Though technically (realistically IMO) not as "drip-free" as Muresco (which a drop cloth is basically a prop), it's still less drippy than wall paint...and it's no slouch by any means

It's really, really, flat...which hides a multitude of sins

Though based on the Aura platform, it takes twice as long to dry...which is a good thing for ceilings (Aura is a bit quick for ceilings, where we always end up hitting spots we already hit)
...but that still can be an issue if you don't plan and execute the swiftest way to coat the ceiling (if the paint starts to set up and you roll into it, you may stick or lift)
On tricky or time-consuming parts, as with Aura, you are better off just doing one part, moving on, then coming back to the area after drying
It touches up, or rolls from wet into (real) dry just fine

It's hiding qualities are even better than Muresco (which again is no slouch at that by any means)
