Here you can see where I put some finish on a very rough surface. I used spray on lacquer and I sprayed everything, including the smooth parts. I never over-sprayed because I did not want any runs or streaks. I believe I applied 10 coats.

One tip – Before spraying the rough surface, blast it with you air compressor to get it as clean as possible. In theory, a power washer may work even better, but it seemed to messy to me and it could have been too powerful.
