I had been looking for a sealant to work on my tile coasters that had been painted with alcohol paints. I tried several other brands and types, but it would smear the paint, or when dry, would chip off. This clear glaze sprayed on smoothly and gave it a nice, glossy finish. The paint did not smear and it has not chipped. I'm very happy I finally found something that worked, and worked well!
I used the Krylon indoor/outdoor spray paint in Purple, gloss finish to paint a wooden bed for my daughter. We sanded and prepped it all perfectly. It was gorgeous and super glossy and exactly what I wanted it to be. I decided to use this Krylon Triple -Thick Crystal Clear glass because I love a high gloss finish. I figured this would be perfect. Finish it off and give it a great shiny finish. I couldn't have been more wrong. It was cloudy, and muttled. It left my paint job looking horrible, it was matte, and left a weird dusty type film on the bed. The can spit and spat while trying to use it, leaving globs of this weird hazy stuff on the bed. (We are pretty much experts in spray painting, as we have done a ton of pieces of wooden furniture and other items using Krylon spray paint. We had never used this glaze before though). We now need to re-sand the bed and essentially re-paint the purple onto it. We will never use this product again. The regular spray paint gloss was enough for me.
I purchased the Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze (spray) to coat pinecones that I had previously spray painted for a craft project. The Triple Thick changed the color of the pinecones. They no longer look bright gold. They are a dull shade of gold. I got the same results with the silver ones I spray painted. However, they were glossy, but I had to spray paint them again after applying the Triple Thick to get the original color back. I was disappointed!
I originally purchased this to use as a coating for my walking stick, and have since used it on MANY other things, mostly ceramics that we've painted. It has yet to fail us. It's smooth, crystal clear, and leaves a gorgeous glossy shine on everything. In fact, I just used it this morning to coat a couple of ceramics that we painted yesterday. When the can runs out, you can be sure I'll be buying more!!
This product does not give a good even finish on application. The results are uneven and unattractive.
