Help with a finishing problem!!!

royalcustomDecember 15, 2008

I am staing some furniture and after about 3 days a white powder comes through, I can wipe it off but it comes back.

I am using Stain sealer and Pre cat lacquer.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can stop it.

Please don't assume that I assume you're a dummy! I have to ask: The stain sealer is water based or oil based? And is the 'white powder' coming through the sealer or have you already applied the lacquer? If something seems to be 'coming through', and you have lacquered over the sealer already, my first thought is that a) the sealer wasn't fully dry and so is still releasing VOCs (off-gassing) or b) the sealer and lacquer aren't playing well together (incompatible bases).
