With everything going “green” it is getting very hard to find a paint for furniture and cabinetry that hardens. I have been staying away from the pre-cat and cat finishes. Latex will dry but never hardens, milk paint is – well, milk paint. My preferred choices are the oil based finishes but the quality is waining fast, mostly because the reduced VOCs.

Any ideas???

Many thanks
