In the distant past I used something called pre catalyzed laquer which came straight out of the container and wiped on. It was so easy to use and to get a good finish. Does anyone know if its still available and if so what the brand name is?
I was showed how easy it was to use pre-catalysed laquer at Senior Carmichaels - when I did a short stint there. Although they have spray facitilites - i was just doing a few samples - and so wiped it on. I had a spongy absorbent chunk of material- about the size of a golf ball around which was wrapped a strong piece of cloth possibly cotton. This was dipped in the laquer - the outer cloth keeping the surface "smooth" and the internal sponge acting as a reservior of the laquer.
Very quick and easy - and the results were very good.
