Pain in the A$$
Varnish Makers & Painters (VM&P) Naphtha is a purer byproduct of the refinery process for petroleum. It's much higher quality that mineral spirits.GROOVY said:is naptha better than mineral spirits? and why ? I am going to be using shellac for the finish on by crib as soon as it gets less humid here..
It's a very volatile & flammable solvent that is used as a thinner. It helps the finish penetrate & evaporates fairly quickly, thereby speeding up drying times.
