I bought this beautiful pale green paint to use in my living room. The walls were a dark red, and I planned on using two coats of paint to cover the red, but I only needed one coat of paint. It covered my red walls completely and I was so pleased. It is a dream to work with, rolls on easily, covers beautifully, and I won't buy anything else ever again. It seemed a little pricey, but in the long run considering that I only needed one coat instead of two, it was a real bargain!!

I've painted approximately 25 large 12-foot ceiling rooms in my life (so I'm fairly experienced with house painting)and the Clark & Kensington has by far the worst coverage I've ever seen, either paint & primers in one or of just paint (I've used Behr, Sherwin Williams, Valspar, and Olympic). I used a satin gray on my walls and needed at least two coats and I am on coat 4 of a purple/maroon semi-gloss. I only bought this paint because Ace was running a great promotion. The 5'x5' bathroom I'm painting is taking for.ev.er! Such a waste of time.

    Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Flat Enamel - Gallon:

    I've seen the other reviews that said this paint doesn't cover well or is uneven, and I can only imagine that has more to do with your local store not mixing the paint properly than this paint itself. We are using a light color to cover a grotesquely hideous paint job done by the previous owners of the house we just got, and it's doing a great job hiding that high-gloss hideous dark brick-red paint with only a single coat! Like others on here who have posted reviews, we've tried several different brands of paint over the years and never found one we've been as happy with as this one. I don't understand how there can be such a disparity of reviews on this. I have not found ANY of the comments made in the negative reviews to be true with the C&K eggshell-finish paint we're using.

    Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Flat Enamel - Gallon:

    Ace needs to reevaluate this paint. It covers poorly and unless you enjoy painting several coats stay away from this paint. Luckily I only bought 30% of the paint I needed to paint my house at Ace. C&K must have given themselves the awards for their product. Good thing I bought premium Valspar paint at another large hardware store, which has covered far better then the Ace C&K JUNK! I will never buy this paint again! My house was the same color throughout so it was a very fair comparison. Clark and Kennsington paint is not quality. They couldn't pay me to use that paint for a dog house.

    Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Flat Enamel - Gallon:

    I purchased 8 gallons of C+K interior in a satin/egg-shell finish at my local Ace despite reading the negative reviews I saw on here. I figured what the heck, I'd give it a try at it's price point and the fact that I wasn't thrilled with Sherwin-Williams or Behr-Ultra. The color I used was color-matched from a different manufacturer (Sherwin-Williams "Moderate White"). I painted all walls with two coats of paint (I ALWAYS paint two coats, one coat never gets the job done) which used to be an off-white color. The paint job came out fantastic, even better than the walls that were painted with Sherwin-Williams Super-Paint and Behr Ultra. The only thing I can complain about is the paint seems a little "watery" – BUT I noticed it does not "clump up" like the Sherwin-Williams or the Behr. For that reason I can deal with this trait – I'd much rather have paint that's a little "watery" over paint that gets clumpy. Behr and SW seemed to get "clumpy" and conglomerate over time; C+K NEVER got clumpy. I'm going to buy three more gallons of this paint today. I like it better than SW SuperPaint and Behr.

        We purchased this paint to use in our daughter's room. Even though it was mixed in the store and mixed again at home 15 minutes later, the color was completely uneven. We let it dry and you could see very visible places where it was 2 completely different shades. Thinking we had done something wrong, we tried again and repainted the room a second time. Same problem. After calling the store, we were told we could replace it for another shade. This didn't really help us out as we don't every want to mess with their paint again! Save your money and time and purchase another brand.

            The only good thing I can say about this product is that the color is very nice. I have painted dozens of rooms and have never had a problem achieving a perfect finish. With this paint it is nearly impossible to get even an acceptable outcome. There is no way of evening out the finish. I have applied three coats and it is still not even. I truly can't understand all the positive reviews. I would never buy this paint again and actually feel compelled to warn people about it.

                I painted a couple dressers over a year ago and the paint is still a bit tacky to the touch as if it will never really dry to a reasonably hard finish. A clock radio's rubber feet still stick to it after sitting for just a few minutes. The softest, lightest rub with anything with roll the paint up like it is rubber cement. Not wanting to throw the stuff away and it being the right color, I just gave it another try on a couple bifold doors after a very thorough sanding to help the paint stick. Same results. Almost too tacky to handle after 24 hours drying in a warm room. Too bad 0 stars isn't a rating option. Never again will I buy Clark-Kensington paint.

                      Echoing the comments of Jim earlier-- used to paint a stereo cabinent-- two and a half months later the speakers and components still stick to the surface. You can imagine how the vinyl lps fared on this deal. Wound up putting shelf paper on the storage areas just to keep the lps loose enough to remove.

                              I used this paint on some garage cabinets I built. I painted on 2 coats and it covered ok. We let it dry for a couple of weeks before we put anything in the cabinets. Then we loaded them with some 12 packs of sodas, bundles of paper towels, cans of dog food etc. when we remove the items they stick to the paint. It has now been over 6 months in summer weather and the paint still will not cure. Anything you set on one of the shelves will stick to it, then when you remove the item the paint comes with it. We haven't set anything sticky on the shelves, everything has been dry.
                              I have used lots of different brands of paint, and I have never had anything like this to happen.

