Immediately when we poured the paint into the paint tray we noticed that it was thick (a very good thick!), so we chose to use a very big paint roller (1/2 inch knap). My husband was absolutely amazed at how wonderful the paint went on. It spread so well! Nice and thick. It was not runny at all. Because we have two small children we painted at night so that we did not have little hands in our wet paint! We used 1 entire gallon for our whole living room for our first coat. (1 gallon is supposed to cover 350-400 square feet)
By morning everything was completely dry- and upheld little kids running around in the room till the next night when we could apply our second coat! Because “Pumpkin Pie” is a darker color we did need to apply 2 coats. The first coat dried a little streaky so I was a bit nervous about trying to fix it later. Painting the 2nd coat was SO much easier even than the first coat since we already had the orange paint on the wall. We were able to use a lot less paint for the 2nd coat, and it applied so incredibly nice!
Our entire living room was painted using the 2 gallons that Mythic Paint sent us, and we had plenty of leftover for touchups later down the road. (with kids- you always need touch up paint!) When we checked out our walls the morning after our second coat we were extremely impressed. The paint had dried darker like we were hoping, it was not streaky at all, and it REALLY looked like a high quality room!
We were highly impressed with Mythic Paint. I was wondering if it would be cheap paint because it was eco-friendly but I would definitely buy this the next time I want to paint my walls. It beats the quality of any paint we’ve ever used. It’s top-notch quality and a HUGE plus that it is non-toxic for my boys.
My son woke up the morning after we were done painting and he said “WOW MOM- I LOVE our orange walls! THANK YOU THANK YOU for painting our walls orange!” It made me smile knowing that even if he had gotten into our paint cans (which he thankfully did not!) that they would not have harmed him in any way!
A gallon will run you about $40-60 depending on what type you buy but this product is definetely worth the investment. I consider this a very affordable investment when you are talking about your children, their health and their safety. Mythic Paint always offers FREE SHIPPING which I think is fabulous! Their paint has outperformed both eco-friendly and regular paint competitors in lab testing and has received the quality seal for the “Scrub Test” as well. (the highest award of its kind)
They offer a 1232-color palette in both interior and exterior finishes and can mix any color from any competitor or any imagination that you produce! They offer all sheens from flat to high gloss, ceiling paint, interior drywall primer, and a very unique interior/exterior multi-purpose primer. To clean your walls simply use water and a mild dish liquid!
