The finish depends on how it is applied. This was my first time using it, and also keep in mind that it is a matte finish. So yes, it does have a slight texture to it, more so than a factory orange peel paint job. However, it still has a smooth feel. But with practice, heavier coats, and using a Dip gloss clear over top, one is supposed to be able to achieve a very smooth finish.

Clean-ability also depends on the finish, as well as the color. A matte finish, just like a matte paint, will tend to be a bit harder to clean. This is usually only noticeable on really bright colors though, like white. This silver is a fairly mid-tone color, and I have yet to have something that didn't come off with a basic washing. For matte white, the community seems to say that it is a bit more susceptible to staining, and recommends a Plasti Dip satin or gloss clear coat to ensure easy removal of contaminants.
