DO NOT SHAKE THE CAN!
Get a stir stick and stir it, otherwise it gets a head for some reason which will leave bubbles on your project (in my case guitars)
I have not sprayed the polycrylic but I used a foam brush. Buy the wooster brand ones. The cheaper ones leave a rougher finish. It's water based so you can wash out the sponge.
When brushing it on:
Try to get it all in one shot. Don't keep going back and trying to get it right. Move your sponge slowly and you won't end up with so many bubbles and like I said, don't go back and retouch. LEAVE IT ALONE.
If it's white when you put it on, it's just thicker there and it will dry clear if you leave it alone.
For me, it takes around 8 coats total.
I brush on a coat, wait a couple hours and add another coat and do 3 coats/day max.
Get up the next day and lightly sand it with 320, blow off and wipe with a tack rag and do it all over again.
I usually wait 2 weeks before wet sanding 600,800,1000,1500 grits and buffing to a high gloss (mirror) finish. I use Meguars ultimate compound on a 3" foam polishing pad in my cordless makita drill. All can be bought on here.
I hope this helps as I had to figure it out on my own. Trial and error is frustrating.
Btw this stuff does dry fast, And it dries super hard. Also, if you're coming from using nitro or regular poly, this won't "burn in" like that stuff will. You WILL have to sand to get it to stick if it's too dry. Good luck!!
First coat went on fine, but I didn't sand it and whatnot before applying the second coat. As a result, it turned muddy. I tried wiping the second coat off, but that only made it worse. If you see muddiness, LEAVE IT ALONE! It will go away when dried, though may not disappear *completely*. Just make sure you follow the instructions and DON'T try to speed ahead.
Once finished, it looks nice and is more or less smooth, but it's not the best. Kinda sticky. Maybe I just did it wrong though... -shrugs-
