What top coat should I use? It depends on your objectives; do you want a clear finish, fast dry time, interior or exterior use, a certain sheen, want to spray, etc. ? For an interior clear finish or a Flat finish, use HIGH PERFORMANCE water based topcoat.

For the top coat on this piece, I decided to try General Finishes Flat Out Flat, as the guys at the Woodcraft store said it’s flatter than the “matte” finish of other polycrylics out there. I absolutely love the finish it gives. It looks like it’s been buffed and polished, but I can spray it (which is a win-win) for me. | Evolution of Style Blog
