I am painting a face frame for a drawer front.

1. is it beneficial to sand between coats of paint?
2. is there a sealer or poly I can apply over the hybrid paint to extend the longevity of the finish?

Thanks- Andrew

There are many companies that manufacture this type of paint and in different finishes from primers all the way up to high gloss enamels. Most can be over coated with a waterborne poly but you should check with the manufacturer to insure there are no incompatibility issues with their products.

The Waterbased oil enamel are quite durable and I would not think you would need to overcoat it with poly unless it is an extremely high service area.

1) if you are planning on 2 coats, yes. For 3 coats, you could just sand prior to the 3rd.

2) you probably could put a clear poly or lacquer on top, but not sure why you’d think that necessary. The oil-water hybrid paints are pretty tough on their own. A top coat doesn’t add much, if any, protection. It would also interfere with the ability to do repairs to the finish
