Why I bought it: Rustoleum’s hammered finish spray paint doesn’t come in bright red.
The Good: Dazzling Metallics Elegant Finish in ‘Festive Red’, manufactured by DecoArt, is just as shiny as it claims it is. It’s also an acrylic paint, and goes on with that much ease. I haven’t tried it on fabric, but it goes on very well over foam and insulation foam (pre-treated with a coat or two of Tack Glue to prevent paint absorption.) The amount of metallic in the product makes it highlight a sponge-painted effect very well.
The Bad: ‘Festive Red’ is also just as pink-hued as the label suggests. But since it needs a couple of coats anyways, painting it over a layer of a brown-leaning red counterbalances this pretty decently. This line of metallics doesn’t have nearly as many choices as other brands.
Worth it?: Yes. If it’s the exact color you’re looking for, then congrats. But since it’s an acrylic, it will mix nicely with other paints anyways. You can find it with the rest of the acrylic paints in craft stores. I paid a little over $2 per 2 US fl oz. bottle at Hobby Lobby.
