...and a little short of time tonight.
I have two tins of Wipe-On Poly. One is nearly empty, it is “Clear Gloss”. The other is almost full- “Clear Satin”. Trouble is, I want to end up with a gloss finish. Can I build the first 2-3 coats with the satin, make the last coat with my little bit of Gloss, and end up with gloss? Will the “cloudy” satin show through? Or should I mix the two, just figure it will be a little bit (a lot?) satin, and live with it?
I hate to run out and buy a pint of this stuff, I almost never use it, usually preferring Waterlox or just Watco. A pint of gloss is liable to sit on the shelf next to the satin for years before I have another call for it. Not to mention, I am about in the hole on this job, another 10 bucks doesn’t help.
thanks for your thoughts.
