Lacquer over paint

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa367320c50>


I plan on painting my wood but I wanted to protect it against humidity. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with protecting painted wood? It seems that you can lacquer over latex paints, has anyone tried that?

On a related note, I vaguely remember something about spray painting at the space; is it still possible?

I’ve used polyurethane varnish over paint before and it’s worked out fine, no idea about lacquer though

Cheers. I’m mostly trying to be lazy since spray lacquer is quick and easy (or so the internet says)!

Yeah not having to faff around with paintbrushes etc. is always nice

I think all the solvents and stuff that keep it liquid enough to spray out of a can could sort of melt away the upper layer of paint and leave it looking weird

I guess that’s why it seems to be mostly suggested for latex paint. I should do a test run on a disposable piece of wood and see how I like it
