Can this be used over both the GF gel stain and GF Milk Paint? If using White Milk Paint, what "stain blocking primer" is reccomended?
Asked by: AKH
Yes, the is a water based topcoat - milk paint is water based so it can be used immediately after drying. However, the gel stain is oil based and must be cured for AT LEAST 72 hours before. I let my gel stain dry for 5 days before using the HP and it looks great.

1-qt. Gloss High Performance Polyurethane Interior Topcoat is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this product as a topcoat on a king bed frame that I painted using General Finishes Lamp B... I used this product as a topcoat on a king bed frame that I painted using General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint. I am very happy with the finished work! This top coat has a tiny amount of sheen, and applies easily. I applied the topcoat with a good quality brush and then lightly went over it with a dry foam brush to smooth it a bit. It doesn't leave brush strokes (except for a couple spots that I brushed when it had begun to dry in those spots - but I was able to lightly sand after it was dry and re-coat to fix that.) Excellent product! My second-hand (free) king bed frame looks like it came straight from Pottery Barn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be more pleased with this product. Wanted something non-yellowing, non-shiny and durable... Couldn't be more pleased with this product. Wanted something non-yellowing, non-shiny and durable for an 80's oak table I was refinishing. After reading a bunch of reviews came across General Finishes. Decided to take a chance on it. I have used Minwax water-based brand in the past but it got chipped with use. My husband and I stripped off the old finish, waited over a week plus some for it to dry out good as we had used mineral spirits to clean off the stripper. We sanded good, then applied the topcoat (did not stain). To this topcoat we added 20% water to it hoping to extend dry times. We live in high desert and humidity levels at the time of application were around 25-35%. We used a foam brush and worked quickly. Ended up applying 3 coats on the base and the top 5 coats, letting it dry for 3 weeks before using it. Super pleased with the results. Love the low luster and after a month of use, nothing has marred the finish. My only frustration is that our Home Depot does not carry this product in the store and shipping takes a good week to our location in Idaho. And the price. Wow. Super expensive. But hope it will pay off in the long haul.
