I have now done two projects with this paint. Yes, it does take a lot of coats, but they go on quick and set up well. Two of us put five coats on the topsides of a Whaler in about six hours. So far both projects - an outdoor sign and Whaler topsides rehab - are holding up. Soap and water clean up is a breeze and the bags are great. One note is that two bags of product did not match. My bad for not mixing them together. We solved the issue with another quick coat.

Used product to paint wood on screened-in back porch. Excellent packaging of product, easy application of product and color is beautiful.

I'm really happy with this paint on the deck my 42 year old sailboat - she's looking pretty close to new and I've been getting some mildly envious comments from neighboring sailboats. It sticks really well, is easy to roll and tip and has the perfect sheen for an older boat - high gloss shows too many of the little nicks and bumps & doesn't look as nice in my opinion. It also has a great "grip" feel under bare feet compared to my friends' oil gloss boats. I'm going to paint the hull next - very confident that it will do well. the bad news is that it will take at least 3 coats to get an even rich tone - the water soluble clean-up makes it a lot easier to do - but def will need 3 coats and the areas where we went 4 coats is even "deeper" looking. You can re-coat every two hours here in Hawaii. Anyway I'm satisfied and think the extra coating downside is worth it. I am also looking forward to touching it up as things happen over the next few years.

This takes several coats (around 4 or 5) but the smooth level surface is hard to beat. I hope holds up as well as it looks.

Really nice heavy duty paint that applies easy and, most importantly, lends itself to easy clean-up! Always make a mess when you paint? I know you do (I do too). The easy soap & water clean-up along with how well this paint holds up has been the perfect combination. I've used it on a few projects now with no complaints.

Ordered for an outdoor mailbox post. The finish is holding up great after the first couple months of spring storms and all day sun. Easy to apply and easy clean up.

I've now used Elixir paints twice on a few shop furniture projects for my woodshop where I need a durable finish to hold up to the wear and tear. Elixir fits that bill being a marine grade paint, and the colors really pop. Red is my favorite, but they are all bright and vibrant.
