For your kitchen? I hope so, because all the examples they give are items not exposed to the elements.

Stainless Steel used in kitchens normally have a grain in them, this is usefull wihen trying to get out scratches. I don't know how this paint will give you the look of stainless including it'* natural grain. It may give you the colour of stainless but I don't see how it can give you the beauty of the grain and it'* durablitly of stainless. I believe that you'll be able to notice the difference between this paint and natural stainless. I know I would be able to, but that'* probably since I've worked with kitchen grade stainless for 14 years.

You can roll tubes. It takes forever, but you can do it. I had to do it tons of times when I was a painter.

And as to the grain, you hit it with one of their "Micro-Foam" brushes after rolling to get the grain. Then you clear coat it.

Did no one else read the page, or did everyone just look at the pictures??

I like looking at pictures MOS95B. The grain in Stainless is so fine that you can hardly notice it, untill you get up close, also Stainless when viewed from different angles have different shades. I'd be interested to see the end results, but in my opinion, you'd have to be a pretty goodt painter to get good results.

now that'* funny.


I looked over the pictures from the site, and it seems the stuff comes out pretty good. It doesn't quite have that shiny finish look, but it doesn't look bad. Heck, I'd do it if I actually owned my fridge and stove
