I’m reading through on the topic and still have a question. I recently used polycrylic to cover my countertop surface. I have put about 4 coats on letting it dry between 2 to 24 hours between coats. I also sanded between each coat. It has been 24 hours since my last application and I am happy with the look…but if I get a drop of water on it and it is there for a couple of minutes it starts to leave a white water mark on the surface. When the area dries the mark will go away. However, it seems as if the surface isn’t fully protective because it seems to be weakened when water gets on it. What is going on? Should I be using a different finish? Is this normal?
