I've been using this product consistently over the last several years. I have never had a problem with this paint at cold temperatures, including many Maine winter days marking timber in sub-zero weather. As long as the product is used fresh and shaken well it performs very well in my Nelson paint gun. If the paint sits around too long (more than a few months) I've found running it through a strainer returns it to a user-friendly state. Overall, a good product at a great value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not a cold weather paint
from northern NY
Comments about Nelson® Econo Spot® Marking Paint, Blue, 1-gal.:
At 20 degrees or less this paint clogs the Nelson gun continuously owing to frost crystals suspended in the paint. It is waterbased. I rotated quarts of paint inside my shirt against my skin to keep it warm enough to mark wood with... not fun.I am not aware that this deficiency is mentioned anywhere in a product description, and despite contacting Nelson Paint Co. I have not seen this defect mentioned in product description.Northern foresters should avoid this product in cold weather.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
