European style, painted maple cabinetry. His and hers sides with different needs including electricity, vanity sitting area, laundry hamper pullouts, full extension self closing under-mount drawer slides, solid surface counters with integral sinks. Water-base white lacquer, sprayed of course with HVLP.

Very nicely done! Impressive!

What type of paint are you using? I’ve recently purchased an Earlex 5500 and i’m looking to paint up my first project but I have no idea what paint to use.
Thanks!

Tim – I used Aquacoat.com waterborne white top coat! Sprayed with my 5500 using the 1.5mm needle set.

Earlextech, thanks for the response. Can that aquacoat be colored if I don’t want white? Also, is there any way paint from a big box store (or Sherwin Willliams?) be used to get a finish like that?

Thanks!

Aquacoat makes a clear coat that you can tint with trans-tint yourself.
No you will not get a finish like that using latex paint. You can get a lacquer from SW and tint it in a similar fashion.
There are many waterborn finish manufacturers that you can look into. Waterborn works great with HVLP systems.

thanks for the advice Earlextech :D it has been trouble finding advice on paints. every book and site talks about thinning paint but no one gives actual brands. They are always generic non-specific answers that really don’t help. Thanks for putting me on the right path.

Have your say...
