I gave each one a can buddy and the two became inseparable throughout the experiment, or at least until I could mark the pears according to which paint they were bearing. I used Design Master (picked this one up at Micheal’s), Krylon, Rustoleum, and Valspar–that can exploded on me a long time ago.
Who would you give the first impression rose to? Ha! I am, personally, a new fan of the Design Master. It has the least amount of orangey/rosey glow to it. But, let’s look a little closer at them. To me, these four fall into two categories: brass/gold and bronze/copper. The brassiest gold was definitely the Design Master and Rustoleum as a close second.
The Krylon and Valspar look entirely too bronze for a “gold” application. Although, I obviously have used them since I have them. I know better now. That’s what this is all about. Also I would note, Krylon went on the worst. While all of the other finishes seemed smooth and virtually flawless–Krylon was having all sorts of issues. Could be human error–sure. But three out of four were near perfect. Hmm.
Which Gold Spray paint is best? I am giving Design Master the gold medal, and Rustoleum the silver–although I would definitely still recommend it. Valspar and Krylon get the bronze–appropriately. Are you surprised or maybe disagree? Do you have a favorite that we didn’t cover here? Spill.
