Anyone used 'em? If so, what do you think?

Saw them on the page and was intrigued, a 1 oz. bottle for $2.35 USD, less if you buy in greater quantities. The price is certainly right, but there is often be a reason for that…

Anyway, what say you?

I bought a number of their paints two months ago and found them to be quite good. I plan to order more.

Rdfraf…They're described as coming with a "Fresh-Loc" cap. Can you describe that, I'm not familiar with that style(I don't think).

What is the finish on this paint? Is it truly matte, or does it dry with a satin sheen?

Thanks for the interest in the paint.

As regarding the cap, it is a flip-top style cap, however, since the china flu panic our supplier has been unable to obtain that style of lid in the quanities we require and we are currently being supplied with a reduction insert and a screw on cap.

So you may get a(depending upon the colors you order) a flip-top cap or one of the reduction insert type. They both work and we've not been made aware of any issues with either type.

Not sure if that helps you or not.

But, either way, you will not be disappointed.

The dark blue I have I've been using for Union troops amongst others, is bang on to my eye.

Thanks for the input everyone, and especially the clarification about the caps Dave. I think I'll give 'em a try.thumbs up

p.s. Extra points for calling it the china flu.
