Custom Spray 5-in-1 Puts the Power of Creativity in Your Hands

Rust-Oleum delivers confidence, control and choice in its latest precision spray paint solution


Vernon Hills, Ill., April 3, 2023 – Rust-Oleum, an innovation leader for more than a century, today announced spray paint’s newest evolution, Custom Spray 5-in-1. This first-of-its-kind innovation in spray paint technology empowers with ease and allows painters to change spray patterns with a simple click of a dial.


“Custom Spray 5-in-1 was created after years of research and testing countless spray paint projects,” said Jeff Kistler, Executive Vice President, Product Management at Rust-Oleum. “We listened to consumers who said they wanted more choice, control, and creativity for their spray painting projects — 5-in-1 is the answer.”


The Custom Spray 5-in-1 gives DIYers a choice of five different spray patterns. With a turn of the dial, select fan sprays for larger surfaces and lower output sprays for detailed areas.

Whether it’s a wide, flat surface, a tangle of nooks and crannies, or anything in between, complicated projects need reimagined solutions. The Custom Spray 5-in-1 technology offers unexpected precision and puts the painter in charge.


The Custom Spray 5-in-1 dial offers these five spray patterns:

1.     High Output

2.     Standard

3.     Low Output

4.     Vertical Fan

5.     Horizontal Fan


Custom Spray 5-in-1 is offered in the advanced Stops Rust formula. The formula harnesses technology to provide 30% greater corrosion resistance and color retention as compared to the original Stops Rust.


Whether you’re a veteran DIYer or new to spray painting, you’ll paint with confidence as you move from one spray pattern to another. You’ll get less overspray, fewer runs and drips, less wasted paint, and better results.


You’re in control. Welcome to the dawn of a new spray.

Budget Bliss with Something Blue: Custom Meets Cost-Effective this Wedding Season

You don’t have to skimp on sophistication with the help of DIY, Rust-Oleum expert says 


Vernon Hills, Ill., May 6, 2024 – Saying “I do” is getting even more costly for couples this year, with one recent survey pegging the average cost of a wedding to be more than $30,000. From engagement parties and showers to rehearsal dinners and even the big day, it can all add up. Rust-Oleum, a leading innovator in coatings and paints, offers tips and trends to help celebrate in style without breaking the bank.


The company recently unveiled Satin French Blue as its Spray Paint Color of 2024. This color is quickly becoming the darling of wedding events for its airy elegance and also offers a trending complementary spray paint palette. These colors are beautiful go-to’s to transform sign boards, easels, frames, gift card holders and more.


“Satin French Blue offers endless possibilities for projects that infuse spaces with color and joy,” said Lindee Katdare, creative producer and in-house DIY expert at Rust-Oleum. “It marries everything from the tradition, ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’ for an unforgettable wedding experience.”


Custom crafts on the rise

A company survey of more than 150 brides and grooms showed that they are increasingly turning to DIY wedding projects to save on costs and add personalized touches to their festivities. 


Top DIY projects for showers and weddings include:

  • Invitations/Save the Dates
  • Floral arrangements
  • Decorations (centerpieces, signage)
  • Guest favors and gifts 


“DIY helps you save on costs but also creates priceless memories that resonate for a lifetime,” said Katdare. “With color and creativity, these touches can infuse a special sense of charm and meaning without sacrificing style.”


A few of Katdare’s favorite transformations include using Universal Aged Metallic Spray Paint in Vintage Gold to give wooden or metal easels a classic look. She also likes playing up something blue by turning champagne caddies into personalized bridesmaid gifts or adding unique and unexpected pops of color to floral centerpieces.


Making a statement with sapphire

As more people shift away from traditional white décor, the Pinterest 2024 Wedding Report revealed searches for “blue wedding rings” up 155%. But Katdare says rings shouldn’t be the only showstopper in blue. She says Rust-Oleum’s Custom Spray 5-in-1 in Satin Sapphire Blue is a great choice for painting chairs for an eclectic wedding or bridal shower.


“Don’t be afraid to experiment with color. It can easily elevate any occasion to add your vibes, your way,” said Katdare. “What I love about Rust-Oleum’s new Custom Spray 5-in-1 is how it’s the perfect go-to spray paint for newbies and experts.
