lakecat Posted April 27, 2016 Report Share Posted April 27, 2016 Using MinWax semi-gloss lacquer in spray cans and it just isn't working. It is leaving orange peel and can't get it smooth. It just dries so fast that is doesn't have time to flow together. I now have three coats on one cabinet and have sanded and steel wooled between coats to try and smooth the orange peel.....but it just isn't satisfactory. Some people might say it looks fine from three feet but in the light.....one can see it. Soooo.....I am retiring the lacquer attempt and going back to what I know....and that is poly. I have to now strip that dang lacquer and I have this cabinet stained so nicely. What a mess. Anyone else ever try lacquer? I was trying to use it like the original was but I see they use a spirit stain to flow the cherry color together and it masks the grain. These are much brighter in the grain and like it...so it is not like originals anyway. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
