Questions & Answers

Can this be used as a protective coat over chalk painted items? I did a side

Asked by: Nita
Yes!! This is the only topcoat I use for my chalk painted projects. It's less work than wax, doesn't have to be reapplied, feels almost as soft as wax, doesn't yellow over white/light colors (if applied thinly & not allowed to pool or drip) and is very durable after 2-3 light coats then fully cured. You can use it gently once dry but after the 30 day full cure time, this stuff is very strong/durable. I've used it on high- use tables and my bathroom vanity and once cured have had no problems with chipping, scratching or wear. You will love how this feels and looks! The matte sheen is matte with a soft glow like you achieve after buffing wax lightly.

Asked by: Julie
We use this product over chalk paint all the time. It does not yellow. As far as matte finish, we have tried many products and this is the best as far as matte finish.

It should say water-based in big letters on the front of the can. It shouldn't be called polyurethane in the first place. Also, it scratches very easily! I let it dry for 4 days and was easily able to scratch it off with my nail. Useless! I just returned this product and bought some real Polyurethane (MinWax). Buying, trying and returning this product was a complete waste of my time, all due to misleading labelling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This found a permanent place in my finishing arsenal I am an expert wood finisher and have written many blogs on the subject. In my spare time I make furniture and other wood items. I have about 25 different types of finishes at my disposal because there really is no one-size-fits-all wood finish. Waterborne finishes have been growing in popularity lately and the professional grade stuff (post catalyzed polyurethanes and water white Lacquers) are on par with their solvent based brethren. The consumer level stuff however, still has flaws I do not like. This product is more pro grade. One thing I am not at all a fan of with waterborne finishes is the color tone. An easy comparison would be comparing a full spectrum photo grade lightbulb to an LED. the LED light is white to the point of being blue. Most consumer level waterborne finishes suffer from this too. There is a notable bluish tinge. This product did not do that. In addition getting a high quality Matte finish out of a can is difficult. There is always some level of gloss that needs to be knocked back; or there is a noticeable film built that refracts light in the corners letting you know it's there. Again this did not do either. I did use 4 coats to provide the desired protection so there was a considerable build, but not a noticeable one. This product did not alter the woods appearance any more than water would. It looks completely natural and untreated although the wood is sufficiently protected. Now before you run out and replace all your oil based finishes, there are a few things you should know. I see a lot of waterborne finishes getting negative reviews for what I am about to mention - but this is the nature of the product. 1. This will raise the grain upon initial application. The can says sanding between coats isn't required; but it is at least until the wood is sealed off 2. you HAVE to use a high quality synthetic bristle brush. A cheap brush or a foam brush will not do well. This finish dries fast and will actually dry on your brush if you do not use one that is capable of proper flow control. You will be dragging dried finish around your piece creating runs and sags. 3. This will not highlight or accentuate figured species. This will leave the wood grain fairly flat and natural looking. That is the goal of this finish. If you have figured wood or you want a rich tone, either use an oil based finish, an oil modified waterborne acrylic, or apply a washcoat of dewaxed blonde or amber shellac before applying this finish. In the attached picture you can see the difference this finish makes. This is a piece of walnut sanded to 220 grit. One side is finished with a natural Danish oil - which also is very Matte in appearance. The other is finished with this. As you can see the Varathane side looks like there was never anything applied. Also the tactile feel of this finish is amazing. Nothing plasticy about it. If you are into the natural look, this is your stuff.
