Test Piece With Roll-On Method

Post by T-Bucket Bob 23 on January 4th 2009, 10:28 pm

This is the piece I started with:
1. Primed and Cleaned with mineral spirits: Click on picture thumbnail

2. I mixed 1/4 qt. Sunburst Yellow and 1 cup mineral spirits.
3. First roll-on picture:

4. I waited about an hour and apply a second coat:

I plan on doing some more painting this week and then start to sand. What grit should I start out with after 2 coats?

Thanks, T-Bucket Bob

I did 400 grit to get the nubs out and smooth. You need to sand in between at least every 2 coats to assure it stays smooth. as i got close to the last coat, i did 400 grit, followed by a VERY light 800 grit with alot of water to get the 400 sand marks out. then shot the last coat.I did satin so i did not sand the final coat, but if you have any nibs or bumps, you will probably want to use 2000-2500 grit to smooth before buffing and polishing.
Also be sure to ALWAYS WET sand, never dry sand.
