    We spray painted the fence and it was a consistency that sprayed really well. Also, the paint still showed the grain of the wood so the wood maintained its character

    I can't give it 5 stars because I don't know how it will perform over a length of time

    Vanta fence paint

    Very good product - easy to apply and covers with one coat. Paint appeared to be very thin when we first opened the lid but that belied it’s adhesive and coverage properties. Easy to stir. Although water based it was a challenge to get it off the hands!!
