    Jan 29, 2011, 8:44 PM - alternative to rustoleum spruce green? #1

    Are there any alternatives to this paint (aside from the POG)? I can't find it at any of my local lowes/HD/walmart. Will probably have to end up ordering it if I can't find it. If someone has the product information that I could give lowes that would help. It's a satin color, correct? I appreciate any responses. Thanks!

    Great question! I was just out tonight looking for this color and I couldn't find it. I found hunter and club and everything else but couldn't find spruce.

    I'm trying to find spruce to get the rest of my armor pieces done. No Lowes' really close to me, maybe somewhere else carries it or I'll give moss a shot.

    I checked both HD and Walmart and neither had spruce. Is moss a good match for the armor or does it need to be darker?

    I got mine from amazon.com

    Amazon.com: Rust-Oleum 7737830 Satin Enamels Spray, Spruce Green, 12-Ounce: Home Improvement

    Noone carried it by me either. It was like IMPOSSIBLE to find...then i found it on Amazon, and the price isnt too bad. I ordered 2 cans just to justify the shipping cost, but i knew i would use em. Im actually going to order more in the near future.

    Are you paint the helmet or the armour ?
    If you are looking for a good spray paint for the main colour on the helmet, try to find a Tamyia (air craft colour) field grey
    Im shore they have it over in the states

    Actually the Rustoleum Spruce Green is just a shade lighter than the Panzer Olive Green on Lee's ESB Paint list. It's so close that I use the POG to do touch ups on my helmets and it's almost imperceptible.

    Anyone looking for Rustoleum paint of any kind, if you have a Menard's near, GO THERE! As far as spray paint goes that is the only line they carry and they have a HUGE range of colors. I have found every color I was looking for there!
