Paint and Primer in One is a bit of a misnomer. When you use this kind of paint (and I have used the C&K), you have to realize that the first coat IS your primer coat, but at least you are getting some color down as well. In most cases, you will need two coats, and sometimes three if you are going very light color over a very dark one. The primer helps with adhesion, but still be sure to clean your walls and trim as thoroughly as you can. These paints are thicker than normal, and do have a somewhat "gummy" texture as they initially dry. For this reason, the paint will sometimes cling to any edging tape that you might use, and create some uneven lines as you pull the tape off. I am one of those who believe that it's best to paint without tape - get a good small sash brush and learn how to use it freehand - it's not that difficult. Paint and Primer in One paints also have a slow period of curing. You will find that the paint, while dry to the touch, stays somewhat "soft" for some time - but then it dries to a very durable and hard shell. If you have kids in the house or are careless about rubbing against fresh paint, this paint may not be the ideal choice. You really have to leave it alone
while it goes through that extended curing process. If you can do that, you will be rewarded with a very durable "shell" of paint. The C&K paint has a fairly low odor level. I've used it with minimal ventilation and have not been bothered by the smell. So in summary, know what you are using. The paint with primer added does not save you the step of priming, but simply allows you to do that with colored paint. You may need another coat for optimal color evenness. It cures slowly, so you need to consider that as well.

I'd give it negative stars if I could.

I decided to buy all my paint for my new home locally. I was looking for paint with primer and this had some positive reviews, so I purchased 8 gallons of this paint which should have been more than enough to paint the bedroom, bathrooms, dining room and kitchen with some left over for the spare bedroom a few months down the road.

It was a HUGE WASTE OF MONEY. The paint doesn't cover even lighter colors. It took a whole gallon to paint a powder room (5'x4'). About 2 weeks after I painted the walls, I used some frog tape for freshly painted surfaces and it still peeled away from the wall.

Save your money and your sanity and buy something else.

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

    I've painted every room in every house I've owned (4, and probably 5 soon) and I can spot a bad paint job from a mile away. I'm a semi-professional painter- I paint my friend's bedrooms for a little extra money. Bought this paint with low expectations- I just wanted to cover a bad paint job and to get away from the dull brown that was throughout the house and it was on sale, buy 2 get 1 free.

    I can honestly say I'd pay full price for this in the future. It goes on smoothly and evenly. I thought I'd have to do at least 2 coats on our textured walls but that's not necessary.

      After reading many negative reviews on this paint I was a little hesitant on purchasing this paint but I thought this is for the bathroom and didn't need that much. To my surprise this paint covered very well over new sheetrock. The color
      looks great and went on evenly. To all those negative Nellies out there either you don't know how to paint or your using the wrong rollers. This is good paint.

          I don't know what's with all the negative reviews...I have used this paint repeatedly in my living room, stairwell, hallway, and 2 bedrooms. I LOVE IT. I have recommended it several times. I always expect to do 2 coats and a little touch up for areas that I may have missed getting well. It's just not reasonable to expect to cover in 1 coat. I have used LOTS of different paints in my time and have never had 1 coat coverage. I would use this paint again every time!

            After reading the reviews, I wondered if they are really being matched up to the right products or just the brand in general. I REALLY LIKE THIS PAINT. It is a nice thick consistency, goes on smoothly, and dries evenly. I always use two coats even with primer to get a better job. I usually tape edges and remove tape after a couple hours. This allows me to take a damp cloth and run it over any of the taped edges for smoothing and easy removal of paint where not taped well. I have purchased about 7 gallons of this same product at different times and the paint has always been the same product I expected.

