Okay, so I thought I was all finished with the painting
decorating in the Scamp
. I went to put the little table into the camper. Oh dear, it seem that this VERY shiney metallic paint
I chose- seems to RUB off a bit when you handle it, even tho it's been there drying for days.
Okay I thought, I'll just put a clear coat over it. I mention doing so and one of my sons says Oh ya just throw some Laquer over it.
SO.... I go buy Laquer. The only thing I have ever used for putting on furniture was some Polyurethane stuff.
I go to put the laquer on. IT MAKES THE PAINT
BUBBLE UP. Oh WHEN am I going to learn to READ the labels before I buy and open and try????
So, I had to wait and let that laquer dry thoroughly. SAND it all off in the corner that I put it on.... and drag out the silver paint
and re-paint that corner.
So- if we are taking off tomorrow, it's going to have to get used with the slight rubbing-off of the silvery paint! hahaha It will have to wait until NEXT week now and I am going to try plain ole Polyurethane finish then. Boy, I'm learning a LOT by doing these projects. No wonder painters and the like handymen are worth their pay. This is a lot of WORK. hahaha
This pic doesn't really show up how shiney the paint is- boy when the sun hits it right, it'll blind ya.
