I’m having a problem with the use of brushable lacquer on a serving tray I am making. The first coat adhered fine. But subsequent coats either drag, stay thick in some areas, and don’t even cover or stick in others. Any guidance would be appreciated. Here are the facts:
Using Minwax Brushable Lacquer.
I now have a build-up of about 5 coats. I think that should be enough protection. But the final coat looks like hell. Should I thin the “next” final coat and flood the surface? Should I use a bone-dry brush with no thinner residue? What about using a spray lacquer for the top coat? Recommendations?
