Just wanted to show you my finished wall unit. It was built with cherry wood and MDF. A while ago, I asked about spraying lacquer, etc. I decided that I didn't want to mix Japan colors and cut with thinner. This unit was totally sprayed with 12 oz premixed colored lacquer from architectural.net (easy on). It took 50 cans. I did 4 coats and sanded in between with 400 paper. I used mahogany red and mahogany brown. I did matching trim on top and bottom and going around the room (after this photo was taken).
My next project, I'll mix the lacquer, unless you know of a place I can order premixed colored lacquer for a hvlp spray gun!
Here is a newer picture with the new hdtv.
From contributor G:
Any distributor will tint lacquer to any color you want. Some will even put it in spray cans for you, but at about $10/can, it has to be the most expensive way to finish that I can think of. Didn't your finger get tired?
But you didn't ask about putting it in spray cans… Of course, WB lacquers can be tinted.
