How do I clean this off?

Can I just swish it in water many times like other water based liquids? Or do I have to use mineral spirits/paint thinner?
Asked by: Foamz
Hi - I'll try to answer your question as best I can. If you mean for cleaning up your brushes or other, you bet. It cleans up super easy with water, a dot or two of dish soap on the brush if you want, moosh it around into the brush and then rinse with water, you are good to go. You don't need mineral spirits or paint thinner at all with Polycrylic. It works just like the easy to use Latex water-based paints as far as cleanup goes. I hope I answered your question and best wishes with your project! Deb

Can this be applied over solvent based concrete sealer that has cured.

This is for a floor application to cover faux paint that has covered a boo boo on new acid stained floor that has 2 coats of solvent based concrete sealer. This floor will then be waxed.
Asked by: fireman
Wow, that's a lot of different types of products on one surface. I get where you are going with this, but I don't think Polycrylic is your answer. It's water based, so is wax. Whoever strips the wax to apply new will remove it. My thought is to get a spray can of Rustoleum clear in either satin or gloss to match the current unwaxed finish and just lightly mist it on there (sparingly) & let it dry good. That should seal the paint covering the boo-boo and not come off when future wax is applied or stripped. Crossing my fingers for you, Deb

Can I use this over oil base stain on my dining table top?

Asked by: AGA
Yes, but make sure the stain has dried completely (at least 24 hours). If you're uncertain, wait until the stained wood no longer has an odor. Minwax says don't use it over the Minwax Wood Finish Red Mahogany stain, but all others should be fine. Check out the following for other details:

Can this be used successfully over a copper penny backsplash?

Want to seal from occasional steam, water splashes and tarnishing.
Asked by: Joyce
First of all, I'm so jealous! LOL. That MUST be beautiful, what an awesome idea - copper penny back splash. Bravo on doing it! I was so intrigued by your project I did some research. I would not recommend Polycrylic in this application because it is water-based. In other words, if it gets wet it can turn white-ish or degrade. However, I found a great deal of information on using Minwax Super Fast-Drying Polyurethane For Floors instead. It comes in a different finishes (semi-gloss, gloss, satin). This is available through Home Depot. You'd want to brush a very thin coat to keep it from running, but one coat should do well. Don't over-work it with a brush (drag a brush with it when it's tacky or drying). Best wishes with your project!

1 qt. Satin Polycrylic Protective Finish is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever for Everything This is the BEST product ever! I use this on everything. From decoupage projects to my hardwood floors. It was also used on my painted kitchen cabinets. My dining table was refinished over 20 years ago with this product and there is not a knick or scratch on the table top - and we use it everyday. I've refinished countless furniture pieces and have found that this product provides the best protective coating. Buyer Beware - there is a disclaimer not to use with latex paint. With this caution in mind, I have found that this product can and has tinted latex paint. The outcome has been a yellowing or as I prefer to say it provides an antique glaze effect to piece being worked on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not dry clear Dont use this unless your base coat is white or cream. I bought this product as a top coat for a dresser I painted black. It left a white tint on the dresser. I had to gently sand the finish off. I ended up using a spray can of polyurethane. I painted bifold doors a light cream and used this product and the finish turned out fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this stuff Ive been using this stuff instead of regular old poly and so far its great. Ive used it on several wood projects including a coffee table and clock with various types of stains and no yellowing. Ive put it over white trim paint with no discoloration. Note to user: this stuff works great in a compressed air HVLP spray gun. Coats even and clear, sand with 300 or higher grit paper with very light pressure, comes out smooth as glass. Unfortunately, Ive just started using this stuff so I cant speak to its durability over time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bubbles. Can't get rid of the bubbles. Lots of bubbles everywhere. I followed the directions. Did... Bubbles. Can't get rid of the bubbles. Lots of bubbles everywhere. I followed the directions. Didn't shake the can, 70 degrees, didn't overbrush, high quality Purdy synthetic brush. The surface was completely dry, a table that's many years old. No dust in the room. Just bubbles. I read lots of message boards, and tried a foam brush, wet sponge of two types. Didn't scrape the brush on the edge of the can. I read somewhere there's a special brush that Minwax makes that works better- but they don't say that in the directions on the can. I guess spraying is the best way to apply, but I don't do this often enough to buy that equipment. I'd like to give it one star, but that means "I hate it" and I don't like to say that. But I'm not going to use this on anything I care about looking nice. And it's expensive. Pros: dried clear, at least in my application. Cleans up easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from probably a good product - did not work for me I was looking for a product to provide a waterproof barrier over water soluble stain in order to protect curtains and blinds when there is condensation on windows in the winter. The stain did not bleed quite so badly but it would have still ruined curtains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST of this type product. I hope they don't change the formula. Best of anything i ever used on furniture indoors. Have used this for years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I used it on a dresser that I painted white and it performed beautifully. A year later it is still as clear as the day I applied it and has been very durable. It was a breeze to apply - I actually used a sprayer to apply it - and it dried in a snap. It dried much quicker that polyurethane and has never yellowed one bit like poly will. And since it's water-based it doesn't have the strong odor and fumes like all of the other clear coats have, and it cleans up with soap and water. I don't know what the other reviewers who reported to have problems did wrong, but if you just follow the instructions you will not be disappointed. It's actually pretty idiot-proof, which makes it a great clear coat for almost anyone to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best and Most Versatile Product I've Found - EVER I'm not a neat painter person... In fact, I generally wind up wearing more than I get on the surface. I started doing tile mosaics on wood a couple of years ago and began using wood stains and sealers on the trim pieces. Everyone said the oil based and bar top type varnishes were best, and, it's possible that they are. I wouldn't know, you see. The first quart I bought I dropped onto a hard surface floor accidentally - it broke right open and soaked a $1200 rug. Awesome. The second quart I bought it was a windy day when I went to use it, it took forever to dry and wound up with bits of dust stuck all over it. I had to sand it and start over. Enter Minwax Polycrylic - it changed my life. I LOVE this stuff. Drop the can? No worries, a spray bottle of windex and you're good to go. It dries fast, thus provides a much shorter window of time for me to mess the finish up. Uses for Polycrylic? What Can't You Use It On? I use it on a lot of stuff, like, just about anything I want to seal that is not going to set out in the rain. I apply it to painted surfaces, some of my metal sculpture pieces, and... wait for it... my fingernails. Not sure Minwax wants that promoted, but there it is. Dull rocks that would otherwise be pretty? No problem, smooge some Polycrylic on there. Shabby-chic wood furniture? Too easy - a quart of cheap white paint and Polycrylic & you're good to go. Those ugly clay pots getting you down? Get out your brush and paint 'em, seal with Polycrylic. I'm serious, I use it on about everything. Don't have a drip pan for your 1956 F100? No worries, scrap of plywood coated with you guessed it, Polycrylic. Have fun!
