Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jon 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mzperfekt 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.

This product did not dry clear for me, the area still has a whitish film coat over it. It was applied evenly, and I have used similar products before, so I blame the product. Now the whole project has to be redone. Waste of money!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle31 Terrible, Attracts every little thing in the air
My surface was super clean, free of dust, oils, etc. Went to go apply and after a couple of strokes, hair follicles and anything else in the air gets pulled into the finish. So now I have to go sand off the finish. I was using a very good brush that Home Depot Recommended. Its very possible the finish was contaminated.... This item is terrible! Stay away.

This product is so easy to work with, water clean up. It dries clear and quickly. Only time will tell if it lasts. I painted an outdoor sign and used this product because it dries clear.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jagr Frustrating to apply
I have tried this polycrylic on many painted wood projects. The results are inconsistent. It is difficult to get even coverage. No matter how much or how little I load my brush, there are stoke marks and drips. I constantly have to watch for drips. Thankfully it all looks better when dry, but what an unnerving application process. I love to paint and refinish furniture, until I get to this step. Maybe I should try the wipe-on. I honestly haven't decided if the protection is adequate.

This is an ideal finish for a variety of projects. It works really well for any kind of wood project that uses pallet or reclaimed wood. If you like the existing color and texture of the wood, but want to give it some protection, this is the product you want. My most recent application was applying a couple coats over a hand-painted sign made out of reclaimed pallet wood. I was happy with the color and texture of the wood, but I wanted to protect the paint from chipping – it worked perfectly. It protects the paint and gives the wood a little bit of polish without making it glossy. Two thumbs up!
