How to Apply Lacquer Couture!

Preparation:

Be sure the material to be lacquered has dried for at least 24 hours before applying Lacquer Couture!

1 Quart of Lacquer Couture! should cover approximately 150-175 square feet with one coat.

For increased smoothness or sheen, use 240 grit sandpaper on your work prior to starting the following procedure.  For increased smoothness, you can also sand between coats of Lacquer Couture! (use 240 grit sandpaper).

Wipe off sandpaper dust with a damp cloth or tack cloth.

Let the surface area dry.

Prior to use, stir the can (Do not Shake) of Lacquer Couture! to ensure you have a consistent product mix.

Applying Lacquer Couture!:

Note: Lacquer Couture! will look milky as you use it, but within minutes it will be clear as it dries.  You will notice how fast Lacquer Couture! lays flat, you do not have to overwork the surface area.

Apply the 1st coat of Lacquer Couture! with a quality brush, roller or sprayer.  If you spray you should be able to spray the product right from the can.  Depending on your sprayer, you may dilute Lacquer Couture! with up to 5% tap water.  Do NOT apply a thick coat; thin coats are best to achieve a beautiful and durable Lacquer look.  Lacquer Couture! will dry to the touch in about an hour and it will achieve total hardness in one day.  If it is very humid it will take longer to dry.

If a second coat is desired, allow the 1st coat to dry for at least 4 hours.  You should sand between coats (use 240 grit sandpaper).  Ideally, the room should be at normal room temperature (60-80F) with humidity lower than 75%.  Apply the 2nd coat of Lacquer Couture! with a quality brush, roller or sprayer.  Do NOT apply a thick coat, thin coats are best to achieve a beautiful and durable Lacquer look.

Clean up tools with warm, soapy water.
