ours 16 in. long. You thought 26 in. Now you don't want it to be the whole length of the door. Go look at ours again and let me know.

  6. I've never used it but heard about it on Trading Spaces when it first came out. They totally re-laminated an ugly countertop and it was gorgeous! I'd give it a try if I didn't like my existing countertop... what have you got to lose? ;)

  8. I never knew they made paint for counter tops. Would love to see it when it is done. As far as the Welcome you could check out in our Etsy store. Thanks The Twins.

  9. 2 entries for you Lou Cinda!!!! Thanks for admiring my handy work, I considered canceling the giveaway, lol- Just kidding! Thank you for becoming a follower :o)

    Now about this counter top paint.... I just saw a link for painting countertops at The Nesters site but she didn't use the paint you're talking about. What I would do is take that little square to the guy at the counter and get him to make a pint of plain old paint in that shade and paint a big board with it. Then you'll have a super huge swatch!!

    okay, hope that helps!!

  11. I am in the middle of using the paint, not for a countertop though, but for a laminated bookshelf that is installed on the wall. It's a glue like base paint, that has a really powerful odor.

    The people at Home Depot told me that not all colors come out. I am using the Ivory color and it did come out well. I have to admit that I am not convinced with the product. Applying it to corners was tricky and after waiting five days for it to dry, instead of the three that were given by the manufacturer the paint did scratch, fairly easily.

    I still have not decided if I will apply the product to the actual bookshelves for I only used it in the backdrop of the furniture. Maybe for a countertop with little if not few edges it could work, but don't think that it's scratch resistant.

  12. Thank you for letting me know this! I have been apprehensive about it, because it IS so new! And if you have to let it cure for 3-5 days, being that it is my kitchen, that will be difficult! PLUS I have cats! I can just see one hopping up on the counter and it still being wet!!

    Let me know how yours turns out if you do more!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  13. Hi,

    I just finished using this paint on my whole counter about 2hrs ago. The odor is pretty strong. Today was the second and final coat, I put the first coat on yesterday and wanted to wait 24hrs for the second. I have to admit, it is kind of difficult to work with because of it's glue like consistancy. You should make sure you work kind of quickly because as the paint starts to dry, it gets more sticky and you start to see your roller marks. I did the taupe and I really like the look it gave my kitchen. I also painted (latex) the walls in my kitchen and will wait for the counter to cure before I do a backsplash. Don't get me wrong, it is a great look if you can't afford a new counter. I'm just a perfectionist when it comes to things like this! I do think it's worth it. Good luck with your project!

    Take care,
    Kim

  14. Kim: Thank you for the update! I tried to link to you but it wouldn't let me! Let me know if you post photos of your countertops! I ALMOST bought the paint last weekend and chickened out again!!

  15. We used the paint today on our kitchen counter. My husband rolled and I used a brush for the edges and corners. It does take a little getting used to, it dries quickly. I bought it off the paint clearance shelf in the ivory color and really like it. The smell is really strong though. I can see some of the brush marks on the edge and on the backsplash behind the faucet so if I might redo it next weekend in a dark color. It was a good learning experience, I like the way it looks and would definitely recommend it. I don't prepare my food on a bare counter, I always use a cutting board, so I hope I don't have any issues w/scratches, we'll see. But for $10 (clearance price) it was definitely worth it.

  16. I used this product after reviewing what info i could find on it and i was sorely disappointed. I followed the directions and it was really easy to apply, its just that air bubbles werent mentioned and they stayed...the texture of the air bubbles stays as well. It nicks very easily, i have children and they cheat and dont use chopping boards at times. It also cannot take the heat from a microwaved mug, i found the ring permanently ingrained on my new countertop. Also, things like food bags, like bread and such, the prints on the bags transfer into the countertop and u have to let bleach soak for quite a while to remove it. I was sooo disappointed....but the rest of the kitchen came out great, now i am planning on just recovering the laminate with another laminate sheet.

  17. LOU CINDA! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PAINT! I'M SOOOOO DISAPPOINTED WITH THE RESULTS! THIS IS A FOLLOW UP FROM A COMMENT I POSTED ON JUNE 5TH.

