I just completed refinishing an pine aquarium stand with that Minwax
stain/urethane product. The cleanup said to use mineral spirits.
I'm not satisfied with the gloss finish so I found a spray can of Varethane
for outdoor wood furniture in my cupboard, water base.
Do you think after the Minwax fully dries, I can spray on the Varethane for
a little extra gloss?
Read both cans, but most likely yes, it will be ok after the original finish
completely dries. Give it a few days to thoroughly dry and for the solvents
to outgas. Scruff the surface with either steel wool or 1000 grit wet
sandpaper, or a 3M pad to provide good adhesion. I'm not familiar with
Varethane - is it a polyurethane or a urethane? In any event, if you let it
dry very well, you should be home free.
What does the varethane say?
I had some outdoor varnish I wanted to use on a piece of goncalos alves to
prevent it from darkening from UV. The can said it could not be used
I contacted the manufacturer. They said it would not perform properly
indoors; but didn't explain why.
Your product may not have that problem, but it might.
thanks everyone, I will checked the label again. I gave it a quick once over
and it said nothing about not spraying over the Minwax. I called them and
they just recite the label. I sprayed the inside of one of the doors and no
