I’m curious if anyone has had any exp. with Deft Brush on Clear Lacquer (not the spray can).
I’m on the finishing stage of a desktop and the matching shelves are finished and hung with Deft Clear Gloss Spray Lacquer.
I’ve done test pieces of curly maple cut-offs form building the desk with:
After 3 coats of both #1 and #2, it was obvious the finish would be too yellow-ish (maybe orangey) compared to how the shelves turned out.
After 4 coats of #3, I think I’m noticing some yellowing tint (the wife can confirm for sure tonight).
I’m curious if anyone has used the Deft Brushing Lacquer before on light wood (I’m using curly maple) and if so, did you get any yellowing? Or does that go away as it further dries? Should I trying something else or doing something differently?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. We really want to desk to be as light (white) as before the finish was put on. So far, I’ve taken great pains to do this project the “right” way and it’s looking fantastic. My stomach it turning at the idea of needed to settle with a finish that will tint the maple.
