Which brand of exterior paint is thickest (no drip / less drip)

I use to be real happy with Walmart paint. It seemed thicker to me than other brands and would be less drip - which tends to blow onto bricks when painting eaves.

Last batch i got at Walmart (both ColorPlace and Glidden) seemed too thin.

Any recommendations for a thick, thick paint?

Welcome to the forums!

There is a lot more to paint than it's consistency. Just applying a thick coat doesn't guarantee a lasting job. While I've used a stray gallon or two here and there over the years I really don't know anything about wallmart's paints. Most paint suppliers have both cheap and quality coatings with the cheaper coatings often being thinner. SWP's SuperPaint and Duration aren't thin and holds up well. Elastomeric paints are also heavy bodied but aren't suitable for every application.

Using the right brush and technique goes a long ways toward eliminating/reducing drips/splatters.
