Satin poly over semi-gloss - 9 replies

Hey guys, Another quick finishing question. Got some water-based poly on sale. I prefer the look of satin, but they only had it in quart sizes. So, I got a quart of satin, and a gallon of semi-gloss.

Storing Water-Based Finish - 13 replies

Hi all, I’m hopeful that one or possibly more can shed some light on an issue for me. Like many of you, I don’t get into the shop as often as I’d like, so I have a can of General Finishes Water-Based Top Coat that’s been sitting for about a year. The finish is fine, but the rim of the can has started to rust. The ...
