  • poly over craft paints

    Hi, I have a question, can I use spray or brush on minwax polyurethane over craft paint? The kind you get at Walmart in the little bottles for around $1.00? This project was made from a 2x SPF.
    I have time in this and dont want to mess it up with the finish. thanks dan in Pa

    You can however polyurethane is an oil base product which means it will darken with time and give the colors a color shift to yellow. I would use Minwax Polycrylic which is a water base product.

      I have sprayed lacquer over craft paint with no issues. I would not recommend using a brush on or wipe on product.

        Bothe Fibber and Scott give good advice I use lacquer. The safest thing to do is try it on some scraps before you commit to the real piece.

          Use the water based product. Brush on will work fine (I use it all the time on the painted ornaments I make.) If you use a spray instead, make sure you check the directions and pay attention to the temperature when you use it - oh, and the humidity. I ruined a painted piece (Black cat) when I sprayed it - the spray ended up making a white film over the paint.