    THIS COUNTERTOP PAINT HAS NOT HELD UP TO EVERYDAY WEAR AT ALL!! THERE ARE NUMEROUS NICKS WHERE THE COLOR OF MY OLD COUNTER IS COMING THROUGH (LIGHT GRAY), SCRATCHES (I ALWAYS USE A CUTTING BOARD), PERMANENT DOTS FROM WHERE THE LITTLE PADS UNDER THE COFFEE POT SAT, RINGS FROM WHERE A CUP OR GLASS WAS SET WITH MOISTURE, MARKS FROM A BREAD BAG....I'M SO SAD! I BOUGHT TILE TO TILE A BACKSPLASH AFTER I FINISHED THE COUNTER BUT, GOOD THING I DIDN'T START, BECAUSE NOW I'M GOING TO HAVE TO TRY OTHER OPTIONS TO EITHER REPAIR OR REPLACE THIS COUNTER. I KNOW I COULD PROBABLY TOUCH IT UP WITH THE EXTRA PAINT I HAVE LEFT BUT, THEN I HAVE TO WAIT THREE DAYS AGAIN FOR A GOOD CURE. THAT DOESN'T WORK WELL WITH A FAMILY OF 5!

    THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THIS PAINT WAS TO TRY AND SAVE MONEY! INSTEAD, IT'S GOING TO COST ME MORE! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PRODUCT!!

    SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY A GOOD QUALITY MATERIAL TO REPLACE YOUR COUNTERTOPS, THAT WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

    TAKE CARE,
    KIM :O) HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

  18. I know this is an older post but I was watching the early show this morning and they now have a product to paint your countertops like granite. I have been to there site, it seems like it might be worth a try. I am going to try it in my bathrooom before I tackle the whole kitchen. The website is gianigranite.com, good luck.

  20. We just used Rustoleum's countertop paint in the cobblestone color for a bathroom laminate countertop. While this color looks so much better than the original bubblegum pink color, we are having issues with air bubbles and streaking, also parts that look shiny and parts that look less shiny. I'm thinking of giving it a light sanding, and then going over the whole thing with a polyurethane sealer.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've been reading all your comments, and have been thinking about trying to refinish my own laminate countertop. From what I read, you need to seal this finish with several coats of an Epoxy, which greatly reduces scratching.

  22. I used this in my kitchen in march 2009, it is now october. Yes, it dries quickly, so do one big coat then don not roll back over it. I have cats that jump on the counter, the only scratches I have are from those. I am actually going to redo the countertop a darker color as I chose a light color and now don't like it.
    It seems to take about a week to completely "cure"
    however, since my old counters were baby blue, anything is better than the old...

  23. I just finished painting the Rust-Oleum counter top paint in both my bathrooms. I waited about 4 days to do the other one. So far it looks great. I tried to sand some uneven areas and it did sand well. The color did not show through. I also put 4 coats on( make sure you let each coat dry before you apply another one.)

  24. Hello, I work at Home Depot were we carry this product and have personally used it on my home. It's the greatest thing since sliced bread! I painted a base color then came back and spounged another color on top to look like granite! It's beautiful!

  25. I have been painting countertops for over 30 years following many of the same steps mentioned in the directions suggested by Rustoleum. The best advice I can give to anyone painting countertops is to pay attention to the prep work and do not apply the layers to heavy, think of building the layers like you do nail polish. I have done many faux finishes, stenciling and hand artwork on countertops to personalize them to my clients decor. It is a long process allowing for layers to cure but it is worth ever minute you have to wait. The results are beautiful and you end up with a very unique look. I am going to try the Rustoleum product and will let you know.

  27. Rustoleum countertop paint is the worst product I have ever used. I had the same problems as "anonymous" of 8/14/09 had-bubbling, streaking, parts glossy, parts flat. Rustoleum reps said to sand it all down & start over. I sanded for 12 hours (arms are like over-cooked noodles!), repainted AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS! Horrible product.

  28. I JUST USED RUSTOLEUM COUNTER PAINT, AND LOVE IT SO FAR. BLACK BASE AND THEN SPONGE ACORN AND TERRA COTTA ON THAT. WILL NOT HEAVILY WORK ON IT, JUST TO KEEP IT LIKE NEW. FOR THE BEAUTY OF IT, IT IS WELL WORTH USING A GLASS CUTTING BOARD.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT LONG TERM, BUT IT LOOKS GREAT. IT PROBABLY COULD SCRATCH. BE CAREFUL. IT WENT ON GOOD, AND THEN YOU LET DRY 3 DAYS BEFORE APPLYING THE ACORN AND TERRA COTTA SPONGE. USED SEA SPONGE ROLLER. CUT IN HALF AND BRUSHED EACH COLOR ON EACH ROLLER. FIRST ROLLED TERRA COTTA, AND THEN BRUSHED ACORN ON AND ROLLED THAT LIGHTLEY OVER IT. DON'T OVERLOAD THE ROLLER, IT WILL BLUR.

