We use lacquer from Sherwin Williams. We also use M.L. Campbell lacquers. When a paint finish is required, we even use lacquer for the paint finish. One of my suppliers can color match a paint for us in lacquer based product. It is easy and fun to use with great results.

We do not sand in between coats. We apply approximately 3 coats of sand/sealer on and then hand sand, baby smooth. Then we top coat.

Agreed that the brushing Deft lacquer has retarder added to allow it to be brushed. We do not use that lacquer but I believe it would work fine. We often add retarder to our lacquers to help in the spraying process. In fact I would recommend having retarder on hand when spraying lacquer.
