Another sealer question - Oil base. Polyvine (pic)
I am usually over on the Decorating or Kitchen forum. This time I have a wood/sealer question so I hope I'm in the right place.
I was finally able to do a very miniscule-budget kitchen redo.
Because of the miniscule budget all our married lives, I'm pretty good at modifying what we have or what we repurpose to make it look presentable.
We couldn't afford bullnose trim on the edge of the counters so we went with wood.
Then, as more of the budget dwindled found out we couldn't afford the really nice stainable wood so we went with a really inexpensive paint-grade wood to use as the trim.
After experimenting in my paint lab (kitchen table) I was able to create a very dark expresso paint using Clear Glaze and UTs.
After applying the dark glaze I didn't care for the sheen on the wood trim.
I used Polyvine Dead Flat Varnish, one coat, to cut the shine of the now painted/glazed wood.
On top of the Dead Flat, I've added one coat of Clear Poly, Oil-base, Satin Sealer.
My question: Do I need to add a second coat of Clear Oil Poly for protection and if so, Do I need to lightly sand the first coat of Oil Base Sealer before adding the second?
I've always used water-base Poly and lightly sanded between coats.
With Oil Clear Poly I'm getting way too many different type of answers when I ask the people at Lowes and Home Depot.
Figured since GW was the place for all my Hummingbird/Kitchen/Bathroom/Decorating answers, I'd come here and get the Correct answer about the Oil Poly.
Thank you all very much.
