A one gallon pail of exterior latex house paint, add some Micro Balloons to it and you basically have the same thing as Lizard Skin or Cool-Car for a mere fraction of the price. A 2 gallon pail of Lizard Skin is about $160

I believe the price is about 8 bucks for the micro-spheres now. Do a google search, I get mine from an ebay supplier. A mixed gallon will go a long way!

So you mixed a gallon of the spheres and a gallon of house paint to make 2 gallons total, or the spheres just thickened the gallon of paint?

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
