    Mix a little turpentine in it, should flatten it out. That’s all I have used for years, no problems.

    I just tried to touch up some blackhead bodies with the Rustoleum flat back and found the same thing. I gave it hell, but the can has been sitting upright for two seasons. Not quite enough.

    Good info.

    How much is a little? Rough guess of an oz per 8 oz?

    Try a little at a time, a splash to start with, if it is still shiney add a little more. Don’t over do it or it will be too thin. Stir the he!! out of it. If that doesn’t work buy a new can.

    Moisture in the air will cause shine in flat paints.

    I use thinner to make it super flat. That works for me. Stir it well and add thinner. Water like paint will dry fast and flat. 5:1 flat rustoleum to thinner...
