I have a project going that I would like to paint and the spray polyurethane on. I wanted a white wood, basswood is as close as I could find. It’s off white with no dark streaks. When I apply clear poly or lacquer on the scraps it darkens it too much for what I want.
I tried painting scraps with white paint and the spray poly over that. It appears to be working, but I wonder if it will hold up.
I wanted holly but didn’t want to buy quantity for the small amount I need. I have a piece of buckeye that I’ve had inside for 4 years. It is white on the outside, dark streaks on the inside, got dark with finish.
Been there? Done that? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!!
