Waterlox over a water based paint-problems.
I am trying to stain a butcher block counter with a white wash water based paint. On my test samples, when i put the Waterlox over the paint , it seems to remove a lot of it and smear it.
I am not letting the paint dry for the recommended 72hrs, but rather ~12 hrs. So maybe that is the only issue. But would I be better off regardless with an oil based paint instead?
I am going to go back and try it with longer dry times in between the paint and Waterlox in the meantime.
And search for a 'white wash' oil based paint. Someone recommended CAbot so will look into that too. Any other suggestions?
