As I’ve said before, I’m all about using paint to accommodate my changeable decorating whims. Spray paint is the most immediately gratifying of the paint mediums. However, when I was seeking that bright metallic finish in my paints, I was often left somewhat unsatisfied.
The Krylon Silver is flatter than either the Valspar Silver or the Krylon Chrome. There’s really no reflection to it. It’s ever so subtle, but the Krylon chrome has a bit smoother coverage than the Valspar Silver, which gives it just a bit more reflection/shine. The Krylon Chrome is bit pricier than the Valspar Silver. It just depends on the final look you are seeking.

I also compared the Gold Metallics.

Hope this helps in that painting project you have planned.
