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.

Can this be used over painted surface to put sealer on it

Can this be used over painted surface to put sealer on it
Asked by: Regina
Yes. I used it over Annie Sloan chalk paint about a year ago. I used a roller (large cabinet) and brush to apply. A year later, it looks fantastic and I'm able to wipe up spills easily. I was contemplating using Varathane for a coffee table I painted with Annie Sloan because of the cost. But, while reading the Verathane reviews about bubbles if applied with roller, I decided it's worth the extra cost. I know this finish will apply easily and won't give me a problem.
