I applied the aging over 2 coats of Benjamin Moore semi-gloss. After my other horrrific experiences with Rappl Lauren paints, I was understandably reluctant to use his semi-gloss as the base. My paint store assured me the Benjmain Moore would work just as well. I belive them...I still do...and don't try to convince me otherwise. I'm now having the room papered professionally. When I was at the paint and wallpaper store, I related my story to the person there who was helping me select the paper. She said she couldn't even count the number of times people had come in complaining about, and totally frustrated and disgusted with, the Ralph Lauren products. She said professionals wouldn't even use them. I stand by my opinion. They're garbage.

NJGuy........opinions are like elbows - everyone has at least two.

You are entitled to yours.

I wonder why I have been able to do these techinques successfully time after time over the last two years......and yet you and others cannot?

Practice.....patience.....ability to follow directions? Hard to say for sure?

My opinion is that RL is not garbage - The specialty finishes do work - the broadwall is some of the best paint out there - the colors are great!

I had lots of problems with this paint. First of all, the instructions are poor, I have 3 gallons that say apply in 28x28 patterns, 2 gallons that say 18x18 patterns. The RL video shows 28x28 with v stroke, Home depot hand out 18x18 with v stroke. Its no wonder we have problems with it. Custemer rep says it should not be applied in the winter when humidity is low however nowhere in their literature does it say this. All in all this product is a waste of time and money.