                                The paint has a very strong odor at first could not believe what I was smelling but after talking to a paint pro found out it was the amonia in the paint I was smelling. I was told it would eventually go away approx 30 days I was very disappointed because it was my bed room and had to deal with this odor. The coverage was not that good for a paint that was suppose to have a primer built into it.

                                I was so excited to try this new paint with all that it claimed "paint and primer in one". I loved the vibrant colors I was using. I bought 3 seperate gallons, three seperate colors. The colors are AMAZING.
                                As for painting on a wall that was all ready primed...a blank slate if you will.
                                I have now had to go over the paint 3 times and 4 in some places. That is ridiculous, Creating more expense for more paint and time lost due to making sure the underlying wall color did not come through...dis appointed and will continue using the Valspar line.

                                  I've been painting professionally since 1973 and was introduced to this paint 2 months ago. It works well and covers very well in most cases in one coat.
                                  I now recommend this paint to all my customers and I will use it when my wife says it's time to paint our house again.

                                  Great coverage, don't understand the negative comments! We painted a bathroom that have yucky wallpaper with flower designs. Covered in one coat! Have used other products and needed two to three coats and even had to use Kilz on one project.

                                    We recently found ourselves looking at paint swatches at another hardware store. We found a color we liked that used Behr paint Base. We had always used C+K before but figured another quality paint would work just as well. The paint poured out so think, and was hard to apply. The sponge edger just smeared and streaked, and the roller left extremely visible pattern lines from the edge of the roller and the over lapping of the stokes. When we finished painting the room with one coat, we were almost out of paint. In stead of going back to get another gallon of Behr, we color matched the Paint with C+K at our Local ACE, and with one coat, fixed all the inconstancies, and the edger applied paint evenly and without streaks. When we were finished we still had 1/3 of a gallon left. Great Paint, Great Value.

                                      my daughter did a science project testing what paint holds up the best to stains the paints were benjamin moore, sherwin williams and clark and kensington. first place was clark and kensington than benjamin moore than sherwin williams so next time you are planning to paint a room use clark and kensington its tested and proved to work.

                                        I bought this beautiful pale green paint to use in my living room. The walls were a dark red, and I planned on using two coats of paint to cover the red, but I only needed one coat of paint. It covered my red walls completely and I was so pleased. It is a dream to work with, rolls on easily, covers beautifully, and I won't buy anything else ever again. It seemed a little pricey, but in the long run considering that I only needed one coat instead of two, it was a real bargain!!

                                          I covered my bright green paint in my bathroom with a light tan and it only took one coat! It really does cover even the most hideous colors out there in one application.

                                            I should have researched this paint before purchasing, but I was swayed by the nice colors and it was voted #1 paint. Unfortunately, in my opinion it didn't live up to it's number 1 status. I did like the color, but the coverage was so poor we had to buy an extra gallon to go over the patches. With a primer added, more than two coats should not be required to get a good finish. Expected more from this paint, but was very disappointed.

                                            Got a free quart of flat, and liked it. Consumer reports indicated it was a good paint, so I made the mistake of using this instead of my usual brand. Purchased a medium color to cover a white wall in enamel. Painted on a dry day in the Fall, was dripping everywhere (I have painted our whole house several times over - both in and out, and am no novice!). Hated it, very uneven coverage as well, despite three coats. Not pleased at all...

                                              Converted the front porch into my 'dog' room. Plywood on walls. Painted "Heavenly Sand" First coat soaked up, next two very little used. Was very thick, covered great! Love it! Then we polycrylic over it with two coats. Hope it lasts for years!! Should be very east to clean. Will buy again for the outside siding.

                                                      I used this to paint over vinyl wallboard that is light in color, with faint stripes through it. 1 coat looked like I was painting with water color paints. 2nd coat didn't even cover. I should have saved myself time and money and used a primer and cheaper paint, which I've done on this wallboard before, with much better results. 2nd coat has dried all day yesterday and last night, and is still tacky to the touch.

                                                              Good value overall. Despite the self-priming feature advertised in the product, I applied primer (Kilz 2) and used two coats to paint white over sky blue. Each quart of flat paint covered about 90 sq feet. Finished appearance is perfect.

                                                              My only complaint is that my walls still "smell" of paint 3 days after application. I can't say if this is due to primer or paint, but both produts came from Ace.

My house is only 6 years old and we did wash the walls with a cleaner we bought at Ace. Still didn't help. The old color was tan and the new cover is just a shade darker. Would not use again!

                                                                  Lured by the Consumer Reports top rating, I decided to try this for repainting the inside of the house -- some 16 gallons worth! The paint is easy to work with, nice thick consistency, goes on easily with roller or brush. It does take two rolled coats to make a nice cover. When finished, the paint looks great -- smooth, even, lovely, no trace of previous color (darker) showing through.

                                                                  However, probably like most other conventional paints, it stinks long after application. It's been a month since I painted, and the house still smells like fresh paint. So, a word of warning to those with respiratory issues -- this paint may not be for you. Since for years I'd used a zero VOC paint that doesn't even smell after 24 hours, I'd forgotten how smelly conventional paints like this can be.
