    The picture is Glidden Ultra-hide 250.
    Purchased today, (they shook it)
    It showed some separation when I opened it so I mixed it again
    Took the picture about an hour after I mixed it.
    Any Ideas of what that is? colerant? Resin?

    I found this online which should explain exactly what it is.
    "ULTRA-HIDEĀ® 250 Interior paint, part of our commercial grade interior line, offers the optimum balance of application properties to enable commercial painters to maximize their productivity on-site. It covers in one coat over most colours as well as offering great touch-up and outstanding hide."

    Is it thick/chunky ? Or does it disperse , if it does it might just be some colorant seperation. I have seen that before with some paints/colorants , no matter how much it gets mixed there seems to be a little bit hanging on top after a little while. Even right after coming off the shaker.
