This patio paint work better than anything else ever. I bought a beautiful wrought iron free standing patio umbrella but hated the color. So, I used this paint to paint a umbrella stand for around the pool. It was on the pool deck on waterfront property which can be very rough during bad weather in Michigan. It looks beautiful. Quality I found this to be a quality product as it has lasted 15 years. Durability Has stood up under all elements poolside and still have it 15 years and still looks great. Coverage The thicker paint made for excellent coverage. I used a sponge brush and it worked very well. It dried nicely and I gave it a second coat. Ease of Appliation Very easy to use. A little bit thicker than most paint but with the intricate pattern I was painting it worked great. After two coats of paint I used a contrasting color to give it an antique look and wiped it with a soft cloth before it dried. It looks fantastic.