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

                I painted my living room yesterday with this stuff and was horrified at the results. It's patchy from lack of covering properly. My walls look like a bad quilt. This paint MIGHT make it if I keep applying more coats but I think I will cut my losses and bring this stuff back for disposal. I have painted my living room many times over the years, mostly with Valspar and always have been satisfied with the results but this stuff was on sale as 'buy one, get one free'. Now I know why, what a mistake. I prepped the walls just as one should do, patched little imperfections and primed them. I washed the walls down with a soapy solution, stirred the paint and went to work. Immediately after finishing I saw the problems and thought, 'I'll let it dry and check it in the morning, maybe the paint fairy will make this work'. I just looked at my living room and there is no change, a disaster. I am a single fellow so I don't have to endure the wrath of a wife but I better get something else on there before my girlfriend shows up for dinner tonight. I suppose now I will have to prime because the paint I was putting on was a little darker than what I had. Sigh. Never again.

                  Great one coat coverage just as good as more expensive top line Behr paint. Will be buying two more gallons of a different color to paint another room. DO NOT believe negative reviews those people are talking out their butt holes.

                    First let me say that I bought two colors: one very dark blue and one white. Both paint colors drip excessively. Super messy cleanup, splattered everywhere. The dark blue did cover a white wall in one coat. The white, however, took three coats to cover a white wall. The odor was horrible. I do not recommend this paint. Lesson learned.

                      I ended up with this paint because our local Ace Hardware did not have the Valspar paint I came in for and I was in a hurry to get going on a remodel of my mother's house. I won't buy this kind again. It is very thin, and barely covers when applied with a brush (like cutting in). Coverage is better with a roller but you really have to load it on. You will most definitely need at least 2 coats and that is if you are painting white on top of white (which I was). I painted one small bathroom, a hallway, and a bedroom. It looks okay but application was not a pleasant experience.

                          I was very hesitant to try this paint after reading the reviews. But I loved the color on the C&K paint swatch, so I had to test it out. It was fantastic--great coverage, goof-proof, beautiful color. I am baffled by the negative reviews...I am using this paint everywhere from now on.

                            This is not a good paint. It is a great paint. Smooth, great coverage, makes painting easy. I covered an off white interior wall with a KC deep terra cotta. One coat with a bit of touch up and the job was done. I've done several rooms with this product in different colors and am so pleased that the paint is so creamy it oozes on with little effort. I am now doing an exterior mural with the product and so far it is a snap. Of all the paints I have used in over 40 years of painting, I have never really enjoyed the task. With Kensington Clark its a whole new story.

                            We used Clark & Kensington Semi Gloss in our kitchen over primer on wood. It took 3 coats of K&C to cover nicely. Looks very nice, easy to wipe clean, but it has been a year and the paint has not completely hardened. Yes, we used promptly after buying at Ace. Yes, we stirred and mixed thoroughly before using. Yes, we applied it with care in nice even strokes. Yes, we waited until completely dry according to the instructions on the can before applying 2nd and third coats. Tacky, tacky, tacky. I've a lot of experience with paint, usually very positive and satisfying, but not with C&K. As others have said, don't waste your time and money and energy. Next time, I am trying anything other than Ace products. Also, wake up paint manufacturers! Not everybody wants primer in paint. It is not necessary on pre-painted surfaces and causes gummy problems.

                                DIY - FEAR NOT. I needed to paint the inside of the house again.. it had been like 8 years... the problem was my walls were ORANGE - a BURNT ORANGE --LOL (I was having a moment). I wanted to go light grey - but was afraid of how many coats I would need. I bought the paint on sale and was totally impressed the color matched the sample perfectly. When I got it home and put it on the walls.. I LOVED IT. One coat - complete coverage - no smell.. I am totally impressed and now a life long believer. I will be coming back for more. So amazed best paint experience of my life... and over 35 years of having to paint... I have a lot of experience to say it.

                                    I'm so disappointed. After two coats it could probably use another - and this is primer/paint. I have used Glidden over the same color in another room - using yellow - and it covered after one coat. I also hate the color. It's suppose to be a buttery yellow and it has a lot of green in it - almost a nuclear color. I don't know whether it's the paint or improper. I will never buy this paint again.

