Whilst making my weekly purchase of Deft i noticed they also have a "water borne lacquer"
i would welcome any discussion, pros and cons on this product

Yeah, I could look it up but as I have said before...... Slingblade voice on :

I don't know that I have ever seen a Deft Waterborne Lacquer. I know they market a waterborne poly and a waterborne acrylic finish. Actually, their waterborne poly is an acrylic with a dollop of urethane. I don't know that their waterborne products are significantly different from those of other manufacturers. All manufacturer's product have some slight differences and may "handle" (brush or spray" somewhat differently. Only way to know how they work for you is to try them on scrap or cardboard boxes to see how they work.

I've done a little with WBL but it wasn't deft brand. It's an OK finnish and it lays down fairly well BUT [yep theres always a but] it will raise the grain on the first and sometimes the second coat requiring sanding. Oil doesn't seem to do that near as much. it sands easily though and the smell is much more pleasing that real lacquer:gar-Bi. drying times are about the same as the real stuff so you can do several coats a day. I got some [I think] and you can give it a try if you like.

. . . . it will raise the grain on the first and sometimes the second coat requiring sanding.
Just curious, wonder if you could eliminate that by making the first coat a thinned shellac? I think you can put shellac under WB lacquer, can't you?

Also, is this Deft WB lacquer just for brushing, or can it be sprayed?

I've used it in my small spray gun. Not bad and real easy cleanup.
