CHICAGO, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For every homeowner who has conquered a decorative painting project, there are countless others who believe they lack the necessary time or skill. Now, Valspar is making it easier than ever for seasoned DIY enthusiasts and novices alike to create impressive decorative effects that typically require costly specialty products and extensive labor and expertise, with the introduction of two new aerosol paint options at Lowe's. New Milk Glass and Chalky Finish sprays join an assortment that includes two general-purpose lines, Color Radiance and Project Perfect, plus Outdoor spray products. With a wide array of finishes and hues covering a range of materials from metal, wood and glass to ceramics and wicker, the line offers consumers the right product for nearly any interior or exterior project.
"With these new product introductions and assortment upgrades, Valspar is putting the power of paint and its transformative qualities in the hands of DIY consumers more than ever before," said Mike Wells, general manager, Aerosols at Valspar. "Whatever their level of painting proficiency, those who want to take on a project – small scale or large – will find the inspiration and confidence needed with these time-saving, easy-to-use, economical solutions. It's an assortment created to make decorating fun and simple."
In addition to the two new products, Valspar has updated its spray paint formulations and product packaging for increased effectiveness and functionality. The upgrades' benefits include faster, smoother, more even coverage, quicker dry time, and no wait recoat. The products have an improved patented spray top featuring a twist and lock design that prevents overspray and eliminates lost caps, and the packaging's product education has been revised based on insights from recent consumer studies and user feedback.
Create the look of high-end, vintage glass with Milk Glass spray paint designed for use on metal, glass or wood, with no priming needed. Milk Glass is available in four traditional hues – Antique White, Jade, Marina and Blush, at $7.98 per can. Find Milk Glass in 500 Lowe's stores nationwide for a limited time only.
On the heels of the successful launch of the brush-on Chalky Finish Paint in 2015, Valspar is providing a new application method for this very popular finish designed to help DIYers create a rich aged finish and the character of a distressed surface. Like its brushable counterpart, this spray can be used with Valspar Sealing and Antiquing waxes to achieve the desired finish. The spray version is available in popular Chalky Finish Paint colors: Kid Gloves, Woolen Stocking, Trousseau Blue and Boot Black. For those who prefer spraying rather than brushing, this paint can be found in Lowe's stores nationwide at $9.98 per can.
The Project Perfect paint and priming formulation is a new-and-improved version of the classic general-purpose Valspar spray paint. Boasting an easy application and a quicker dry time of 10 minutes or less, this option is available for $3.98 per can in a broad color offering that can be applied to wood, metal and wicker for indoor and outdoor use.
Another general-purpose spray paint option, Color Radiance features a premium formulation that achieves rich, saturated pigments in an array of modern colors. Priced at $4.98 per can, the product features an increased spray rate with no wait time for recoating and can be applied to nearly any surface – including wood, metal, plastic, masonry, ceramics and more.
This paint is designed specifically for outdoor use providing the ultimate combination of color and protection on virtually any surface. The spray is perfect for adding a fresh splash of color to patio furniture, garden décor and more, all without primer or topcoat. Update wood, metal and stone surfaces with this all-weather, anti-rust formula that offers UV protection.
