I'm painting a piece of plywood and then attempting to put down a stencil and paint a pattern. It's going poorly. I think how rough the wood is most likely is the culprit so I hit it with the belt sander before any paint was applied. That helped. However it's still not acceptable. I think what I need to try now is to apply a clear coat of something, perhaps a sanding sealer, to help with the sealing of the mylar (with repositioning spray) or painters tape.

Any suggestions? And these types of products come in paint cans and not spray cans, right?

Any idea on how it works for smoothing out plywood? Meaning after I've hit it with a belt sander and given it a base coat, do you think that product will help create a nicer surface for tape to stick to and not allow paint to get underneath?
