Thank you all !! I’ll go get some water based poly. I was being cheap and trying to get by with what I have on hand.

I’m making a little box on the lathe. I have a request for a snowman, so I will be using all the same stuff.

What I will be doing is painting the basswood to get the white color I want, then sealing it with spray poly. It doesn’t need to be bulletproof, just little kid resistant.

In my experience, incompatible finishes have become immediately apparent. I always save scraps doing a project to test finishes on. The paint and poly I have seems to be working, I was thinking about the long term Thanks!!!
