It’s been a full day of finishing on the dresser, did the dye, then some amber shellac, now putting on the High Performance topcoat from General Finishes, sure hope UPS gets here soon, I’m about out of finish, I want to get 2 good coats on before calling it a day, I’m taking time to write this in between coats, there is sure alot of surface area to get covered, but its moving along, and since it’s about 105 in the spray booth ( really), its drying pretty fast , that’s a good thing, I did have to thin it a bit ( about 10%) so it would flow out , I could also have added a little extender to slow the dry a bit, but thinning it a little did the trick, it’s laying out nice.
I see Sherri got the newsletter all done and out, she was having some sort of computer issues, but got them resolved, In the newsletter we have a thing about signing up on the map that is att he bottom of our website, hope you do, it helps us see and show where all of you are at, even if it looks like it is saturated, sign up, its free,
