I:m using valspare outside paint like the way it covers , but i have a problem with it drying to fast. IN just a few seconds icant go back over it without it draging and leavin brush marks. Has anyone used this paint,and what can i do to correct this? The paint is real thick but it says not to thin unless using a spray gun. THANKS

You could add some Floetrol to help, but the real problem is that you're likely working in the sun, wind, when it's too hot, or your technique could be improved. Go with some Floetrol and try to paint under ideal conditions, if possible.

Go to a paint store and get some REAL paint
Where do you get your paint wallmart. The paint is not the problem. I just wanted to know if the weather humity or smothing elsewas the problem.

Maybe not, but you are going to have to supply many more details if you expect an answer. What was the weather,humidity,direct sun, wind, shade,cheap brush,etc,etc.

By the way Valspare( Lowes) is not considered QUALITY paint by any professional painting standards, neither is anything from Wallmart or Home Depot for that matter
