can this be used on painted wood?

I have an old door with the original paint finish that I want to seal, would this product work for that?
Asked by: anxietyjunkie
Varathane Matte Polyurethane is great over previously painted surfaces. Keep in mind that you’ll want your previous paint to be cured for at least 7 days before applying the poly over the top. In addition, if you’re using a light colored paint, such as white, you may see some yellowing from the water based poly over a white pigment. If you’re using white, we suggest Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Crystal Clear Enamel: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Stops-Rust-12-oz-Gloss-Crystal-Clear-Spray-Paint-7701830/100176222

Will this leave a yellow stain as the satin finish did?

Asked by: yb
wouldn't think so. The poly is a milky white before drying.

We are trying to create personalized cork coasters and still researching to see what the best primer would be. After the primer and acrylic black paint, would you recommend using clear polyurethane or matte polyurethane or top it off? Which would provide the best protection for the black paint and daily use of the coaster?
Asked by: CorkCoasterDIY
Happy to help! We recommend using Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bullseye 123 Water-Based Primer/Sealer for your coasters. After you apply your acrylic black paint, it's recommended to wait a week before applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Matte Polyurethane. You'll want to apply 3-4 coats to ensure proper coverage and protection. It's a personal preference as far as sheen. You'll have excellent durability with either matte or gloss. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Bulls-Eye-1-2-3-1-gal-White-Water-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-2001/100398391

1/2 pt. Matte Soft Touch Polyurethane is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.

This product gave a soft matte finish, but not dull, with easy application and excellent leveling and dry time. I have done several wood projects lately and I was most recently using a Minwax satin finish poly. While I was happy with the satin finish, I found this Matte poly easier to apply, quicker to dry, and easier to achieve a smooth, soft touch finish with less sheen. I applied two coats then sanded lightly with steel wool before applying a third. Great for the barn-wood look that is so popular currently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job perfectly I used polystain on an old oak piece, and it came out too shiny. The matte polyurethane made it a matte finish, just what I wanted. Very quick and easy to apply.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me I used this polyurethane on a bunk bed refinishing project. After spending many hours stripping, sanding, conditioning the wood, and staining, I was happy to near completion. I applied 2 coats of this product (with the required min time between coats) and let it sit the two days the can said was needed before moderate use was acceptable. At the 2-day mark, the finish was nice looking, but had the hardness of candle wax. Just a little pressure from a fingernail could peel it right off. I hoped that the full seven days required for a complete cure would fix this problem. After two weeks, it is no better. Now I can only hope another product (e.g., Minwax Poly, Shellack, or Lacquer) can go over the top and provide hardness without requiring me to start the entire project over. I am very frustrated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless, easy, fast drying, strong, kid proof finish! This polyurethane is the best product out there! I have used it on two tables. A coffee table nearly a year old that my kids use for a dance stage half the time. And a dining room table. The finish continues to hold strong and is soft to the touch and gorgeous!
