I have stopped using that stuff for a while now. Its kind of a crap shoot. Sometimes its good, most of the time there is some sort of problem. I get dull, cracking, orange peel, and sometimes the finish is still soft after letting it sit for a few weeks. And before someone says well did you do … I have been using spray paint for years, so I know how to properly use it. It seams to be very very sensitive to temperature and humidity. It also does not like to build up fast. Put it on too thick an the stuff just never cures.

I like to use automotive build up primer that is black and then spray with regular gloss black. Works EVERY time and it is very consistent. I personally like krylons products.
