red paint


Has anyone used a red Valspar paint that was really red when you painted it on something?

red paint


Because yours isn't? lol
Red is a hard paint to get good coverage with.
One trick is to prime with a med grey first, then the red looks richer. With many paints it will take 3-5 coats to get full red. There are a few that can get there quicker. I don't thing Valspar is one of them..
