Found poundland are selling spray paints - both the gold, as pictured, as well as silver and grey. 250/300ml sizes.

Great for crafts (dare I say Christmas) and giving your furniture a new lease of life.

The gold is a generic spray paint, though the silver is marked as a 'silver wheel' spray but this did a fantastic job for crafts for me - and hey surely it's hard wearing. The grey is a 'wheel primer' - I've used plenty of primer sprays in my up cycling before and they look fantastic as a final colour though I haven't tested this one.

Available in the DIY section next to all other car bits and pieces, should be nationwide.

Spray paints usually retail for at least £5 so this is a great deal for the limited selection.

excellent when twinned with those magnetic letters your kids have

useful for garden furniture that needs a bit of a pock me up

Went looking for this the other day mine didn't have any

They are always one pound in pound shops

You could spray the £1 vibrators they're selling and make people think you're rich.

​Glad to hear it, though the point of the post was of course to share the fact that a nationwide store currently stocks this line

There's always one. Or two. The deal is this item for a pound. Engage brain to consider how hot or cold the deal is like every other deal on here - an item for a specific price.

Now I have a better understanding why you go around talking about people dying from eating Pringles etc.

Might not be everyones cup of tea, but have just used the Poundland grey primer on this old chair, took 3 tins but did give a good finish, not too shiny

Boooooooooooooooom

The paint in the cheap aerosols in pound shops is usually cellulose so it won't be that hard-wearing but it should be fine for craft projects. If you buy those papier-mache or wooden Christmas baubles and stuff from Hobbycraft these sprays are a cheap way of jazzing them up. Next cheapest is usually places like The Range who do branded aerosol paint for about £4.

Slightly surprised you say that cellulose paint would not be hard wearing as it was used as a car paint finish for many years.

Yep but those cars started to rust just a few months out of the factory IIRC.

Brilliant! Heat added.
I bought one on thursday thinking this one might not be that good. Came home and tested on my ceramic to see how good it was.
In the meantime I opened Ebay apps to check the spray paints I saved to buy. Was surprised to see that these were the ones I saved. 3.99 each inc P & P oO.
Can't wait to stock some more. Didn't see silver though.

Cellulose was indeed used for years on cars until the development of two pack paint which is much harder and can be polished to a deeper gloss. You can still buy cellulose paint to spray at home but it takes longer to dry and is much softer than modern paint. There has been a move to safer water based paints in recent years, though these are not without issues - Mercedes-Benz had problems with cars around 2000-2003 with poor adhesion and rusty wheel arches.

I would think that the can accounts for most of the cost of Poundland paint. The 'paint' is mostly solvent ; which is why you need you shake it a lot. Good value though.

If you want paint that will dry very hard, Aldi straight to metal aerosol paint is very good. It only comes in black, white, or green (that I have seen) but is excellent for things like gates or brackets, or any outdoors painting. £3 a can. Lidl do a similar product.

Plastikote aerosols are excellent quality and come in a big range of colours but are expensive. B and M sell them.
