Rub Through Schedule11/16
I'm working on a project that includes an island and a hutch with a rub through finish and having never done one before would appreciate input on what I was planning.
They will be Shaker doors on Knotty Alder and will be a dark red color. The architect wants just the edges rubbed through and panels intact. One sample will have a black glaze and the other won't. I typically use ML Campbell products so would like to keep with them.
My plan comes from looking back at old forum posts. Start with a post cat clear sealer and then spray a pigmented vinyl sealer. Before it cures, with a rag wrapped around a block of wood and dampened with lacquer thinner, do the rub through. I would follow with 2 coats of Krystal CV and sandwich ML Amazing glaze between on the one sample.
Is the pigmented vinyl sealer the best product for the color in this case or would something else be better? Something too hard and may be hard to rub through. Also, not sure if one coat will give me enough color.
Will this work??
I've come to it by a different method. Use colored primer for your first coat and use sandpaper to rub through, then clear coat. Your dark color might be a problem as you can only tint primer so much.
