General Finishes Wood Bowl Finish Application Steps Over Raw or Stained Wood
- Work in a well-ventilated area.
- Stir topcoat thoroughly to reincorporate solids that have settled to the bottom of the can before use. Urethane topcoats are thin and the flatting agents used to create flatter sheens settle quickly to the bottom. Either stir and decant what you need to use immediately or stir frequently throughout the application process.
- Wood must be dry & clean before use.
- If desired, thin topcoat with 10-15% mineral spirits.
- Apply 3 coats. More coats will not improve durability.Finish sand between coats with a 220-320 grit foam sanding pad to improve smoothness and adhesion.
- Hand application: Apply a liberal amount of product using a cotton cloth, natural bristle or foam brush, staining pad with smooth, even strokes & light lap lines. The larger the surface the larger the applicator needed. Wipe off the excess evenly with the grain & with light pressure using a cloth or absorbent paper towel.
- Lathe application: Wipe on a thin even coat. Wet sand first coat with 400-grit wet/dry sandpaper or a 220-320 grit foam sanding sponge. Buff off excess with dry cloth.
- Remove dust with a vacuum, compressed air, a tack cloth or a water-dampened rag.
