So I’m applying polycrylic on a cedar chest I’ve restored. I’ve got 3 thin coats on so far, and it seems like once I get above 3, I get horrible brush marks. I’m brushing on a thin coat and tipping it off, all using a synthetic Purdy brush. I can sand the brush marks out with 220, resulting in a dull matte finish, but a solid coating.
I guess my question here is, what’s the next step to finish this off? Another coat? Something else? Any tips about the brush marks? Should I sand it down to dull, then apply a wax or something? Sorry if I sound stupid, but I’m relatively new to all of this.
Thanks in advance!
