Water Based Lacquers

Mike Swain
>Hi all,

I read in Mike Schwing's "Sooner than you think" post below about the Fuhr water based lacquers he used on the finished piece.

You have far more restrictions placed on you regarding what you can and can't use in the US than here in the UK, how is the "evolution of water based lacquers coming on over there?

I was sent samples of water based lacquer to test and review last year but found that although I could easily achieve a quality finish in some places where I had sanded through the different layers of the clear I was left with a fine white edge where the finings from sanding found their way between the coats.

Regards....Mike