  30. It appears there are two different Rustoleum products being mentioned here. One for faux finish and one for solid color. I ordered paint samples for the solid color product direct on the Rustoleum website since I too didn't like the tiny pictures shown on the box. They allow up to 4 color samples, took about one week to get them. I decided on my color (Meadow) and just finished applying the solid color product with disastrous results. The first 2 coats went on great (I was covering a dark emerald marble formica). I used thin coats of paint. I ran out of paint, so had to buy another can for the 3 (and hopefully last) coat. If you can't apply the next coat within 1 hour of the last coat, the directions say to wait at least 12 hours ... I did, it was closer to 24 hours. About 15 minutes after applying the thin third coat, it bubbled, cracked and lines!!!! I did find some assistance on how to fix my disaster at

    Contrary to paint instructions when it says to only dilute with Xylene, this guy recommends diluting with 1 oz. of water for a smooth final fish. Good Luck!

  31. My kitchen is French, so I went over my older dark blue countertops with Black Rustoleum for counter-tops...about an hour ago...it does have a very potent smell so I put on all the ceiling fans and put out a dish of vanilla...seems to help a bit...anyways...so far so good...covers well, but you do have to work fast! I dusted on copper dust and then will add a second coat tomorrow and more dust to give it some depth...can you go over the product with polyurethene after the 3 days required for drying???...thanks and happy painting!

  32. Hey - I'm a busy mom of a 2 & 8 year old and have desperately wanted new countertops for the 12 years I've been married. The mauve just had to go!!! I delve into painting last weekend. I've just finished my Rustoleum countertop paint adventure. #1 the smell is horrid (especially with kids in the house). I was to the point of extreme nausea after the first day. Went and bought extra window fans to help with the smell. I used the black as a base (2 coats) and painted with foam roller. There's no way a solid color would look good because there were lots of streaks and light/dark areas that did not appear smooth after the 2nd coat (and I'm picky). I had to put a marble finish on it. I sponged on earth and wheat colors and then the next morning sponged black overtop of those two colors which achieved the perfect black marble look. I LOVE the new look, but the smell is still lingering after 4 days and I'm wondering if I should seal with polyurethane for a more durable finish. Would love to post a photo of my before and after, but I'm not sure if I can do that on here. Just saw the Giani set and wished I would have tried it instead and maybe the fumes wouldn't have been so strong!

  33. I wish I could respond directly to you Annonymous! lol I have never used this product yet, I have gotten such mixed reviews from this product I have been undecided! What I have done, however, is spray paint the smallest section of my countertop. Yes, spray paint! I took that little section of countertop completely out of the kitchen and spray painted it, then put it back in to use it and see how it held up! It has done beautifully...so far! I have had it on there since May. SO, I am fixing to paint the rest of the countertops...I will post how it all turns out! Thank you for your sweet comment!

  34. Hey everyone,
    My name is Steve and I'm a contractor that does painting, and tile work.I was interested in seeing how the rustoleum countertop paint held up, because I have tried other countertop systems (for painting countertops) in the past, and had less than satifactory results. I finally started using urethanes and polyurethanes to seal all finishes. Because I refinish countertops for customers I needed something that sealed the finish hard, without yellowing or streaking. I started using Rexthane from Sherwin Williams, and it works beautifully. Hard and durable.. I even used it on a countertop for a relative and 2 and a half years later it is doing great!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hey everyone,
    Steve again.. I wanted to say that the other systems I used before I started adding the sealer had similar problems to what some of you mentioned. Bubbling, peeling, and inability to withstand any normal wear and tear. The stuff I use (the sealer, not the paint) however has its downside, it smells terrible (but no worse than countertop paint itself) and is expensive. My contractors price is around $85 a gallon. It could be something you split the cost of with a friend so they can use some of it too.. one gallon goes a long way. Good points are, you can make whatever look you like and seal it up, no bubbles, no peeling, and believe me it took some trial and error to get there. Also its rock hard and clear, it doesn't yellow like some chemical based urethanes (like the type you might use over wood) although they do dry relatively hard. Simply put, how you seal it is what makes this work or not work. Hope this helps.. Good luck everyone!!
    Steve

  36. Hi,I've got a question that I hope has an easy answer. My counter top is black and I'm thinking my best results would be using a sponge rather than trying to cover the whole thing, anybody been there done that?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Steve, Do you have any other suggestions for a sealant that might work and be cheaper? What are your thoughts on epoxy or poly?

