The Reviews

I loved the eco packaging - so important, I will never buy another brand again. Thanks for a great product with barely any smell

Vanessa, Kamas, UT

Instructions were very clear. I like the gallon container which is much better than the typical round paint containers. Even the black paint cleaned up very easily

I love it

Marceline, Rapid City, SD

both are exactly as described. not the absolute BEST quality paint in terms of pigment density - takes a few coats to get it to sit right - but have a beautiful finish and we're very happy with how they came out

I’ve been only using backdrop to completely transform two houses. Kismet has blown my socks off.
