Trying to find a good recipe for Deft brushable satin12/27
I'm at my inlaws second home in Scottsdale, AZ amd the cabinets look like they have little to no finish "hardly evev a flat finish". This is disappointing for a high-end home. Since I don't have the resources to spray, I'm trying to use Deft's brushable lacquer.
I'm not surprised one bit that it appears very streaky and you can obviously see the brush marks until it really lays out and dries
More of a concern is that i added both a retarder and thinner to try and help the finish flow out better when it dries
I'm having a few issues...
1) when it dries, i really don't have brush matks, but in order to get the product to lay down nice, i had to add so much of both
(This is why I spent the money on a Kremlin back home!)
This is what I would do; put the Deft in the garage and get a gallon or 2 of Target 2000, some of their crosslinker, and a couple of high quality, soft brushes for WB finishes. The stuff brushes great, little to no stink and it will last longer than Deft.
Yeah, no fan of Deft myself. It already has the correct amount of retarder in it, then you added a bunch? It doesn't have a great water resistance either. Take the advice for the other product.
