I just used my lastcheap flat white Walmart spray paint.

To my horror, I cannot find the flat stuff. Did Wlmart discontinue this type? If so, what are others using?

It is/was gone from mine for quite some time.

Don't know if it is available now.

It has been missing from my local store for a year or two. I bought a Krylon spray can.

Yes, discontinued item. Was told it will not return. My go to for years, just enough pigment and thin enough to not hide the detail.

I've been using the automotive primer in gray to good effect. A few times I waited to long to use again and the can stopped working with paint remaining. Took it back (sans receipt ) and got a full refund for a new can.

Yeah all of the local and not so local stores I've been to are out.
