  • spray on gloss

    Just a quick question on spray on gloss acrylic. I use this reqularly on painted items such as segmentation/intarsia with wonderful results. I tried it on baltic birch ornaments. I used almost 2 cans of the spray and when dried, the bb looked like it hadnt even been sprayed. Is there a trick to sealing the bb first before spraying. when i use the brush on acrylic, (same brand and style) i get a good finish. Just curious why i cant with the spray on.
    Have a great day..Teddy

    The plywood is going to soak the finish up. When you spray you are putting a very light coat on. So it will take a lot of coats to get a thicker finish.
    You can try sanding with a brown paper bag between coats of finish. It will give a smoother finish.

      You can seal the BB first using shellac. Then it will not absorb as much.

        I always use a sealer first, it makes quite a difference.
        I buy at Michaels.

            Try danish oil on the ply prior to clearcoating. Also, theres a rustoleum clear called ultra2X that does a great job of building a thick finish relatively quickly.

              I agree with the sealer, i makes a big difference. it also will allow for some more even coverage.

                I use "Deft" sanding sealer first. Lightly sand it and then spray on acrylic.

                  Since my wife can't have oil based product around here I use a sanding sealer that is waterbased from Ace Hardware on my stuff first.

                    Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                    I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                    These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