  38. I just did the Rustoleum countertop paint and unfortunately had the same issues with bubbling and streaking. To mitigate the problem I got 4 different colors of Folk Art acrylic paint from Walmart and a sea sponge and did the faux granite look. It looks great and I'm just waiting for it to cure before doing a clear coat. The Rustoleum became, in essence, an extremely expensive primer so buyer beware.

  39. Ok, I just read everyone's comments and wow now I am too scared to even start this countertop project. I bought the paint yesterday from Lowe's and now I am backing out for sure to paint. The thing I found out from searching is the paint will not take heat well. So my $40.00 dollars was wasted. Guess I could use it elsewhere??

    ReplyDelete
  40. I am thinking of redoing my counter, Lowe's now carries a newer Rust-Oleum product and from the web site I was impressed. Lowe's also has samples. It is $249. I typed in www.rustoleum countertop transformatons and they even help you measure the area your doing. Thanks for all the info on the paint, I am not sure if I would use this.

  41. I have painted my Kitchen counter tops with great success. I used a paint technique with gloss paint and blended it to look like granite. I got the idea from a Debbie Travis book I had. The key to scrubbable, durable countertops was simply a triple coat of polyurethane. It can do what no paint can. Sometimes the polyurethane will take on a very slight yellow tint but it only enhanced the look.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I painted my countertop with cobblestone rustoleum color and after 5 days of drying with no objects on it it still nicks and marks VERY easily within 5 or 10 minutes of a lightweight object resting on it. WEIRD!
    I will definitely try and coat it with a sealant, polyurethane or so - depends on price.
    It looks great, if it just doesn't get those marks and nicks.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sometimes when paint cans say you can paint right on top of surfaces ... they are lying. FIRST try a bonding primer (after you have cleaned the countertops throughly) for non-pourous surfaces. This will allow the paint to set to the countertop. Once the bonding primer dries it is time to put the countertop paint. Use a foam roller and a foam brush to do this, if you use a bristled brush, you will see the bristle marks in the paint. Once these steps are done you will HAVE to seal with a polyurethane sealant (non-yellowing of course). Doing all these steps will insure your countertops not to scratch AS EASILY as some of you are describing.

    Now, to take the easy way out of buying a new countertop you will have to put some hard work and elbow grease into it. So, don't skimp on the instructions, do it right the first time and you should be pleased with the results.

  44. We had great success using the Rustoleum countertop paint to refinish our countertops. The old countertops we damaged and over 50 years old. We spent much time and attention to the prep work. We did a large amount of sanding and washing with TSP cleaning solution. We noticed, as many other posts, the bubbles - a way to fix them is to use a small flexible sponge brush and LIGHTLY brush over the rolled area as you go along and it will disolve the small bubbles and you will not see streaks. It takes a lot of patients and good lighting but the results are great for a low cost. Of course you can't expect perfection but for a low cost quick fix it made a world of difference.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I JUST used this stuff yesterday, and after speaking with a representative on the phone about the streaks and bubbles, they recommended sanding after 24 hours, waiting 24 hours (sanding re-opens the paint, so it needs to cure a little again) and then doing another layer.

    She said that if you roll too thickly, or too quickly, you will start to see those bubbles and things. Because the paint dries so fast, you have to work quickly, without re-rolling over painted areas. Difficult!! But it is possible.

    I asked about a sealer, and she said that the Rustoleum paint contains an antimicrobial agent, so a sealer is inadvisable. But after reading the comments here, I think I will do it anyway. We will see!

    Either way, my counters look much better already. The smell was God awful, but worth it so far.

    ReplyDelete
  46. we just used this product as well. the smell is as stated, TERRIBLE. we were afraid to fall asleep, for fear we wouldn't wake up! so we had to leave the house and let it dry and air out. the bubbles came up the first time, so we lightly sanded it and re-coated. we saw awful cracks and areas so dried out. it looks AWFUL. we thought we'd give it a try for only $20... now we will have to get new counter tops! when they say it's too good to be true, it sure is. rustoleum needs to review this product and do a little re wording on their packaging. we give it a THUMBS DOWN. hope this helps anyone else out there.

  47. My Aunt Priscilla used that before she went to Mexico last year. She even asked me to help her on painting her countertop.