                                      This paint has only been on the walls for a month now and there are 8 different spots where the paint has peeled off. Worst paint we've ever used for longevity. Very disappointed...

                                        First, for those folks that complained about the paint. My guess is that they just bought it off the shelf and never had it properly mixed or that they didn't mix it well when using it for a second time. A misnomer is that one coat of paint will not normally suffice unless it is the same color.

                                        I repainted our master bath with the CK paint and primer in one. After the second coat dried, we were amazed at the finish and we plan to use for all our other eight rooms as I redo them.

                                            We painted a small room previously painted a pale gray. The gray showed right through even though it's paint and primer in one and even after we gave it more coats. And then Ace hassled us about returning it even when they said it was defective. Don't buy it, you'll be mad at yourself.

                                            I'm using this pain on a living room wall. I've applied two coats, and it will need the third. I'm applying white onto a light blue wall. This pain has a gooey, sticky consistency, and it is very difficult to get a smooth application. I've tried using two different brushes, as well as a roller, and it doesn't make any difference.
                                            A couple of weeks ago, I painted my bathroom with another brand of paint, and it worked so much better. That paint was easy to apply, and it provided a beautiful, smooth coverage in one application.
                                            I don't believe I'll ever buy Clark+Kensington paint again.

                                                This is the first time I have used the interior paint and primer and absolutely. love. it. I was covering a dark green paint on 70s textured walls and this covered in one coat and only used 1-1/2 gallons vs. normal 3-4 gallons of other competitors paint. Love it!

                                                  For the first time, I used a professional painter and he chose C+K satin for painting over stained trim that had been sanded. With 2 coats, the finish is very nice with no evidence of bleed through after 2 months.

                                                  Three weeks after paint was applied, carpet was installed and the painted trim was more easily marred than with other paints I have used. The painter did advise that this paint seems to take longer to fully harden than others. Two months later, the finish now seems more durable.

                                                  Doing some painting and touch ups myself with a brush, the paint is a little thinner (and runnier) and dries faster than other paints I have used. One needs to be both fast and careful to get the best finish.

                                                        The gloss exterior paint I purchased goes on like a gel with about 2% coverage. Ridiculous. I have never in 25 years of painting used paint with as low a quality as this. Complete waste of time.

                                                            I used C&K P&P in 1 that my son picked out to paint a medium blue bedroom and a light green office in his house, both over off-white paint. The C&K was a little runnier than paints I normally use (usually BM) but I thought it covered great and I almost got away with one coat (even though I ALWAYS do 2 coats of paint no matter what brand and more coats for reds and dark colors if necessary), and the finish was beautiful. I got used to the consistency of the paint quickly and found it a breeze to use with excellent results. I can't speak to washability, tough-ups, or durability as it's not in my house yet but I plan to give C&K another try when I do more painting in my own home as the price is right and the coverage and finish is excellent.

No way that this paint is low VOC. Smelled pretty bad. Superfluid consistency, so extreme messy to work with. And worst of all, painting white over an off-white and needed 3!! coats. Primer & paint in one, say what?! Sorry, but after that experience I am going back to Behr paint.

                                                                      After one week of > 90 degrees in town, the shelves are still sticking to items, and the drawers stick to each other, making many peeling corners and edges. It must have some sticky plastic-type of finish. Also cannot sand a bad or rough spot. Instead, it peels back like rubber and whole 1" strips coming off down the cabinet. I couldn't believe it actually peeled off like rubber cement. The worst paint I've ever used in 30 years.

I bought the one for a kitchen/bath. There is no scrubable finish. If I attempt to wash wall, I will see paint come off. Satin finish looks flat.

                                                                        I had a Big box store's colors matched into C&K satin enamel. I thought it covered well with two coats. I had to do 3 on a dark red covering with a peach. I tried a "one coat" and it was the thickest, stickiest, still requiring two coats...and went right back to the C&K. In the last two months, I have purchased 5 gallons and 2 quarts and have several gallons more to purchase. I love the sample size..worth the price to make sure!
