Water Based Finish


How can I use water based finish & get good results? I need a low VOC product to use inside a residence. – Peter James


Gary R. Wood replies: If appearance is a concern with water based finish, I often wax over the last coat. Wax can give more depth and richness to the final finish. It is best to wait a couple of days before waxing. Like many surface films, water based finish dries quickly but needs time to harden.
