Hi,<BR> Will lacquer satin finish take on Rustoleum paint? The color was right for some trim I had in mind.<BR> Ken<P>------------------<BR>

Ken,<P>I have sprayed clear lacquer over Rustoleum "Camoflauge Brown" which I was using on trim and did not have a problem.<P>You could always test on a scrap piece of wood to make sure.<P>Peter<P><P>------------------<BR> <A HREF="http://www.plasticradios.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.plasticradios.com</A>

Peter, <BR> I got this idea from one of your posts. Since the original trim on this Zenith 10S531 was a dark brown I decided to see what you came up with. The front grill bars they used a photo faux finish while the side grill bars were normal dark brown toner or paint.<BR> I had been using my own mixture of shellac, black/dk.brown boot dye mixed with alcohol but it took to many coats to catch the rest of the light trim up to the darkness of the end grain on the corners.<BR> Alan, thanks for your thread also.<BR> Ken<BR> <P>------------------<BR>

I once tried lacquer over a Rustoleum brown (don't remember which brown or which of the many versions of Rustoleum brand) and it was a no-go unless you wanted a nice crinkle finish.<BR>-Bill<P>------------------<BR>

The camoflauge brown that I sprayed laquer over was not like other rustoleum paints. As I mentioned in the thread before, it dried to to touch in seconds, much like lacquer. Other rustoleum spray products seem to take 2-3 hours to dry to the touch. They also crinkle on recoat, so I would not use one of those! This stuff, I sprayed it on, then hit it with clear lacquer less than 5 minutes later...no problem, and looked great.<P>Here's that thread from before:<BR> <A HREF="http://antiqueradios.com/forums/Forum15/HTML/000066.html" TARGET=_blank>http://antiqueradios.com/forums/Forum15/HTML/000066.html</A> <P>Peter<P><P>------------------<BR> <A HREF="http://www.plasticradios.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.plasticradios.com</A>

If you mix ebony and walnut minwax stain in with some lacquer in a small sprayer it will work nicely <P>------------------<BR><BR>

Peter,<BR> This rustoleum spray is called leather brown, dries to touch in 2-4 hours, says spray second coat after 2 minutes. I kinda like what Alan V. wrote ,"if it's completely dry, shouldn't be a problem." I have some veneer replacing on the front first, then I will give it a go.<BR> Ken<P>------------------<BR>
