You’re probably thinking that it’s just spray paint, so how hard can picking one be? Most brass spray paints are indeed very similar and provide more or less the same benefits. Determining what a particular spray paint lacks will help you distinguish between average spray paints and the more convenient and beneficial spray paints. However, there are thousands of brass spray paints available, so finding the right one might be tough. We’ve compiled reviews of a few brass spray paints to help you with this challenging task.
|Top Pick||Rust-Oleum Specialty Topcoat||
|Krylon Fusion All-in-One Vintage||
|Rust-Oleum Universal All Surface||
The Rust-Oleum Specialty Topcoat Metallic Brass Spray PAINT promises to produce a shiny, reflective, and bright finish on the material it’s applied to. It’s ideal for painting metal, wood, plastic, and other material, and it’s especially a good choice if you intend to apply a decorative finish to the material. The metal flakes in the spray paint contribute to its ultra-brightness.
This spray paint will not have you waiting for hours before recoating. It dries in just 15 minutes, and this allows you to complete the paint job in under an hour. It covers up to 12 square feet, which makes it very efficient, so you really get your money’s worth with this spray paint.
It provides a protective layer against rusting, and it’s water-resistant. It is definitely our most recommended brass spray paint.
However, the finish should be shinier if the spray paint is intended to be used on metal.
For those who enjoy the benefits of two to three products in one, Krylon’s Fusion All-in-One Vintage Brass Spray Paint is the best choice. It doesn’t require priming or sanding, so you’re saving money on additional products and time.
This spray paint provides a rich and shiny finish on the material it’s applied to, including metal, wood, and plastic. The paint job is not too thick or too thin and provides a protective layer. The pressure of the can allows you to spray efficiently even when holding it upside down.
It dries in 25 minutes or less, so you’re able to apply an additional coating in just a few minutes.
If you’re unable to acquire our top pick, this spray paint does almost as well, that is, if you’re willing to wait a little longer for the paint to dry. It’s easy to spray, but at times it leaves drip marks on the surface.
The Rust-Oleum 260728 Universal All Surface Antique Brass Spray Paint promises to paint any type of surface from metal to concrete. This would be the ideal spray paint for those who work with multiple materials, and not just metal.
It’s highly efficient, covering a surface of 15 square feet a can, so you’re definitely not losing out on your investment. It adds to the material’s durability by preventing rust and corrosion.
It dries relatively slower than the previous spray paints, with a drying time of 30 minutes. Although it promises to provide an attractive, bright, and shiny finish, the finish is a bit dull and the paint leaves drip marks on the material.
The spray is easy to use, but it’s not the most ergonomic, and it will keep you from spraying in certain positions. The nozzle could also use improvements, as it causes a mess when spraying too close.
The Rust-Oleum 7275830 Metallic Burnished Brass Spray Paint is highly versatile. It’s compatible with several materials such as wood, metal, fiberglass, and concrete, and it provides weather- and corrosion-resistant coating. It’s oil-based, so the coating is very durable and protective.
The spray paint dries relatively fast in just under 20 minutes, allowing you to apply an additional layer in no time.
The spray paint claims to contain metallic flakes for shinier and brighter finishes, and it promises to provide effective resistance to abrasion, fading, and chipping. However, the paint job of this spray paint is uneven and watery. It’s rather dull, it leaves drip marks, and it chips easily.
The bottle is meant to cover 15 square feet, yet the paint is so thin that you’d have to apply multiple coatings on one surface. You can only cover about a quarter of the promised surface with one can.
With so many shortcomings, it’s no wonder this brass spray paint is at the bottom of our list. It’s the least efficient and the least recommended.
The Rust-Oleum 1936830 Specialty Topcoat Metallic Brass Spray PAINT is definitely the one we would recommend you opt for. The Krylon K02774007 Fusion All-in-One Vintage Brass Spray Paint would be a close alternative, as it’s almost as effective as our top pick. The product reviews above have hopefully placed you in a better position to determine which brass spray paint will be more suitable for your needs.
