I have used deft spray can lacquer on nearly 100 of my boxes and have found that it is very important to spray lightly misted coats and always move the can quickly so as to not spray in one spot more than a fraction of a second. If you spray too heavily or linger on a spot it will produce the orange peel effect or even worse…run.
I always buff with steel wood in between the first several coats.

As others have mentioned…the tempurature and humidity will also be a determining factor. You will know if it has drieds enough when you sand between coats and get a fine powder when sanding.

-- Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpieceā€¦ because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work
