Sanding Sealer Help


Can polyurethane be applied over a sanding sealer? Or what can't be applied over a sanding sealer may be a better question.

Yes, although I much prefer McCloskeys satin heirloom varnish. Much deeper rich, amber color on woods. I've used polys, can't compare to varnish in my opinion.

Most sanding sealers contain stearates and most of the polyurethanes I have seen recommend NOT applying over anything with stearates due to adhesion problems. Look for a sanding sealer specifically for use under poly and you'll be fine.

Sorry- I should have clarified. Definitely use the dewaxed shellac, I love first coat- use it on all my faux and enhanced grain finishes.

The problem is in the adhesion- it looks good but if you attempt to put tape on it, it can pull off to the sealer- which is why it's important to use something like the Seal Coat...
