American Traditions Paint

I'm just curious if anyone has used or had trouble with American Traditions paints found at Lowe's? We just recently painted our family room. The color turned out to be perfect. However, during the painting process, we noticed little pieces of 'paint skin' that rolled onto the wall, as we got towards the bottom of the paint can. The paint was supposedly mixed well at the store and we restirred it before use. If it had only been in one of the two cans we purchased we wouldn't have thought much of it but it was in both. (And what a mess to get them all off the walls and resmoothed!) So, I took the receipt and a sample of the paint skin back to Lowe's, thinking they would at least acknowledge their problem with the paint. The clerk's response? "Oh we've had several problems with this kind of paint in the last few weeks." Nothing else so I told her I was going to contact the paint company and she said that was a stupid idea. I did send an e-mail to them but have not received a reply to this point. So, please think twice before you use this brand of paint and I would like to hear if anyone else has had this type of problem. Thanks.
