Q: I was trying to use the spray on a clean surfaceof a metal table, but I could not get an even finish! it has drips, bumps and inconsistencies. Is there any tips & tricks? Should I apply a second coat?
A: Thank you for reaching out! With our Rust-Oleum Imagine Metallic Sprays, multiple light coats are the best way to create an even finish. The first coat or two will look uneven, but the color will even out as more are applied, allowing 10-15 minutes between coats. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2submitted byRust-OleumSupport - 1 year agoBrand expert
