Topic tags/keywords: finishing

I’m trying to remember if water based polycrylic will work over BLO. I’ve rubbed & brushed regular poly over BLO, but not water poly. I’ve gotten spoiled by the finish I can shoot with my HLVP gun and the water poly is real easy to deal with during and after applying the finish.

Should I go with a regular poly finish or shoot the poly acrylic???

Thanks,
Chef HDAN

Yeah… it’s not a problem as long as the BLO is good and dry.

I will second what Charlie said. You can apply water based finish products over oil base stain/finishes without any problem as long as you give the oil base finish time to cure.

Thank’s for the feedback. I finally got the time and the money to do a project I’ve had in my head for a long time, and the BLO color samples are just amazing, would hate to Eff it up with the top coat. Got the drawer faces wrapped with bead yesterday, should have the drawer boxes dovetailed and finished today. Should flip the shop for finishing next week.
