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:

    My husband and I have owned several rental properties. We've painted these properties all ourselves, so we know a decent paint. This is the worst paint I've ever used. I bought the exterior paint for a porch bench with a covering and a birdhouse. I couldn't use the bench all year because the paint wouldn't cure. If you put any pressure on it, you ended up with the print of whatever touched it and tearing. I waited a month before finally putting the birdhouse up and at the end of the season, the paint peeled off while washing it with a garden hose.

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

      I was so disappointed in this product. I had to paint three coats to finally get complete coverage. I used painters tape to protect the wood I was painting next to and wherever the tape and paint met, the paint peeled right off the wall along with the tape. Horrible. Now I am stuck with fixing this and having these trouble spots show forever.

      beware--it is not flat but has a sheen

      Cons

      • inconsistent texture between cans, runny/thick
      • not flat but has slight sheen

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

        I bought this after seeing Consumer Reports list that put this in the top for ceiling paints. I don't know what they were thinking because this paint is NOT a dead flat but has a slight sheen. When you view at at an angle, it reflects light. So you should be aware that ceiling imperfections are going to show up with this paint. It had decent coverage and we did an about 500-550sf in two coats with just a tad under 3 gallons (note primed ceiling before that). Also touch up blends well. But low stars because although the can says right on the front that there is no sheen, this is completely incorrect. Debating whether to put another coat of truly flat stuff on top or just leave it as is.

              It was thinner than any other paint I have used including deck stain. I needed to bring it back to have the paint re-shaken for each day I used the paint even though I had just used it the previous day.

              DISAPPOINTMENT -

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

              I have used many paints over the years and had wonderful success with Glidden and Valspar but I allowed the Ace salesman to talk me into using this paint. It is awful - feels soft to the touch and very spongy even after having dried for several days. Now I shall buy my preferred paint and paint all over again. I have learned a lesson. Also the finish is not what I purchased. It has absolutely no sheen and shows imperfections. BAD PAINT!!

                Used this to repaint Kitchen cabinet because I liked the color. Every thing was cleaned with TSP, Sanded with 2 grades of sandpaper, then primed with a high quality primer. Used top quality brush. Paint went on streaky. Did 2 coats on back, 3 on front of cabinet door- sanding lightly , using tack cloth in between coats. 5 months later doors are still tacky. ( we have an average humidity of about 20-30% here in Albuquerque- so its not that). It does have a low odor.
                Wish I had used the Valspar instead. Hope I dont have to end up repainting because it was a major project. Don't use this paint.

                      I have covered white walls with deep terra cotta Clark Kensington in one coat and minor touch up. I have also covered fresh plaster with a deep sage and needed only one coat. The paint went on smoothly, evenly and cleaned up easily. What a great product.

                        The most important part of painting is the prep work. It's not any paints fault for unevenness. The applicator should look in the mirror. Higher a professional and you won't get unevenness and if your a professional and still getting unevenness you too should higher a real professional. A real professional can make any paint look good. This is a great paint for the price and better than higher priced paints.

                          I have used this paint in two different homes that we own. I love the colors and color matching scheme, but most of all, I like how it covers and how it is thick enough that it doesn't drip, run, or splatter when rolling it on. I just did our dining room and didn't even need to put down a drop cloth. Totally satisfied!

                            This paint is horrible !! I have been painting my homes for over 40 years and I cannot remember any paint this bad. This paint is as thin as water, and smells horrible. I did a 4 sq.ft. test area and could not get it to cover after many coats and it seems to be running off my wall like it is melting. Brush strokes will not smooth out, I had to wipe them off with a paper towel. It also takes forever to dry and the color values are not close to the swatches in depth quality. I was painting over a flat wall that was a very white grey with their "chance of rain" color, a vary light beige. This wall had been painted that long ago, so it was clean and this should have never happened. The only thing good was the paint brush cleaned quickly because the paint is so thin. I bought this paint because Ace's previous paint, Royal, was very good, this however reminds me of milk paint, ACE should be ashamed of themselves, I won't be shopping there anymore !

                            My husband and I have been using the Clark and Kensington paints in a variety of applications in an older home we just baought. We have used a number of different paints, including Sherwin Williams, and are very satisfied with the way Clark and Kensington perform. I always apply two coats whenever I paint walls or celings (haven't painted furniture with it--usually use chalk paint for that), and we have gotten excellent coverage. Even when we painted a teen's bedroom a rich, deep teal we got excellent coverage. Doesn't seem to smell like some of the paints that we have used. We frequently use paint chip samples from other brands (Ben Moore is a favorite), and Ace does a superb job of matching the color. We will continue to buy Clark and Kensington!

                              I used this to paint a dresser and it covered really well. I did prime it before I painted, so that may have helped. I did a second coat, but I don't think it would have needed it if I did a thicker coat. Great paint.

                                  I tried this paint after seeing the Consumer Reports review. I painted my bathroom cabinetry, woodwork and walls. The walls did fine, but on the hard surfaces it will not stick and peels off in sheets! All my work for nothing and now Ive got a huge mess to repair. Never again will I use this paint!

                                    Do not buy this paint, it was the worst paint I have ever used. Very heavy, thick, never dries. Applied 3 coats and walls still appear uneven. WASTE OF TIME - very upsetting.

                                      This paint covers like magic. We used a light green satin paint over a very dark orange and it covered in one coat. Not only that but it went very far. We had three walls done with only one gallon. Definitely worth the extra expense but I bought it at the Ace half price sale last month so it was an even better deal.

                                        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.

                                        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.

                                        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.

                                                          This paint was horrible, it takes several coats and does not go on even, the paint does not mix well and different applications go on different colors.

                                                          I will never buy this paint again.

                                                            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 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.