  48. This is a huge improvement, for those of us with really nasty counters to begin with (think faux butcher block circa 1978). I am really fickle - I went with Meadow, disliked it, and then used Rosemary. Now I am switching to Granite. I will sand and clean before I paint again. Use a foam roller and go slowly. Don't do the edges with a brush - use a foam brush and dab it on lightly (those foam pads on a stick). Then get your roller as close to the edge as you can. The bubbles seem to happen only at first, for some reason. I solved this by brushing some onto a cardboard box before painting the counters. The smell is bad but before you even open the can, open your windows wide and get the fans going. Try to get a cross-breeze. I had the smell out after about 4 hours. I agree with the person who said that the key is the sealant. I plan to do 3-5 coats of polyurethane. I tried shellac; do not bother! Now I get to sand that off before I paint on my granite....

  50. I just finished painting the Rust-Oleum counter top paint in my kitchen. So far it looks great. I also put 4 coats on( make sure you let each coat dry before you apply another one.)

    It is very important to let the paint dry completely before applyoing the next coat. Yes this does mean 5 days in between each coat, but the results are well worth it!

  51. I realize this post is really old, but it did help me make up my mind! I'm getting the satin black tomorrow and will paint before the weekend. I'll take pictures along "the way" and let you know!

  52. Fortunately, I had a large piece of Formica left over from my original counter to practice on. I used the Rust-Oleum product that is specifically for counter tops. I have run into the same problems with the air bubbles. I've tried numerous rollers/brushes and have found that the air bubbles are unavoidable. I now have about six samples and none of them are acceptable. And after reading about the scratch problems, I'm ready to toss the paint. I am so glad that I did not attempt it on my counter as I would be in a disastrous mess right now. I strongly recommend not to use this paint.

    ReplyDelete
  53. It's not that great of a product. Scratches/nicks easily. Our coffee maker had been slowly leaving water underneath it and totally left a stain. I used this product because I needed to change the color of my counters, but didn't want to get new countertops until we decide to redo the whole kitchen. I just wanted something to hold me over which it has. As for the air bubble thing when applying, DO NOT USE the suggested roller they say. A foam roller is the worst thing. I switched to a regular roller nap and did not get air bubbles with this. You do need to work fast. Have a little brush in one hand for corners and such and the roller in the other hand. I originally put this product on a couple years ago and have repainted this week and I was definitely better at it this time. Overall, I would NOT recommend this product. You could probably get better results from a different kind of paint and prime then poly. Also, as to the curing it is very dry very fast so if a kitty did jump on it it's no biggie, but the 3 days is for curing, not drying.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I sure wish I would have found all these helpful comments before I used Rustoleum Countertop Coatings last night. I read the instructions and did everything carefully so the surface was perfect before starting. Little did I realize that my 6" high density foam roller was going to put air bubbles all throughout the painted surface. I went back over it to smooth out the bubbles...big mistake. Now I have cross-hatch paint roller marks all over the counter. The fumes are very powerful so you'll want to work quickly and be able to be out of the house while it airs out. Not easily done in February. I will let it sit a week or two and then sand it down and try a second coat. How disappointing that this product has made a mess of what were OK hunter green countertops. Now they are a big mess that I've got to figure out how to fix. Applying this finish is not as easy as it looks--think twice before delving into this project.

  55. Rust Oleum has a new product on the market that may give pretty great results. This product is similar to other brands of countertop refinishers on the market.

  56. Just got done using this product on my countertops and it came out wonderful. I did a two color scheme (black and sandstone) using a sponge and my countertops look like they're made of granite. I did this to hide nicks and scratches which are bound to happen. I must say, they came out looking really nice for $45!!

  59. I have reviewed many sites about painting countertops and been scared out of it. There is a site that advertises a heavy contact paper for countertops. It is scratch resistant and heat resistant up to 120 degrees(I think). Shouldn't cut on it or put pan directly on it. Has anyone ever used this product? Thanks

  63. Some great benefits of Employing a Polyurethane foam Bed

    For many who are seeking a fresh bed, it could be challenging to produce a selection relating to which type to get. All things considered, its not all air mattresses are manufactured the same, and several are usually significantly increased inside top quality as compared to other folks. Just about the most well-known alternatives recently could be the polyurethane foam bed. These kind of air mattresses come along with significant amounts of rewards, a few of which usually many individuals basically don't get. So long as you use a robust thought at the time of just what these kinds of rewards are usually, nonetheless, it is possible to determine if this sort of bed will be right for an individual.

