I did ignore the instructions about there being no need to sand. Sanding smoothed out the lumps and bumps in previous owners' sloppy painting. Sanding never hurts!
I like the paint. I actually blended the colors to get custom colors and it blended smoothly. I was a bit intimidated by the different methods you can use to achieve different looks. I had planned on doing solid colors, but after applying the first two coats I practiced dry-brushing on the inside of the piece and decided to proceed. I did need to use two coats and I'm glad I chose to sand my piece in spite of reading that I didn't need to. When I was finished with my project, the paint washed out of my brushes easily and off of my hands without too much scrubbing.
I do feel that I need to address an issue I had with the varnish.... The paint (and all of the videos regarding the paint) mention using the stain blocker if you see the stain bleeding into the paint when you're painting. I lightly sanded all of my pieces. When I painted my furniture pieces, there was no bleed or color leaking. I actually did a swatch test before I painted to make sure there was not any bleed. Everything was perfect and I absolutely loved the look of my furniture pieces with the dry brushing I had done.... until I applied the varnish.
As soon as I put the Americana Varnish on, my piece started turning brown. Some of the new paint (3 layers and dried for 24 hours) actually disappeared. And some corners got a crackled look that wasn't there before. I tried to get it as even as possible, but it still dried weird with brown splotches that look like I spilled coffee on the new furniture I just painted. It dripped a little on the back and it actually just peeled up and off really easily - almost like old glue so I'm very concerned as to how much protection my piece is actually going to get from it and I will probably end up painting it again.
One of my pieces survived, the other I'm not happy with and will probably end up redoing WITHOUT the varnish. The best advice I can give is that if you decide to redo a piece either sand it all the way until there is no remaining finish (in spite of what all of the directions say) or do a swatch test with both the paint and the varnish.
