I just bought a Fuji mini-mite 3 HVLP system and I’m dying to use it. If I could only find the finish I’m looking for…
I cannot find water borne pigmented lacquer (white) locally in Austin. ML Campbell doesn’t have a distributor in Austin. Sherwin Williams stores in Austin don’t carry Aqua KEM, and they even told me they cannot special order it for me. All I see on Woodcraft’s website is clear lacquers, and I would imagine that’s all they have at the big box stores as well. Target EMTECH EM6000 came up in searches, but on their website I don’t see this finish available pigmented. I’d prefer to find something locally, but would buy online if shipping costs don’t make it prohibitive.
Oh, is there a sealer (such as Deft sander/sealer, or a dewaxed shellac) that I should have no problem getting locally, spraying with this HVLP turbine system, and not having to wonder if the waterborne pigmented lacquer I choose will be compatible? That’ll at least give me something to do while I try to hunt down a lacquer.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Here is the first project, a Broyhill credenza bought cheaply at a second hand store. Planning on refinishing in white lacquer and possibly milling replacement drawer pulls out of brass or stainless.