  71. I have read all comments and researched everywhere known to man. I have just painted a coat of black Rustoleum Countertop paint. Yes, we have streaks and bubbles, but will do a second coat tomorrow. I also plan to use a faux sponge to add grey and white. I will seal with several coats of polycrylic. I called Rustoleum and they said the only reason a top coat is not recommended is because it will void the anti-microbal top coat. They suggested using a polycrylic (should not cause yellowing) or polyeurethene top coat. We will see how it goes. Sealing them is a must from what I have read so far!

  73. I too have just finished my countertops with the black satin. they are beautiful and I love them but don't think you will be able to do this in a weekend. I have had the troubles everyone else has had but I am stubborn and persistant in my battle. I have put on 3 coats, waiting 5 days between the 2nd and 3rd coats and I did a lot of sanding in-between each coat. I know I definately am going to put on a sealer. I honestly think it's the only way to keep that "just painted" look. I am trying to decide if i'm going to use polyeurathane or Envirotex Lite??? I have already bought the Envirotex but am intimidated by it. I think it will give it a more durable seal seing how restaurants use it and 1 coat is equal to 50 coats of varnish, however, I have used polyeurathane many times and am familiar with the application process. Wish I could get some immediate answers to this :/

  74. Hi Everyone,
    I followed this blog from April 2009 to Nov 19 2012 after spending two days (at least 36 hours) of research on how to give my floors a make-over with an Epoxy in Feb. 2015.
    Everything from counter-tops-floors and tiles need to be refinished or replaced, and there isnt that kind of money to go around. I have to plan for perfection! I don’t want to do all that work, then have a disaster on my hands.

    Personally, I would not use this product as directed, unless you plan to only use your Kitchen Countertops as a display for your creative talents. Chips or scratches from a Epoxy resin will add to the poison we eat on a regular basis.

    I have also come to the conclusion that this is not a winter or summer project – but needs to be a spring or fall project because professional training videos say that it must be between 60 & 65 degrees for the material to cure properly!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Steve who posted in Sept 2010 had the best advice for the type of product to finish your Rustoleum Masterpiece, and I will repost his advice for all to see. READ IT. My extra two-cents: If you still plan to use a Hardware Store System like Rustoleum - after following the directions for an absolutely clean canvas…use a correct paint for your type of counter-top as a sealer – before using Rustoleum’s base coat. After watching how the professionals used the Epoxy for floors…the Bubbles can be popped by using a “Propane Torch” as long as you keep the Torch at least 2 feet or more away from your work (including any open cans of product etc.)
    I don’t care where you are completing your project, just remember that lots of ventilation is Key. These Epoxy Fumes are very explosive! Personally, after quickly applying any of the multiple coats, I would only try a Hair Blow Dryer to pop bubbles on a counter-top. Don’t use it to try and dry the counter-top!
    The hair-dryer might also help level the streaks. The streaks are caused because the product’s active agent makes it dry to the touch very quickly.
    Don’t expect a perfect finish unless using a real commercial grade Epoxy for a glass finish!
    Thanks Steve!

    Hey everyone,
    My name is Steve and I'm a contractor that does painting, and tile work.I was interested in seeing how the rustoleum countertop paint held up, because I have tried other countertop systems (for painting countertops) in the past, and had less than satifactory results. I finally started using urethanes and polyurethanes to seal all finishes. Because I refinish countertops for customers I needed something that sealed the finish hard, without yellowing or streaking. I started using Rexthane from Sherwin Williams, and it works beautifully. Hard and durable.. I even used it on a countertop for a relative and 2 and a half years later it is doing great!

    Hey everyone,
    Steve again.. I wanted to say that the other systems I used before I started adding the sealer had similar problems to what some of you mentioned. Bubbling, peeling, and inability to withstand any normal wear and tear. The stuff I use (the sealer, not the paint) however has its downside, it smells terrible (but no worse than countertop paint itself) and is expensive. My contractors price is around $85 a gallon. It could be something you split the cost of with a friend so they can use some of it too.. one gallon goes a long way. Good points are, you can make whatever look you like and seal it up, no bubbles, no peeling, and believe me it took some trial and error to get there. Also its rock hard and clear, it doesn't yellow like some chemical based urethanes (like the type you might use over wood) although they do dry relatively hard. Simply put, how you seal it is what makes this work or not work. Hope this helps.. Good luck everyone!!
    Steve
