Krylon Products began its journey in 1947 as Foster & Kester. The brand introduced brush-on, clear protective acrylic coatings that were used in the large-scale art market. Kester innovatively created a way to blend his layers into aerosol paint, motivated by the DuPont Corporation's development of a formula that combined gas and liquid into a single spray can.
