Those spatter trunk colors alll come in the same can. They have a base color and a couple of incompatible accent colors. When sprayed, the base color wets the surface and the accent colors, being inompatible with the base color and each other, just sit on the surface. Applied alone the paint is very delicate and will wash off with water. However, it is a two part system so a clear coat is sprayed over the color. Once clear coated, it is as tough as any coating out there. I wouldn't have any problem painting an engine bay with it if that is the look I wanted.
