Durable water poloy
Need some advice please.
First time ever even considering a water based poloy. But have a gray stain to cover.
Big concern is I need the durability I am used to with oil poloy. May do a test to see if I could live with the amber color of oil poloy over gray. But dont like that idea either.
Stain is a Varathane oil based. Manufacturer did say there water based poloy was fine over the stain with 2 days drying.
Have a sample piece. After only 24 hours I left a damp paper towel on it overnight for a test. Result was a large white blotch area.
And no use kidding myself. The furniture I am working on will endup with the occasional cold drink set on it and then the condensation from that. Not for over night of course.
So have a few questions
Is water based poloy easy to spot repair?
If I waited a week longer, would it have been more durable?
I used varathane ploy to be sure it was compatible with the stain I was using for the first time. Oil but dries very quick.
Hear general finishes HP water poloy is top rated. Is it worth switching and using the GF product?
If so, use it directly over the oil stain. Or a coat of the varathane water poloy (so no question on compatibility) and then switch to the general finishes poloy?
Hope not to confusing, have a few questions in the above.
Thanks for all suggestions.
