exterior paint for furniture
I've just finished painting a bookcase using exterior black paint in a low luster finish. The problem is that the paint feels kind of waxy when I rub my hand across the dried piece. It's been dry for over a week but still has that waxy feel to it. I guess I'll have to varnish over it but was wondering why the exterior paint does not have that smooth feel to it like interior paint.
Also, I'm going to use gold Rub'n'Buff on the edges of the bookcase. Should I put the gold on before or after the varnish? Thanks.
